Verse 1

So you think it's too premature.

You have doubts, you're not sure.

And here I was speeding; I'd be looking at furniture,

And thinking wow, it'd fit our condo- yeah, I thought way too far.

Pre-chorus

Yeah I had this coming, I deserve this.

I'm so unsteady, how could I expect you to make a promise?

Chorus

And now I know you won't be kneeling on one knee,

Saying those magical words to me.

And I throw away the stone

That I'd picked out on my own.

And the sound of it hitting the ground echoes

Through the hollow chambers of my heart.

I built this dream of a future together and now

I'm tearing it down myself part by part.

There's a different future now that I can see.

One where you're not kneeling on one knee.

Verse 2

You say it'll lift all the pressure.

Man I'm so damn jealous of her!

You're hesitant about us, but you had once proposed her.

So is it because you're afraid? Is it because of some kind of old scar?

Pre-chorus

Yeah I had this coming, I deserve this.

I'm so unsteady, how could I expect you to make a promise?

Chorus

And now I know you won't be kneeling on one knee,

Saying those magical words to me.

And I throw away the stone

That I'd picked out on my own.

And the sound of it hitting the ground echoes

Through the hollow chambers of my heart.

I built this dream of a future together and now

I'm tearing it down myself part by part.

There's a different future now that I can see.

One where you're not kneeling on one knee.

Bridge

Paintings burned, now how do I get rid of the ash?

I don't want a single sign of the dreams that I threw into trash.

You take all the time you need,

Baby I'll be right here waiting for you.

Dreams will haunt me in my dreams,

Cause when I'd wake up, I'd know, they'd probably never come true.

Pre-chorus

Yeah I had this coming, I deserve this.

I'm so unsteady, how could I expect you to make a promise?

Chorus

And now I know you won't be kneeling on one knee,

Saying those magical words to me.

And I throw away the stone

That I'd picked out on my own.

And the sound of it hitting the ground echoes

Through the hollow chambers of my heart.

I built this dream of a future together and now

I'm tearing it down myself part by part.

There's a different future now that I can see.

One where you're not kneeling on one knee.
