lyrics

it was cold outside
i shouldn't have gone but i did and i
wanted to find you
and bring you inside

i called your name
but you didn't respond so i shouted and
it didn't matter, my voice was
lost in the night

i tried to go back
thinking bout choices, decisions, and
all the misshapen steps i had taken
to end up here

and my feet felt heavy then
but they feel heavier now
they feel heavier now

i sat in the snow
hoping and waiting for something like
a light or a glimmering shimmer i
didn't know

my heart was a mess
a cinderblock frozen and breaking
full of love, full of poison and venom i
gave it to you

i'd take it all back
would that i could but i can't and now
there's blood in between all the messes i
didn't say

and my feet felt heavy then
but they feel heavier now
they feel heavier now
and my blood bled black then
but it bleeds redder now
it bleeds better now

i didn't find your ghost out there
you didn't haunt the cold night air
but i just couldn't leave

and my heart was heavy then
you were weighing me down
you were weighing me down
and tears fell half frozen
you were dragging them down
you were dragging them down
and i tumbled gently
you were laying me down
you were laying me down
