You're on your way to the bottom
at least you know where you're going
and even when I'm sinking I feel sad
see I never let down and I never let go
guess that means I'm invisible
and all that time I really missed my pride

And I'm living a black hoax
living a black hoax lie
wherever you left me
that's where my heart still lies

Once at night where I reside
I lay there still where I want to cry
and I broke the bed and its matress springs
I told them I'll break the bread
but I'll hog the wine
gather around, it's forgetting time
oh I really miss my pride

I'm living a black hoax
living a black hoax lie
wherever you left me
that's where my heart still lies
wherever you left me
that's where my heart still lies

    General CommentI feel like where it says "gather around, just forget in time," the lyrics should be, "gather 'round, it's forgetting time." Buuut anyways, Sarah Jaffe is an incredible artist, so very-very talented!

    My InterpretationThis song I think is a post-breakup song with a little of bitter self amusement which I find it entertaining seeing how good this song came out that I simply love it!!!
