a week a week you've been sleeping for a week
yeah but does he know does he know does he know
don’t worry cause i’m sure he'll get a copy
of the list of times I saved your life

i know exactly where i want to be
i know exactly where i want to be
in your bed, lying dead
will that get your attention baby!?


a week a week you've been asleep for a few days now
and do ya do ya know do ya know do ya know that I’ve been here everyday
watching you, what you do, scrap the plan,
get my senses, grab my bag and climb out the window



i know exactly where i want to be
i know exactly where i want to be
in your bed, lying dead
will that get your attention sweetie!?

fresh cut wrists and still clasped fists
am i messing up your sheets
well ill be gone soon


you left, you left me hanging like a noose
you left, you left me hanging like a noose
you left, you left me hanging like a noose
you left, you left


in your bed, lying dead
will that get your attention asshole!?

fresh cut wrists and still clasped fists
am i messing up your sheets
well ill be gone soon
ill be gone soon, soon enough
yeah ill be gone soon
ill be gone soon, soon enough
ohhhhh

    General CommentMy girlfriend that I dated for three years… this is a long story but I’ll make it short and leave out some of the shit that I probably shouldn’t say… She went to San Francisco to visit her father (she lived in Manhattan), and while she was there Nada Surf was playing and that was like our band, you know. We both love them a lot. So she went to see our band play, and she didn’t want to go alone, so one of my friends from San Francisco was around and I told her to go with him and that he’ll show you a good time, and I called him up and asked if he could show her a good time. So he showed her a good time. She cheated on me after three years at a Nada Surf show, which was our band, which is really fucked up. When I found that out, she flew back to New York, I woke up. I didn’t sleep when I found out, I found out over the phone, and I went as soon as it was light out on a train from Long Island into the city. I planned on… I didn’t know what I planned on doing, I was fucking crazy though. I lost it. I’m a pretty mellow guy, and I lost it. I lost it, and went completely crazy for about six months. Her dad called me because I was pretty much trying to beat down her door. I obviously wouldn’t touch a hair on a woman’s head ever, but I didn’t know what I was going to do. I think I was just going to yell or something. I called her and I was like “I’m outside, you need to talk to me” because she didn’t even tell me. I got a text message saying “I’m so sorry”, and I’m like what is this? And then he calls me and tells me. So I actually didn’t get a restraining order, but her dad called and said he was going to get a restraining order and I said I’m not doing anything wrong. I obliviously wanted to just talk to her and hear it from her. Three years, you owe me that much. So I called it “My Second Restraining Order” because it almost was. I had a restraining order when I was 19 for violence.
