Leave our things
Leave them wrapped in dust
Protect our things
Wrapped in a film of us

Touch them sometimes
To remind them whose they are
And let the layers build up
Dirt is falling in the dark

Commit them to bags
And filthy frames
As your air blows past them
Sometimes whisper their names

Touch them sometimes
To remind them whose they are
And let the layers build up
Dirt is falling in the dark

I fell out of pace
I favoured newness over you
Yet I still like to think
That our things are always true

Touch them sometimes
To remind them whose they are
And let the layers build up
Dirt is falling in the dark

This is just a hiccup
In a bigger sea of plan
Oh, I sit here, I sway
To preserve what I can

    General CommentX dumped Y because of boredom [I favoured newness over you]. X in unhappy about that at the moment. X is looking at photos and things that belonged to them and remembering the time spent with Y. Post-breakup regret at its nastiest, with a note of finality and refusal to let bygones to be bygones. Lovely.
