lyrics

When we said our goodbyes, I heard the silence start to ring.
When we said our goodbyes, I felt my cheek begin to sting
I was bracing for the blow, but it hit me hard.
Adrenaline was pumping, and it hit me hard.

Don't worry, I still sing.
My chest is tight but I can still breathe.
Go on, I'll be just fine.
I may bruise easy, but we didn't break a thing.

You left just in time, for my heart to still beat on it's own.
You left just in time, for the ache to stay dull in my bones.
I was bracing for the blow, but it hit me hard.
Adrenaline was pumping and it hit me hard.

The room stopped spinning.
I'm still standing now.
I'm almost steady now, steady now.
