Every day I withdraw a little more
Every day I pull further away
Every day I give you a little less
Because I'm leaving and you can't follow

My heart has packed its bags
My brain is shutting down
I try not to care about what's behind me
I don't want to imagine your disappointment

In me...

It's all become too much to bear
Too lonely, too hard, too wretched
Too many fears, too little hope
I can't fight it anymore

It's like watching a plane take off
For some great place I was supposed to go to
But I talked myself out of it, making excuses
And now I regret my bad choices

I keep saying now's the time to give up...

But is it?
