compulsively looking for something
on a whim
gripping on a limb
looking for the impossible
it's 11:17 and i'm going nowhere fast
you no longer share my point of view
i'm slowly starting to vanish in the night's soft summer breeze
my hands are at my head
i'm thinking
"oh god please get me through this one tonight"
you say "i'll be gone until august
goodbye joey, here's to lost love."
well august isn't too far away
but i doubt i'll see you then
i've got no argument
this distance takes away my chances for victory
so i swear i'll never do it again
you were my everything
now i'm barely your something
chalk it up to the same mistakes
and brand new regrets
that work (so so so well) for the both of us

time flies when you're yelling for so long
it's 8 am
and i don't know where this went
all i see is (black) circles
under your eyes

sinking fast and nowhere to go
how will i go on from here?
sinking fast and nowhere to go
drowning further and further away
...from you...
i've never felt so alone
all i want is for your hands to notice me
so fatigued
driving back home
i miss your home
i know i am forever without what you were
to me

it's all so far
just like you (two days away)
the phone no longer rings
my heart only sings
a song of your beauty
a song of pain
it's two days later and nothing has changed (it's not better)
my room is freezing
balled up in blanket
i don't plan on leaving anytime soon
i went to the store
six hours before
everything reminded me of you (the cold drinks and the numb fruits)
plummeting in the depths of my mind
i'm going insane
breaking down
so tired... of falling... falling for you.
