Replace You - Silverstein

I'm the setting sun behind the trees, the saddest one you've seen
I've been burning holes and breaking dreams and I regret it

I'm fixing things I've broken, it's not as easy as it used to be
I'm throwing temper tantrums, I used to settle but now I make a scene
You can't believe

I said I'd never walk away but I'm not able to stay
I said I'd never leave this place but I can't stay here
To watch you fade and watch you change into someone I can't face
I can't replace, I can't replace you

You're the swirling wind above the sea, the maddest storm they've seen
Now you're breaking waves and smashing dreams and you can't help it

You're drowning streets and stranding a million people
but starting out with me
You're crashing down from anger,
you stopped and settled and now you're sound asleep
And so serene

I said I'd never walk away but I'm not able to stay
I said I'd never leave this place but I can't stay here
To watch you fade and watch you change into someone I can't face
I can't replace, I can't replace you

And when the sun is down
And when the skies are calm you'll see
(calm you'll see) calm will be (calm will be)
We'll wait for the cycle (we'll wait for the cycle)
We'll repeat our same mistakes (same mistakes)
Same mistakes we've always made

I said I'd never walk away but I'm not able to stay
I said I'd never leave this place but I can't stay here
To watch you fade and watch you change into someone I can't face
I can't replace, I can't replace you (replace you)

I said I'd never walk away (walk away) but I'm not able to stay
I said I'd never leave this place but I can't stay here
To watch you fade and watch you change into someone I can't face
I can't replace, I can't replace you

I said I'd never walk away
