When I see your picture my heart forms a fissure
I guess that I get this way
I need a rooftop I can look from or jump off
I guess that I get this way

What's the problem, dear? Are you feeling unloved?
That's what I was most afraid of

I need a fresh arm I can slice up or cut off
I guess that I get this way
When my skies are crooked my scars turn blue
I guess that I get this way

    General Commentthis is probably my favorite song from "I Will Write You..."

    it's pretty much about the sadness of not being with someone special

    General Commenti agree.
    it's about losing someone you love and not being able to deal with it properly.

    it's an amazing song.
