Lately I've been thinking about
The day that you were moving out
And the tattered body of your couch
Got stuck in my doorway

It was pathetic, prophetic
and it was you who said it
"I dont know why I'm leaving anyway"

I know that love was complicated
And slightly overrated
And we made each other nearly go insane

And it was useless, and stupid
But it hurt so bad to lose it
And I don't want to lose you all the way

Our favorite club, the summer lake
and all the sloppy birthday cakes
it all just seems like such a waste
if we just let it go

It gets so lonely when you're cast
into the pitch of someone's past
it doesn't have to be like that
So could I propose...
Oh could I propose...

I remember how to be friends
Do you think that we could
start there again?
And I don't really know how it ends
But come on over
Could you come back over?

I've seen the world
Since you've been gone
I took that trip to Panama
That you and I kept putting off
And I got sick on the cruise

I mean it was scenic
But I wanted you to see it
And no one helps me convalesce like you

Now I have taken up the fashion
That you hated with a passion
And the clothes I buy
Just never make me calm

I don't need 'em, but I keep 'em
I feel lost in all this freedom
Oh I miss the cozy prison of our home

I was your solar system's only star
before we got the way we are
And the supernova left a scar
That reminds me every day

That it gets so lonely when you're cast
into the pitch of someone's past
and it doesn't have to be like that
So could I propose...
Could I propose...
