lyrics

"I do" say the shiny white kids
Standing in the shadows of June
Figure out what is gonna come next
Confident and eager to please
Oh, yeah we were once kids ourselves, obviously
Whispered our hearts into cans and string

Block out every trace of regret
Get friendly with the force of the law
Parallel with other lives that we lead
With where we were and where we are now
Oh, it takes a telescope
To see the light, it reaches us just
When it starts to die

And these are the words
We can't take back

We cannot hide behind the lies that we tell ourselves

My heart don't explode anymore
Each and every time you resist
Maybe now, we accept what we've done
Find comfort in the casual kiss
Because we are not magical, we never were
We just believed everything we heard

These are the words 
We can't take back

We cannot hide behind the lies that we told ourselves
We cannot hide behind the lies that we told ourselves
