i saw you through rose-tinted glasses

This song sampled “forever//aj” by nshvll. Initially, I heard their song and fell in love with it instantly, and with them, we made this. For me, this song is about getting used to the presence of someone or something you know is harmful to you and how you get so accustomed to it being a part of your life that when it goes, you oddly miss it and the sudden life change throws you off, despite it being a good change for you.

Unfortunately, life does not always pan out the way we want it to, and there’s only so much help someone can have before you have to give up for your own sake.


[Verse 1]
I watched us fall
I lost your hand
I lost your love

I’m still here
On my own
Do you hear me?

I don’t know
What to say

I don’t know
Where I belong

[Verse 2]
I wish you were the way
That I saw you
Such a perfect person

I don’t know what happened
Or why you’re so distant
I’ll never know

We once were so close
I was what made you feel whole

[Verse 3]
Was I mislead
By your disguise
Saying you cared

I took shelter
In your lies
Now I’m left scared

[Verse 4]
Like it was nothing
You’ve moved on
Bruising my soul

When you need someone
You come running back
Because you know

We once were so close
I was what made you feel whole
