lyrics

you didn't remember my birthday,
or at least you didn't call.
cause that would be easy,
not much mystery at all.
but then, that autumn night,
you dropped me a line
just to tell me, tell me i was on your mind.

what were you thinking?
i ask my self the same.
what was i thinking?
it's not the time to blame.
not me or you for things we've both been through.
cause i've learned now
that if it's broken, i should replace it,
and if it's not broken yet,
i've gotta try, i've gotta try my best not to break it.

i try to live in the moment,
but i can't forget the past.
just have to learn from it.
these feelings never last.
not in real-time or in memories,
they fade and fade away
as time gives us our character,
as we progress with age.

what were you thinking?
i ask myself the same.
what was i thinking?
you may have never changed
from the person i knew i knew,
but i've learned now
that if it's broken, i should replace it,
and if it's not broken yet,
i've gotta try,
i've gotta try my best not to break it.

and it turns out money makes the fountain of youth,
while music makes a mountain of truth,
and faith in friendship loses luster as hearts grow harder still
i never was one to trust, but your patience broke my will
and even though it pains me to admit i know you're right
it's a life-long tunnel
til we finally, finally, finally reach the light!

who knows what we're thinking?
they don't even know our names!
you and me with arms linking,
and who cares who's to blame?
cause we've learned now,
that if it's broken, we should replace it,
and if it's not broken yet,
we've gotta try, we've gotta try our best not to break it
we've gotta hold our breath, and try our best not to break it!
