lyrics

I'd made my peace
With the rose that clouds my fading memory
So I could turn away
Pretend I never knew the shape of yesterday

Now I've grown
Blind to my own pain, but I can feel again
I must
Rewrite history, whitewash everything

Now every dream
Is beautiful agony

Between these yellowed walls
Paper curling in the shadows growing long
So I start sifting through
And every scrap's a finger pointed back at you

I've grown
Blind to my own pain, but I can feel again
I must
Rewrite history, whitewash everything

Now every dream
Is beautiful agony
Yes, every dream
Is beautiful agony

I'm scarred on the surface
But happy in denial
(The memory is sweeter the farther away)
Don't follow me back there
I speak through switchblade smile
(The dream has grown bitter, it darkens the day)

Every dream
Beautiful agony
Yes, every dream
Is beautiful agony

I'm scarred on the surface
But happy in denial
(The memory is sweeter the farther away)
Don't follow me back there
I speak through switchblade smile
(The dream has grown bitter, it darkens the day)
I'm sorry I can't save you
You know I cannot stay
Forgive me my treason
My memory has betrayed
