Silverstein – Aquamarine lyrics

Games we used to play,
Could take the pain away. [Pre-Chorus]
You know you could,
I wish you would. I’m driving past the gruesome scene,
I’ll never forget this. I think of the place where you fooled me,
Beside the tarmac you never came clean. Things you used to say,
Could take the pain away. Did you think next April,
You’d be even further away. Things you used to say,
Could take the pain away. [Hook]
Same bed, we take no precautions,
Emotions, regrets and revenge. Things you used to say,
Could take the pain away. [Intro]
A ring in a box but not your dream,
It’s not a diamond, it’s aquamarine. You’ll never find your place of peace,
You’ll always regret this. The same car, same songs, same motions,
We hold hands, relive how we met,
But no talk, no reconciliation,
This train’s already left! [Verse 1]
I told you I wished that I was dead,
My eyes wouldn’t open up again. And even six years later,
The dialogue, it stays the same. [Pre-Chorus]
You know you could,
(You know you could)
I wish you would. Did you keep him faithful,
How many nights did you lay awake? [Verse 2]
You packed your shit and went ahead,
My mind and my soul were left for dead,
I can’t believe you weren’t joking. [Bridge]
A ring in a box but not from me,
It’s still no diamond, it’s aquamarine. Games we used to play,
Could take the pain away. [Outro]
Fall on your knees and remove the sorrow,
Return the piece of my heart you borrowed. You’re 2000 miles away,
Betrayers never change. Sweat rolls down my face,
My bloody knuckles mark the stains,
My throat is closing up, I’m choking. But now you’re gone and we’re falling faster,
We’re forgetting things that we used to master. [Chorus]
Fall on your knees and remove the sorrow,
Return the piece of my heart you borrowed. Your shocking look of self defeat,
So desperate. Games we used to play,
Could take the pain away. Salt and lime I taste,
The sickest thoughts I can’t erase. But now you’re gone and we’re falling faster,
We’re forgetting things that we used to master. (I wish you…)
[Chorus]
Fall on your knees and remove the sorrow,
Return the piece of my heart you borrowed. I can’t believe I wasn’t joking. These images won’t stop provoking. But now you’re gone and we’re falling faster,
We’re forgetting things that we used to master. The last step in killing the karma,
It makes sense from where we’ve been.
