lyrics

The twigs and the rocks they filled my socks
Like the dictating numbers on the dictating clocks
So I cut our story out of paper you taped it on the wall
I was sure you said I love you when you said nothing at all

Why did I have to be so naïve?
To think that people like you could love people like me
In the hidden hollows how could I forget
The way your eyes looked like two lit cigarettes

Our typewriter teeth ticked in the February air
When you turned your head and tried not to care
I think you should’ve told me that we were no good
Just make believe that I believed we somehow could
In all your lofty letters I was prone to believe
When you said I changed you what else could it mean

Hold your breath walk backwards
Try to take it all back
You were never in my stomach
Or the stitches in my head
