I saw it all when I fumbled the other day You saw my knees as they crumbled, cracked, and swayed If it seems like this is what that feels like There’s no one left to blame I saw it all when I fumbled the other day

Fell onto the floor Slipped into me And needed some more Harder to breathe You opened the door Scents fell gently Enough to ignore Palatably Tried to feel my heart But it was only a murmur Tried to play the part That’s why I’m calling a burner Still insecure You bought me a coffee Hard to be sure Tried to feel my heart But it was only a murmur Tried to play the part

I Wonder? 03:08
When I heard the words they said, it cut right through me Packed my bags for a new city My mind was spent; I missed a nail My time was spent; I missed your email I wonder why my friends always break up with me? I wonder why my friends all break up with me? Then I heard the words she said I couldn’t avoid it I’m so vain I thought they were about me I wonder why my friends all break up with me? I wonder why my friends always break up with me? I wonder why my friends all broke up with me? But now I’m crying And I’m lying here alone In the same spot where you left me there that night And I’m crying, but you’ll never see me crying No, you’ll never see me shed a tear about some fucking guy And I’m sorry, because I know that I’m the problem And I thought that if I kissed him You would want me again that night And I missed you And I never would have blamed you If you’d gone ahead and left me I would never wonder why

I meant to call you on Friday I meant to see you before you went away I didn’t think that I could get on the floor like this. I should have called you on Sunday I wouldn’t leave you a voicemail anyway I didn’t think that I could get on the floor like this.

You tried it on because they said it would fit But they never quite helped you out of it The muscles tighten like you’re clenching a fist But there’s nothing past your shaking wrist The cigarette goes out the moment it’s lit But you still impress with your tired wit Always trying but you have to submit Then a reach in the back to grab a nip You only took it to counterfeit You don’t want to seem like a hypocrite Another turn on the screw that’s stripped And the final gasp of the cracking whip You always seem to avoid the trip With a dying grasp on the vein you’d slit So many packages you said you’d ship With another clap on the bruise on your hip A man who probably could drink a fifth As I walk back toward your original myth A great view from the top of the cliff But your back is too sore and your legs are too stiff Your eyes glisten like they’re covered in spit And the scars still fade where your lip was split Another swing and the teeth all chip Pass another long line that you tried to skip You threw the ball to try to get the assist But he shot too far and he fucking missed A well-intentioned attempt to sit But you’re always caught underneath it

In the small familiar bedroom The night was bathing you softly I looked out through the open door And then you took me so gently I never forgot that night I always wanted to tell you Do you regret that night? I always wanted to ask you Twenty years pass by And now I wrote this song for you Still lying awake at night I always wanted to tell you Forever in my mind I always wanted to tell you

I can’t forget your voice on the phone We moved so fast to retrieve you And swiftly passed through the hospital doors I wish we could have stayed with you And now the years have passed And I wonder about your life And how I wish that I knew myself better I could have known what it felt likeI click your picture and I see your face It’s still so familiar to me And how I wish that I knew you better I hope that you’d still call me
