about

This eerie, but ultimately inspiring, song is for everyone who has ever lived in the same town as their ex-friend or ex-lover.

lyrics

Don't you come back now (x2)
Have you ever had such a clean shot?
Have you ever felt so big?
Do you have any idea what you're doin?
Or are you clueless?

Never been real good at stayin mad
but I'm trying to unlearn forgiveness.
I don't think you deserve it anyway but
who am I to say?

My stomach still turns
when I remember you're still livin in the city
My stomach still turns when you
pass me on the street
I don't want you to have that
kinda hold of over me so I
turn away, break your gaze and
pray sweet release

I grew up in home on a hill that crumbles
every year bit by bit
everybody laughs at the fool who decided
to build on it

Heroes are a terrible idea
I would of let you you get away with murder
I been running for a while now
but I haven't got all that much further

My stomach still turns
when I remember you're still livin in the city
My stomach still turns when you
pass me on the street
I don't want you to have that
kinda hold of over me so I
turn away, break your gaze and
pray sweet release

I'm not gonna be sorry anymore
I'm not gonna wait for some kind of closure, no no
I'm just gonna take what I need an leave
Walk off in the sunset in six-inch heels and a smile that you can't steal (x3)
