Persona

What would it take

For us to stay in love

Darling I’d pay

If that could be enough

When you walk away

You take my heart with ya

Don’t throw it away

‘Cause I’ve got that covered, yeah

 

But every time that I talk to you

Am I watching you fade away

Or is it just that same thing I do

Where I miss you ‘till you’re in my space

 

Baby, I’m sorry

Shouldn’t have taken you up

What you said last summer

How you fell in love with the idea of me

Usually it’d kill me

Seeing you run

But lately I don’t even know ya

It feels like you’ve been a persona

Of who you wanna be

 

Why do I change when I get comfortable

I’ll keep up the pace

So I don’t have to know

If I cause you pain my darling

It hurts me ten-fold

I’m the man on your case

But I’m lost on the road

 

Baby, I’m sorry

Shouldn’t have taken you up

What you said last summer

How you fell in love with the idea of me

Usually it’d kill me

Seeing you run

But lately I don’t even know ya

It feels like you’ve been a persona

Of who you want to be
