lyrics

To every swollen throat and broken note, I sang a melody to keep them far from my reach. As I leave, I know no words can make amends, but the ticket's in my hands and I'll soon be riding on the wing with style and simplicity.

Simple doesn't mean it's easy to live with the choices that are taking me so far away from all that you're becoming and everything you'll do. I hope someday you learn to see yourselves the way I see you.

With every self-indulgent argument, another rant about minding the gap took shape inside my head. Somehow, from every time they said, "Hey, kid - just play it safe" to every night spent wiping sorrow from my face, you drew me out of my uncertainty with style and simplicity.

Thanks for never letting me give up, for giving me the guts to make this mine. Though I've been counting down the days and nights to our goodbye, you know I'd be lying if I said it doesn't break my heart to walk away, but I can't stay.

So this is where I say something inspiring and remind you how beautiful you are, but truth be told, I just want you to know that stay or go, because of you, this place is home.

To every swollen throat and broken note, I'll sing a melody to keep them far from your reach as I leave.
