A stain that sticks like glue
Your expression when you left
I'll never change your style
Was severed and untied

I failed to help your head
Was selfish and unwise
I'll never make you smile
Because my train was with no trail

A stain that sticks like glue
Your expression when you left
I'll never change your style
Was severed and untied

I failed to help your head
I was selfish and unwise
I'll never make you smile
My train runs with the trail

    General Commentultimate break up song. how searing those last arguments can be and how you can look back with a lot of regrets.

    the lyrics posted here are great! Well done. I have a few minor suggestions on how i hear it:

    The stain that sticks like glue
    Your expression when you left
    I’ll never change your style
    We're severed and untied

    I failed to help your head
    I was selfish and unwise
    I’ll never make you smile
    Cuz my train runs with no track

    A stain that sticks like glue
    Your expression when you left
    I'll never change your style
    We're severed and untied

    I failed to help your head
    I was selfish and unwise
    I'll never make you smile
    My train runs with your track

    General Commentanother breakup song by the master.

    In a lot of Flake Music / Shins songs love and friendship are transcendant, escapes, adventures. the imagery is flight and floating (From Girl Inform Me: "How else could you tie my head to the sky?").

    Then the breakups are messy, devastating. The imagery is "severed and untied" or losing a part of yourself (like a phantom limb).

    "the weird divide" is an amazing song title and that phrase also appears in the song Sphagnum Esplanade: "Far better a find
    it is if we try to span the weird divide
    With no real rationale
    we step out of bounds and think we've escaped the lies"

    From Fighting in a Sack: "Walking a bridge with weakening cables" and "Marionettes on weakening cables/Huddled up with fear and hate/because they know their fate/ and it's a lot to put them through"

    From Pink Bullets: "When our kite lines first crossed
    We tied them into knots
    And finally fly apart
    We had to cut them off" and lastly, "Two loose kites falling from the sky
    Drawn to the ground and an end to flight"

    From Past and Pending: "We settle down to cut ourselves apart" and "and lose yourself in lines dissecting love".
