lyrics

i know we promised that we’d keep in touch,
but if we keep ourselves in this water our bones will start to rust
i remember the days when we’d walk down sunburst st
where we carved our date in the concrete right below our feet
and we would talk about the pointless shit that happened throughout our day
now you won’t even call or fucking text me to wish me a happy birthday
and i could write a thousand songs about how lovely i thought you were
but this one’s about how it feels like to be left in the dirt

‘cause you’re the subject in every line i wrote and i wrote far too much
these lines are digging into my skin and your thoughts another open cut
so let me heal and you’ll just turn away and even if i beg to stay
you’re just another shade of gray and i hope it’ll be better off this way

i’m trying to stop the door from closing with my feet
and it’s crushing my toes, you’re crushing my hope
i don’t know my worth, but i know i’m not the worst
but you said i was, so then what are you?

‘cause you’re the subject in every line i wrote and i wrote far too much
these lines are digging into my skin and your thoughts another open cut
so let me heal and you’ll just turn away and even if i beg to stay
you’re just another shade of gray and i hope it’ll be better off this way

things don’t last
the road beneath my feet it stays cracked and laughs
at the steps i took towards your apartment
now i see, those two years didn’t mean anything to anyone but me
