yesterday i stumbled upon this song while watching some twitch stream

I found it to have quite an nice atmosphere.
Still i somehow think i am not sure i get the meaning of the lyrics right.

The official word is that the song is about the process of a relationship falling apart.
I'm not gonna try and make it even
You're way ahead by now
I'm not gonna try and make it all even
Even though I know how

First part i think is about 2 people in a relationship where one of them has done some things that does seperate both in a very harsh way.
One possible and obvious option is that one of the two has cheated on the other several times while the other has stayed faithful.

This would fit perfectly since the only way to make them even again would be by person B starting to cheat, too
but B realizes that he was cheated so often that its a long way to goo till they would be even again.
and he is not willing to do it.

And everyone thinks I dodged a bullet
But I think I shot the gun
And everyone thinks I dodged a bullet
But I think I shot the gun


I guess its about how people from the outside see them as a couple.
Everyone thinks they have overcome a crisis and are in the process of fixing stuff to get along well again . (Dodged the bullet)
But he thinks he did finally decide to quit for real. (Has not done it yet but decided to do so)

I'm not gonna tell my new friends about you
No, I'm gonna let that slide
I'm gonna be lazy when I write about you
Even though it takes all my might

Person B is starting a process of seperation
He will try to cut out Person A of his daily life bit by bit.
Allthough it obviously will be hard

I'm gonna get back to believing
It's been a long, long time now
I'm gonna get up and make it look easy
Even though I don't know how


Last part is about him trying to get his shit together and "attacking" life again
Getting confidence in himself back after getting hurt and lost in the relationship for a long time
He is motivating himself to get up and make it look easy
And of course right now while he is down ...the vision of his happy self confident future him is just a picture he likes to draw .
He is not yet knowing how it will work out.

Did i get this right ?
Somehow makes sense
but i am obviously not a native speaker so i might have gotten some things wrong

Don't know the song, haven't read the lyrics, but this site is generally useful for deciphering song meanings:

The way the song is seen there is way more linked to the songwriters personal life and way less as a general problem of a relationship.

Its also an option that makes sense.

2 people split up and one is making a drama involving other people around them while the other one has choosen to keep quiet and slowly erase memory of the other person .
peoples opinion is therefore based on that one person making the drama...while he knows /thinks its different.

I think "dodged a bullet" in relationships usually mean breaking up with somebody who would have been very bad for you, so I think he is saying that his friends tell him that he is lucky but he feels like he is the one who should be dodged
