I woke up such a mess today
So alone and so afraid
That all the mistakes I had made
Had followed me back to this place
And all these faded memories
They still haunt me in my sleep

Well excuse me for the way I look at you
You remind me of someone I thought I knew
And I loved her so
But she left me in this tomb

So why does it always end this way
A million things we never say
'Cause if our hearts weren't meant to break
Why is there so much we can take

Well excuse me for the way I look at you
'Cause you remind me of someone I swore I knew
And I loved her so
But she left me in this tomb

    General CommentAnd obvious break up song.

    John always seems to preface this one by saying "What do you do when life hands you lemons? Write a really sad song about it."
