lyrics

The thought of you is soft now, just a whisper late at night
you used to come in strong back when all we did was fight
I'm so glad you made me stand up for myself when you weren't right
I stand taller knowing you'd never fit into my life

Chorus
I'm the one to believe what the movies tell me
Hold a funeral for love like your world is ending
Cut and bleeding ties to the one you were depending on
Such an elaborate lie
It really just takes time

Careful architecture to build memories that last
But our foundation wasn't strong, and the breakdown wasn't fast
This house we'd tried to build became a useless, ugly mass
Could never be a home for us, but I couldn't see that

Chorus
I'm the one to believe what the movies tell me
Hold a funeral for love like your world is ending
Cut and bleeding ties to the one you were depending on
Such an elaborate lie
It really just takes time

And if time is all it takes
to fill in holes and heal these aches
we could raise the stakes
imagine who might come along to fix my heartbreak

Chorus
I'm the one to believe what the movies tell me
Hold a funeral for love like your world is ending
Cut and bleeding ties to the one you were depending on
Such an elaborate lie
What an elaborate lie
It really just takes time
And I'm amazed to say this but I think
I really will be fine
