04. The Curse of Perfect Days

We Do What We Want
by Emery



 

And you knew exactly when
You gave your heart and all of it
Without a thought of what you meant
You knew you couldnít live without this

So make your excuses now
That time has stolen all that youíve earned
Make your excuses now
That time has stolen her
Time has stolen her

Tell me that Iím a fool
That Iíve exaggerated, the situation
Cause Iíve never been scared like this
Of losing more than I have to give

Itís so unfair I believed I could handle this
I swore I could fix everything
But I told myself lies all these years
I told myself lies all of these years

The fear that moves in and stays here
The words that replay in your ears
The grip that you held has weakened
Was the life that was yours forsaken

But I canít take my eyes off of you

And we were still so cool
Our bodies smooth and young
The dreams of getting older
Were never supposed to come
The curse of perfect days
You forget just what youíve made
And you find yourself just praying
There is something more than this life
Something more than this life

We wait for the doctors to prescribe their medicines
And hold their bad news
As if later it will make more sense
but Iíve never been scared like this
just waiting for my strength to give
But this is the rock I broke myself against

We believed weíd have our way
And we did, and we did
The memories we have made
Everyday was the best day of my life
I could never repay what I owe
Or replace the book we wrote
And even though I read the ending before the start
I would have never changed a single part


Tell me Iím a fool, tell me Iím just scared
Say Iím such a drama queen itís not even fair
And let me see your eyes
The love thatís right behind
And Iíll promise you that it will never die
It will never die

And we were still so cool
Our bodies smooth and young
The dreams of getting older
Were never supposed to come
The curse of perfect days
You forget just what youíve made
And you find yourself just praying
There is something more than this life
I want so much more than this life
