Take One Down

Take One Down

1 min 155 1 min 155

This ring melting in my hand like a candlewick

Drowning the memories that left me sick 

Trading smiles for sighs 

While I watch you with the other guy


Another reason for me to raise another glass high

To the wasted times and wasted nights 

In the corner of this deserted place

I’m an island of despair and better days


Where empty promises came from shared lips

And diamond eyes told tales of another life

Fake tears fall like the rain we danced in on our first date

Where you whispered that this meant forever and always

Ironically I sink here and wash away
