lyrics

In the morning I hope your names on my cell phone, a post on Instagram a tweet from you nightstand to remind me why I can't sleep. To a state where you came from, Minnesota and the battle scars. Taken by anxiety your the queen trapped here by everything. I've been wrong and I've been right, said things at the worst of times. Better yet I've found my sense of taking for granted all of this bullshit.

You said I was the best thing that happened to you, but I don't know if you're sober enough to be saying that. If you haven't figured out by now, to be lonely is better than to be with you.

Oh it's such a shame that I built this house for you, a house that I never stepped foot in before. Surrounded by steal hearts and liquid veins. Stolen by sharp wit and empty fame.
I could have felt like this without you.

You said I was the best thing that happened to you, but I don't know if you're sober enough to be saying that. If you haven't figured out by now, to be lonely is better than to be with you.

I'm slowly looking for a better place.
One where you aren't on my mind.
Now I'm just angry and I can't sleep.
I can't figure you out between this simple bliss and other ways but maybe I lied.
You said that I was the best thing.
(I'm living slowly.)
I never left a mess behind, but I left a mess of you.
