cigarettes stained coffee cups
and lipstick that you never wear
you say you need a change of something
but you haven't figured it out
yet this scene was tired
before we decided that it’s for the best
you left the kitchen light on
highlight ruins of relations
we could never have forgotten
had we had the guts to say it back when
any of this mattered
now we've gone too far to look back and regret sets in
waiting in awkward silences
for the next fighting words
you had to have it your way
and i'll just stand aside
and let you tumble this house down
you know how to handle these things
somethings come undone
so we're left with nothing but a pile of broken memories
you were so selective with remembering the good things
that were so few and far between
i guess it makes no difference if i disappear
darkened hallways i can't believe this is where we used to live
hard to picture good times in a house where so much had to give
just to get a smile from someone who didn't want to in the second place
emptied out the drawers where your photograph albums record the moments
i never forgot you
and i won't too soon
before the match drops put it all down
in a little black book
these lives aren't picture perfect - postcards
phone calls
too little too late
