She called me captain. I dragged her into the deepest seas
What am I supposed to do now with these pictures and these memories
Now that I’ve thrown you away
This is the last song I wrote for you
Where is my closure?
You can feel me clinging to my sheets
Waiting for this new perspective, that these hands are better off empty
Now that I’ve thrown you away, I’m still waiting
And we’ve parted ways; and I hope that you’re happy
‘Cause you are the memory that just won’t seem to fade

    General CommentYeah, basically what FuryofFive said.
    He and a girl were in a relationship of some kind, then it ended, but even with them apart he can't get her off his mind; he can't forget about the time they spent together and all the memories he has of the two of them, even if the girl has forgotten it all and moved on.
