lyrics

Seems it was Summer not long before
Then it was all brand new, now the days are few

I have been practicing some last words
Practicing every day, in a silent way
Still maybe you've heard

Let's place them on a dresser
Or a nightstand or wherever shows I knew you
A picture frame, the gift you made
Your necklace radiates nostalgic blue

But I don't wanna be the last one left hoping to hear you call

It's kind of comforting in a sense
Devoting my very best, to a timeline kept
Above us as we lay
Cause endings aren't easy at all to choose
The pitfalls, the win and lose
And thoughts to hold onto
Though I'll push them away

'Cause I don't wanna be the last one left hoping to hear you call
I don't wanna be the last one left hoping to hear you call
No I don't wanna be the last one left hoping to hear you call my name

Seems it was Summer not long before
Now we will follow through on what we've got to do
Did you have something to say?
Some days we'll forget and somedays we'll hurt
I'll prepare myself for the worst, I used to put you first
Now I'll put you away

Still let's place them on a dresser
Or a nightstand or wherever shows I knew you
A picture frame, the gift you made
Your necklace radiates nostalgic blue

But I don't wanna be the last one left hoping to hear you call
I don't wanna be the last one left hoping to hear you call
No I don't wanna be the last one left hoping to hear you call my name
