Phantom Love - Lyrics

Step inside the life of the man weak enough to follow you
Bury all the strife of the heart that you have hollowed through
Bury our love far, far away from this
So you can become one with the walls again
Scream for your father
Go a little farther
Cut a little harder
But our fates are inked in pen

That was then
And this is the end of

This phantom love
Untied and severed
I was never the one
Is this what you call forever
Made me promise
I would never break your heart
How was I to know that's what you wanted from the start?

Step inside the life of the girl that can do no wrong
Her hands clasped 'round the knife she uses to carve her sad songs
Wash your hands 'til the sinks stain red
And I'm outta your head
Just remember what I said
We decided to just ignore
Just can't cut it anymore
Just remember that I loved you more

But that was then
And this is the end of

This phantom love
Untied and severed
I was never the one
Is this what you call forever?
Made me promise
I would never break your heart
How was I to know that's what you wanted from the start?

Outta control, how long you played me, playing a role
I've been doin' this for a living
Two halves don't make a whole that's not a given
Go in twice, you sold two souls of children to the business
Phantom love was always cold before the start and to the finish
Turn from me, so stare and shoot
I've lost my mind, you scared me too
You've crossed that line, whose using who
It's nothing new, make peace, we're fine
I tried, I lied, to keep you mine
That girl I love I just can't find
Trips me up so I can't see if the messed up one is you or me
See what this city has done to us
Dreams torn apart like a blunderbuss
A hundred gusts of west
The wind has spread us thin
Too much within
Just don't discuss
I hold disgust
I know you must
But knife in hand, there's still distrust
I know you thrust
The moment these words are spoken
You can't love, you only love to be broken

This phantom love
Untied and severed
I was never the one
Is this what you call forever?
Made me promise
I would never break your heart
How was I to know that's what you wanted from the start?
