Oh Elise, it doesn't matter what you say
I just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out every way to smile
Forget and make believe we never needed
Anymore than this, anymore than this

Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you do
I know I'll never really get inside of you
To make your eyes catch fire the way they should
The way the blue could pull me in
If they only would, if they only would
At least I'd lose this sense of sensing
Something else that hides away

From me and you they're worlds to part
With aching looks and breaking hearts
And all the prayers your hands can make
Oh, I just take as much as you can throw

And then throw it all away, oh I throw it all away
Like throwing faces at the sky
Like throwing arms 'round yesterday
I stood and stared wide eyed in front of you
And the face I saw looked back the way I wanted to
But I just can't hold my tears away the way you do

Elise, believe I never wanted this
I thought this time I'd keep all of my promises
I thought you were the girl I always dreamed about
But I let the dream go and the promises broke
And the make believe ran out

So Elise, it doesn't matter what you say
I just can't stay here every yesterday
Like keep on acting out the same
The way we act out every way to smile
Forget and make believe we never needed
Any more than this, any more than this

And every time I try to pick it up like falling sand
As fast as I pick it up, it runs away through my clutching hands
But there's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else I can really do
There's nothing else I can really do at all
