Loans On Love

I told you once, told you twice 
But you chose not to take advice from me 
Told you three times, thought you'd learn 
You can't change the direction that we turn 
By running in place, the world can't keep pace 
You lean to speak but hesitate, the time wasn't right 

It's hard to see you in any other light 
Than the one that hangs above your bed 
And although this diner may be brighter 
Makes it easier to hide behind your 
Sense of righteous sympathy 

Sarcasm seemed like your domain 
With each joke your interest wains for me 
The mask you have looks awful tight 
Trick is that you wear it right 
I can see your hair, tells me that you're under there 
Try to say your face is bare but I swear I see string 

It's hard to see you in any other life 
Than the one I pictured in my head 
Though I still witness it in images and quoted lines 
Feels empty when it isn't you and me 

But I keep holding on 
Waiting by my phone 
Taking loans on love when its overdrawn 
And yeah I know you're gone 
Doesn't mean I've figured out how to be alone
