lyrics

Do you remember the moment you fell out of love?
One morning in Virginia with the sky white above,
Something in the smell of the frost
made you feel you'd gotten lost
made you think,
This is it, this is it.

You waited so long to stop feeling
suffocated,
but you left it unstated,
and now you're looking back
on the life that you thought you'd have
and nothing has ever seemed so far away
You knew
what this was coming to
Who could blame you for words you had to say?

Do you remember the moment you left me behind?
You told me not to follow you, you said it was time.
What could I do but watch you go,
just wishing I could say,
"no"?

I can't get rid of that moment
It stares out from the shelf.
Me, I'm writing stupid love songs
and I'm hating myself.
And all the small, insidious things
the shower curtain's stained rings
the kettle
how it sings,
how it sings.

I find myself still waiting
slowly asphyxiating
something in this house is fading

Now I'm looking back
on the life that I thought we'd have
and nothing has ever seemed so far away
I try
so goddamn hard these days
not to blame you for words
that you had to say,
words you had to say.
