lyrics

The opposite of love ain't hate, it's indifference
I used to love you but know I just don't care
I don't think of you that much and I'm not the least bit bitter
So why am I sitting here, thinking,
Wishing you were here

Love is a beautiful form of surrender
We surrender ourselves to crippling hurt
But baby we don’t have to wave that white flag yet
Just stay with me in the trenches for one more night

Cause I've been captured by the enemy of your beauty
But I escaped, now I know you're a prisoner yourself
It's so quiet in our room I can hear the passage of time
It's so quiet I can hear your heart beating next to mine.

There’s no point in leaving, but I got no reason to stay
I just keep reaching out and you, you keep pulling away
I was caught crossing the barbed wire fence of what used to be
Come throw down your guns and get tangled up with me

Cause I've been captured by the enemy of your beauty
But I escaped, now I know you're a prisoner yourself
It's so quiet in our room I can hear the passage of time
It's so quiet I can hear the memory of your heart beating next to mine.
