Always Remembered As

lyrics

Tell me, what would you think if I just stopped to say,
"I wish I could rewrite this character I play"
Because I've lost all the things that would have kept me sane
I traded my insides to avert all this pain

That's the point when you speak, you'll stay calm as you state,
"This was never your part, you've been stuck in back-stage"
Or maybe you'd just agree, remark,
"It's such a shame, you traded your best friends for the lead role again"

I'm placing myself on walls, and I'm putting myself at fault
If you knew me by name, you'd know I've never been myself at all
I've become a fixture--a rose-red mirror
It's become clear that I can't stay here anymore

In between these days I've spent have been the dreams I can't forget
After these years I can't remember all the times I'm forced to let you go
You should know, I've come so close -- but it doesn't make a difference

You know I tried my best to forget all I've witnessed
I know you, you wouldn't let me stray
And I accept the fact that I can't take back anything I say

In between these days I've spent have been the dreams I can't forget
After these years I can't remember all the times I'm forced to let you go
You should know, I've come so close to throwing it all away

Maybe I'll do that someday, but until then I'm forced to stay
