lyrics

If this is how it goes
Than I’ll take it from here
I’m rusty and it shows
I guess it’s been a long time
Maybe I should take a hint
Pack my things and go
Instead of picking at the pieces
Cause it’s been such a long time

If you won’t say a word
Then I’ll just say, “I love you”
Could that be enough
For you
Cause this is how it goes

Well I might fall down
And I might break promises
But I love you still
I swear I mean it
If it’s just too hard
If it’s too big a risk to take
If you’re just too scared
You didn’t really mean it

If you won’t say a word
Then I’ll just say, “I love you”
Could that be enough
For you
Cause this is how it goes

If this is how it goes
Than I’ll take it from here
I’m rusty and it shows
I guess it’s been a long time
