Follow you around until it's time
Time to leave
Swimming into the idea of your scene
There all the while proving patiently
I earned to lie by you when you fall asleep

Watched you put on a dress I'd never seen
Something that begged for East Atlantic breeze
There all the while hated quietly
There, just to see a smile... anything

Hang up a sheet
Between our things
Won't have to see
Evidence

You did what you did
The memory lives
Nothing cleans
Evidence

    General CommentI'm not sure, but I think it's about having a girlfriend who either cheated on you or was with someone else during a break and you're aware of it but you're still with them. Every time you look at them you can't help but think of that fact.

    General CommentThis song has been in my head a lot lately. I always thought it was "I earn till I buy you then you fall asleep", but maybe the way it's written here makes more sense. As for the meaning, I agree that it's about the speaker's girlfriend cheating on him, and how he will never be able to really forget it ("nothing cleans...evidence"). It's pretty cool how dark and ominous the song comes across despite the fact that it's in a major key.
