My stomach becomes hollower
The more I eat alone
I can hardly stomach
Getting you on the phone

I feel like an idiot
Every time I see you
And I feel like you're an idiot too

I say you look great
I've lost a lot of weight you say
My old clothes don't even fit
remember my denim jacket

Of corse I do
You wore it all three years
through camping trips and irrational fears

Oh Poughkeepsie

I'm sick and I'm tired
I shouldn't be singing
I'm gonna lose my voice
But it doesn't really matter

Because I've got no one
to talk to

    General CommentThese lyrics remind me of losing someone who you really loved and having a meeting with them again. Just to see where you're at. Of course, you look better, but seeing that person makes you feel sick and helpless.
