The Older I Get

The walls between
You and I
Always pushing us apart
Nothing left but scars fight after fight

The space between
Our calm and rage
Started growing shorter
Disappearing slowly day after day
 
Pre-Chorus:
I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
You were waiting for me too
And it makes me wonder
 
Chorus:
The older I get
Will I get over it
It’s been way too long for the times we missed
I didn’t know then it would hurt like this but I think
The older I get
Maybe I’ll get over it
It’s been way too long for the times we missed
I can’t believe it still hurts like this
 
The time between
Those cutting words
Built up our defenses never made no sense it just made me hurt
Do you believe
That time heals all wounds
It started getting better but it’s easy not to fight when I’m not with you
 
(Pre-Chorus)
 
(Chorus)

What was I waiting for
I should've taken less and given you more
I should've weathered the storm
I need to say so bad
What were you waiting for
This could have been the best we ever had
 
(Chorus)

I'm just getting older
I'm not getting over you I'm trying to
I wish it didn't hurt like this
It's been way too long for the times we missed
I can't believe it still hurts like this
