Preventable Fight

I stayed up all night thinking of his face
And wondering if he did the same
I was lust struck and full of hope
Didn’t catch it was just a joke

But he has got some pulsing nerve
To lead me down that road back to earth
He crossed the line to prove it all
And I wasn’t the only one who saw it
But now I sit in confusion
Cause he left me for some chick

And every time the water boils high enough to sing
I punch the tears away and step outside of the ring
I’m reminded of the reason my heart stays empty
And I kick myself for wishing he was next to me
‘Cause that spot is taken

These days my shadow never leaves my side
Even as I run through the rain it pushes me to every stride
And the trust I’ve gained by learning I hate half the race
Is more than I could have put to waste
So take your big baby blues and keep them out of mind
‘Cause I won’t be hurt by anybody with your kind of pride

That’s when I take it out on the keys
Slam the meaning into every beat
And when I’ve memorized how it will go
I’ll stay up all night putting on a show

He’s just a blip on my box of memories
Remembered as the one who never got to see
But deep down it may be more
‘Cause he built me up to where I am
He’s the reason I jumped in and swam
Why I’ll tune out when a line is crossed down the road
So this is the message the bottle wants you to know

It reads every time the water boils high enough to sing
I punch the tears away and step outside of the ring
I’m reminded of the reason my heart stays empty
And I kick myself for wishing he was next to me
‘Cause that spot is taken

These days my shadow never leaves my side
Even as I run through the rain it pushes me to every stride
And the trust I’ve gained by learning I hate half the race
Is more than I could have put to waste
So take your big baby blues and keep them out of mind
‘Cause I won’t be hurt by anybody with your kind of pride

Hope he sees that jealousy is not a test
It only knocks down everything we built up to this
Wish he wonders what could have been
So that missing out helps it to never happen again
And for all the future chicks who may drop in
Know I’m not someone you want to be messing with

I’ll make it that every time the water boils high enough to sing
I punch the tears away and step outside of the ring
I’m reminded of the reason my heart stays empty
And I kick myself for wishing he was next to me
‘Cause that spot is taken

These days my shadow never leaves my side
Even as I run through the rain it pushes me to every stride
And the trust I’ve gained by learning I hate half the race
Is more than I could have put to waste
So take your big baby blues and keep them out of mind
‘Cause I won’t be hurt by anybody with your kind of pride

Don’t think for a second that he was put out of sight
But it was an easily preventable fight

Artist's Description

I got hurt, and it only strengthened that fact that I don’t trust guys.
I hate relationships, that’s why I stay away from them.
