I've gotta say I like it better
Now that we don't talk
Now that I can't remember
Why we spent our time just dodging obstacles
So let me, Yeah let me count up all the ways that I've been through
All of the steps it takes me not to think of you

And you'll find me catching fireworks out on my front porch
I look my worst
I need practice standing still
Because I never really knew how to end a day
And my mind doesn't know how to stay the same
With all these realizations you'd think that I'd find a way to change

Like when I first moved in I was smoking cigarettes my face to the window
Three weeks later I'm in bed and I'm still,
Yeah I'm still chained to all the drags that'll stop and fuck my health
But I've never found anything that works so well

And I've been living in a world of sharp, sharp pain
We don't think too much but the rent gets paid
I need practice standing still
Because I never really knew how to end a day
And my mind doesn't know how to stay the same
With all these realizations you'd think that I'd find a way to change

And you'll find me catching fireworks out on my front porch
I look my worst
I need practice standing still
Because I never really knew how to end a day
And my mind doesn't know how to stay the same

Since all my clean friends moved away
Since all my clean friends moved away
I never found a way to change
I never found a way to change
Since all my clean friends moved away
I never found a way to change
Everything just stays the same

    I've gotta say I like it better
    Now that we don't talk
    Now that I can't remember
    Why we spent our time just dodging obstacles
    So let me, Yeah let me count up all the ways that I've been through
    All of the steps it takes me not to think of you

    And you'll find me catching fireworks out on my front porch
    I look my worst
    I need practice standing still

    And I've been living in a world of sharp, sharp pain
    We don't think too much but the rent gets paid
    I need practice standing still
    Because I never really knew how to end a day
    And my mind doesn't know how to stay the same
    With all these realizations you'd think that I'd find a way to change

    And you'll find me catching fireworks out on my front porch

    Since all my clean friends moved away
    I never found a way to change
    I never found a way to change
    Since all my clean friends moved away
    I never found a way to change
    Everything just stays the same

    My InterpretationAn old girlfriend who moved away comes back for a visit. You are still doing the same bullshit that forced her out the door. Until you see her again you hadn't felt ashamed. Seeing her again reminds you of the plans and dreams you had together. It reminds you of all the people you have known who got their shit together and moved on to "better" things. You stayed the same and don't know why you couldn't find a way to change.
