She's your New York City, I'm your Abeline
She's your poetic silence I'm the song you sing
She's your growing up I'm your staying young
She's your play it safe I'm your need to run

She's the air you try to breathe
The happy ending you try to see
She's the reasons you make up
To try to get over me

She's your pretty portrait, I'm your wrinkled photograph
She's your straight face, I'm your make you laugh and cry to dance and to lie

She's the air you try to breathe
The happy ending you try to see
She's the reasons you make up
To try to get over me

She keeps your things, she keeps your yard and your home
I keep your heart on my bed stand while I sleep alone

She's the air you try to breathe
The happy ending you try to see
She's the reasons you make up
Make believe kind of love

She's the reasons you make up
To try to get over me
Over Me

    General CommentShe was like this guy's old friend, or a g/f when he was younger, but then he finds another person when he's older, and he tries to get over his friend... (the best way i can explain it)
