lyrics

She breathed around a heartbeat
As he stepped down from the train
Though their eyes still held affection
Their kisses were restrained
Her mind it flooded backwards
To how she’d watched him walk away
When he took away tomorrow
And only left her with today

She wasn’t looking for an answer
She wasn’t needing to be heard
She wasn’t looking for another chance
To make him only hers
She wasn’t waiting for to hear him
Say the words he’d never say
Of how he took away tomorrow
And only left her with today

He’d been aching for adventure
She’d been aching deep within
He’d been hoping for postponement
She’d been needing to begin
Though nothing’s ever black and white
Only shades of grey
He took away tomorrow
And only left her with today

He wasn’t looking for forgiveness:
There was never any blame
But he took away tomorrow
And only left her with today
