I think you think I'm someone else
Maybe it's me i haven't been myself
And this is only a cry for help
You said watch me fade away.

She's cleaning out the closets
Because there's not much more to keep
Well I am laying on the bathroom floor
I choke myself to sleep.

You can not explain to someone
who will never understand
Because I just jumped out your window
and I can not wait til I land.

I need to stop playing out relationships
inside of my head.
Because every one of my memories
is filled with shit you never even said.

And I fell in love with a girl who I will never see again.
It makes me sad in my head
to think how happy we could have been.

And now it's hard to sing along
when you never knew the words
'cause I swear you're talking lies
and you could swear that I misheard.

And now the ship, it's going down
And I am not sure what to think
Well I am going back to bed
'Cause I refuse to watch her sink.

We'll buy balloons, we'll let them go.
When I get back, I'll let you know
that everything will be the same.
You can't deny what you can't change.

And if you're happy, well then, you're happy.
We could leave it all at that.
Pretend you're happy and I'll be happy.
Then I'll try to make it back.

Now she's cleaning out the closets
because there's not much more to keep
Well I am laying on the bathroom floor
I choke myself to sleep.

You can not explain to someone
who will never understand
Because I just jumped out your window
and I can't wait til I land.

And now the ship, it's going down
And I am not sure what to think
Well I am going back to bed
'Cause I refuse, I refuse, to watch her sink.

    My InterpretationThis is only my interpretation but it sounds like he's in a toxic relationship with someone.I'm not good at putting my feelings into words but the second I heard this song I was brought back to being in that relationship and I'm not sure how to explain it but some of the words especially stuck out to me.
    'Well I am laying on the bathroom floor
    I choke myself to sleep.'
    This line reminded me of how I would often cry myself to sleep because of the things my partner said and did.
    'Because every one of my memories
    is filled with shit you never even said.'
    I would often make fake conversations in my head of things I wanted him to say and how I wanted him to treat me and I imagined them so frequently they started to feel like a memory.
    'cause I swear you're talking lies
    and you could swear that I misheard.'
    I confronted him about it (not exactly he actually asked me why I felt like he was abusing me) and I told him the shit he said and he claimed he didn't even say most of it and that he didn't mean to make it seem like that.
    Though I be completely wrong
