Lyrics

You could never seem to see but I knew, we were never meant to be, and 

You could never be for me what we needed for to last,

Though we knew it couldn't last.

You could never seem to feel what I knew could've been surreal, and

You could never seem to grasp,

'cause I always had to ask, you know I

Shouldn't have to ask.

I shouldn't have to ask what's going on inside,

I shouldn't have to ask what makes you want to hide,

I shouldn't have to ask,

I shouldn't have to ask....

We could fuss and fight for days and you knew what to do to make me stay, and

You thought you had so much control,

But you pushed it all away,

Yeah you threw it all away

Threw it all away...

Threw it all away...

Threw it all away...

I shouldn't have to ask what's going on inside,

I shouldn't have to ask what makes you want to hide,

I shouldn't have to ask to spend some time away,

I shouldn't have to ask what makes you think this way,

I shouldn't have to ask,

I shouldn't have to ask...

Ask is based on every relationship with communication issues... In this particular case, and I would imagine for many, it was hardly malicious.

My partner spent more time and energy trying to take care of me than they spent being there for and with me.  By hiding their problems and only focusing on mine, they created a relationship where neither of us could really trust each other, and where frankly, we didn't know each other.

Conversations turned to fights, and hurtful decisions were made.  In the end, maybe obviously, it didn't work out- we went our separate ways.

I like to think that we have both grown up a lot since then, but I will say, it feels good to sing about something I can look back on knowing how to be better.

I hope that this song makes you feel less alone <3 and if 2018 is anything, it is the year of solidarity and support for one another!  We love you guys, and can't wait to share more with you.
