HOW DID THIS HAPPEN
Words & Music by Amber Rubarth (c) 2011 Inspiraled Music (ASCAP)

How did this happen again? When did the room start to spin out of focus and crash in the breezes. I thought we’d figured it out, thought our hearts finally found one love that trumped every reason.

But bricks came piling up and they blocked out the sun, stopped our arms from holding each other. The walls we built to protect locked us in here instead, in the darkness lonely and hungered, both back to a life all alone.

I want to get out. I want to get out. So I gotta give in. I gotta give in. I gotta give in.
I want to get out. I want to get out. So I gotta give in now. Now I gotta give in. I gotta give in.

How did this happen again? Why did I fight to the end in a battle I didn’t believe in? I thought we’d figured it out, thought our hearts finally found one love that trumped every reason.
One love that trumped every reason.
One love that trumped every reason to go.
One love that trumped every reason to go back to a life all alone.
