It's better the icicle melts
It's better than this
It's better they love what they have
And not what they miss

Flowers fade
Brighter than lights on your shoes
This goodbye
Was never intended for you

It's colder here inside than out
The icicle's thinned
But the harder I try to stay out
The more I gave in

Flowers fade
Brighter than light on your skin
This goodbye
Was only intended for him

Keep running around
Inside your roses
Is that what he said
I was late
Not gone, just wrong
Is that where he told you I was

It's better to leave at the door
Before he arrives
But I told you plenty before
You'll always be mine

Flowers fade
Brighter than light in our past
This goodbye
Was never intended to last

This goodbye
Was never intended for you
