Verse 1

We never talk about it, but it'd be so much easier if we did.

Keep it in your chest for years, you'll find it hard to breathe.

And you don't know that I know, but I do.

And I'm finding it hard to breathe these days too.

Pre-chorus

Subtle hints, aimed at them,

No details, never take names,

But I can tell you're talking about it

By the way your body languages change so fast.

And there comes the blast from the past.

Chorus

In a second, the air grows tense, no one says a word,

We pretend we don't know, silently hold back our sighs.

And the only lucky one who really doesn't know smiles on.

Sometimes it's best not knowing and living in a sweet lie.

Verse 2

The one time you told me, I've never seen your cry like that.

And I felt like I fell down six feet under the ground where I sat.

I'm helpless, can't change the past, the future,

Cause they don't know I know, and I can't get to her.

Pre-chorus

Subtle hints, aimed at them,

No details, never take names,

But I can tell you're talking about it

By the way your body languages change so fast.

And there comes the blast from the past.

Chorus

In a second, the air grows tense, no one says a word,

We pretend we don't know, silently hold back our sighs.

And the only lucky one who really doesn't know smiles on.

Sometimes it's best not knowing and living in a sweet lie.

Bridge

If we could cut the pretense,

If I could scream at him,

Tell him I know,

Tell him he did her wrong,

It's gone on way too long,

They've all suffered silently,

But unlike them I'm strong.

And this has to stop now.

Or I'll let the ball drop now.

I'll tell everyone, I swear.

If she wasn't shielding you,

I totally would have done it by now.

Pre-chorus

Subtle hints, aimed at them,

No details, never take names,

But I can tell you're talking about it

By the way your body languages change so fast.

And there comes the blast from the past.

Chorus

In a second, the air grows tense, no one says a word,

We pretend we don't know, silently hold back our sighs.

And the only lucky one who really doesn't know smiles on.

Sometimes it's best not knowing and living in a sweet lie.

Outro

Blast from the past,

And the dark spell it casts

On everyone in the room,

The air changes, all I feel is gloom.

He's left us all waiting for doom.
