lyrics

you taught me so much you taught me to live
you taught me to love and you taught me to give
you taught me to think and you taught me to breathe
you taught me to leave behind what i didn't need
i didn't see it back then but now i know what you mean
and i barely fit in to the radical scene
because i say what i think and i think what i feel
i won't always tell people what they want to hear

i'll be sincere, because of you i got over the fear
that appears when you always disagree with your peers
it's weird, it took years it took tears

and sometimes i still miss you til this day
i can't believe things had to end that way
and now i can't trust and i can't get close
i won't let people within arms distance at most
comatose, i feel like we were so close
to where we wanted to be, where we wanted to go
we both tried to pretend that it wasn't the end
in the end it didn't matter everything was a ghost

tell me what does it mean when you realize your dream
was only a dream it was only a dream
when you used to believe in love and fight everything
tell me what does it mean when you no longer believe
tell me what does it mean when you realize your dream
was only a dream it was only a dream
when all you got is a scene and not a community
and all the work you put in has come apart at the seems.
