Portrait Of An Apology Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Look what I've done, this picture I've painted
It looks like my heart or what still remains
Convinced of the weight
Your interpretations are not what I see, I wish they could be

And I remember it much redder
And I remember it much brighter

Can you stay for a while?
Try to imagine this
Could you be for a while?
I can't remember it
Could you fall for a while?
Yes, I can't escape from this

Try to explain the way that the frame
Doesn't quite fit the image or surround the edge
It stands on display and what do you see?
Behold all the new gray, what's become of the old me

'Cause I remember it much redder
And I remember it much brighter

Can you stay for a while?
Try to imagine this
Could you be for a while?
Yes, I can't remember it
Could you fall for a while?
Yes, I can't escape from this
Can you stay for a while?

Calling, crying
For a while
Ashamed, what I am not
For a while
Really failing, falling
For a while
Into this cage and I can't escape
For a while
No I can't escape
For a while
No I can't

So look what I've done, the picture I've painted
Doesn't quite fit or surround the edge
But I remember it much redder

Try to imagine this
Could you be for a while?
Yes, I can't remember it
Could you fall for a while?
I can't escape from this
Can you stay for a while?
I can't escape
Could you be for a while?

For a while
For a while
For a while
I can't and I can't

Can you stay for a while?
Could you be for a while?
Could you fall for a while?

I can't, I can't escape
Can you stay for a while?
Could you be for a while?
Could you fall for a while?
Can you be?
Could you stay?
