about

"maybe it’s time for us to go
and find ourselves first

before we so eagerly seek each other

(6/6)"

lyrics

Sweetheart,
He called me sweetheart
And once upon a time,
I called that love

And he was smart,
He feigned a sweet heart,
And he'd call me names
When I would call his bluff

And he would laugh a bit too loudly
When I’d fall flat on my face
Before he'd help me up
And say, "I’m sorry, sweetheart"

It was an art,
The way he'd tear me apart,
And force me to atone
For all his sins

And then he'd say the meanest nothings
In the sweetest voice,
Yes, he'd smile
And say that everything was fine

But then he smiled a bit too proudly
When the world had put me down
Before he pats my back
And said, "I’m sorry"

And I said,
"I’m tired of pretending
That a man who clearly hates me
To validate me
And tell me that I’m whole."

I said,
"I won't be spending one more day
In the shadow of your pain.
It's time for you to grow,
And it's time for me to go."

Apologies can only get you so far
Before the person that you're sorry for
Becomes the person that you are
"sweetheart"

I'm not your sweetheart
And I’m not an angel
Sent from up above

I'm just smart
And I make beautiful art
And honestly
That should be enough
If it's not, then tough

I'm tired of pretending
That a man who clearly hates me
Can validate me
And tell me that I’m whole.

I won't be spending one more day
In the shadow of your pain.
It's time for you to grow,
And it's time for me to go
Sweetheart
