Lyrics

You held her and said
"I'm not worthy, but I'll try to be a better man."
"If you don't have the time then leave
I've been waiting all year for something that was never really here."
"Well you were never really here."

Your nose and your throat
and everything that's in between
Two eyes just like mine
A pair I wish could've seen
The times you were the best you could be with me
We were never meant to be
We were happening

You're a shallow hole and everyone can see
If I called you now would you be there to answer me?
Cause I don't know if I would answer you
When I cross the gates and I find you

Remember you said
You're so nervous you're so tired
Cheap talk, unsteady walk
For such a pretty liar
Finding old souls to cast a mold
And then set fire

And if you want I could take you higher and higher

You're a shallow hole and everyone can see
If I called you now would you be there to answer me?
Cause I don't know if I would answer you
When I cross the gates and I find you

I don't know what I've been told
The road I walked was paved with gold
But oh, you didn't want to go

I don't know what I've been told
The road I walked was paved with gold
But oh, you didn't want to go

Well I don't know if I would answer you
When I cross the gates and I find you

You're a shallow hole and everyone can see
If I called you now would you be there to answer me?
Cause I don't know if I would answer you
When I cross the gates and I find you

Shallow hole and everyone can see
And if I called you now would you be there to answer me?
Cause I don't know if I would answer you
When I cross the gates
