A million reasons why I love you
A million reasons why I don't
A million reasons I should stay here
And a million reasons why I won't

A million little complications
A million small regrets
A million validations
A million things I want to forget

It's weighing on me now
It seems like that forever is a concept that will never be realized
I know you can shine without me
I never should have tried to illuminate your heart

It's better this way
Cause we both know that the only time
That this has not been contentious
Was the first time that our eyes met
Right before we said hello
