I had no idea what I was after,
I'm just preparing for disaster with everything feeling so far away
Familiar faces, familiar lips, is there any point to this hanging around?

I was upset when that glass broke doing the dishes
At 11:11 every night I make wishes

Habit and superstition feed my foolish fires,
They've been burning for a couple of months.
I stay out all day to keep these thoughts away
Why don't you give my feet a break...and come back

I remember in the kitchen when you told me your grandma died,
That's when I realized it gets worse.
I want to wish things last forever,
Won't you thicken my soft skin,
Comfort me so and I remember, remember...
When I walk though that door I won't hear the happy sounds anymore.
This year took so much away,
And won't give it back

    General Commentthis is a perfect example of having such high hopes and expectations and everything always crashing down when it comes to be. you wish upon stars, ignore warning signs and cross your fingers only to have it come to be a negative outcome every time.
