we kissed in the kitchen and made love in your bed,
over and over again.
we cried in the kitchen and slept in our bed, so separate.

you leave me out of your mess.
you were suffering too much,
you leave me out of your mess.
so we can go on,
we can move on,
so we can go on.

we eat in our kitchens and sleep in our beds.
we're so nice on the phone and so cruel in our heads.
but we can go on.
we can go far.
we can move on.
and we can feel so, so small.

    General CommentI can relate to this so much. I love the imagery described. The creativity that went into writing a song that begins with the nostalgia in a past relationship and the reflective discription explaining how life is now, without that significant other to depend on.

    Also, the materialistic metaphors used to share the differences, using a kicthen to now eat in and a bed to sleep in (when in fact it wasn't always that way).


    Case and point - We are all creatures of habit.
