Lyrics

I held on so long
To what I’ve wanted
You to become
I see that you are not
What I dreamed you to be
That’s not your fault
See, long ago, I made up my mind
She would be the love of my life
Now I see ignorance is bliss
See, I fell in love with an idea in my head
That’s not who she is
See, I, I take a thought
And I’ll let it grow 'til underneath it’s weight I am caught
When all I saw was a glimpse of who you might be
I laid down these bricks
Building walls, so lovely and strong
There’s no way, no chance I am wrong
Our castle stands, and I know just where she’ll fit
She’ll be with me here in my arms, I’m crazy in love
With who I think she is
When I finally get to see you
I latch onto the hope I see in you
And I won’t let go
I’ll say look there’s a chance what I hoped for might actually be so
But I cannot justify this
Small suspicion that slowly is creeping in
That our castle walls are shaking
I fight the fact maybe I was mistaken
And I hate when I knew
That nothing was real in all that I had believed to be true
And the walls came crumbling down
And all I could think was where is all that wasted time now
See, long ago, I made up my mind
She would be the love of my life
Now I see I never really knew her one bit
See, I fell in love with an idea in my head
But that’s not who she is
No, that’s not who she is
That’s not who she is
