Woke up at seven on the day you left
Lifting up a cigarette, I caught my breath
I shook off all the sleep
Cause I knew that this was the last day
Took all your letters and photographs
Read through the lines and then I thought
Thought back to the times we had
Before we knew today was the last day
And I'm biding my time until it's gone
I guess I'm using this sigh as a crutch
Because there's nothing left to lean on

And I'll be fine without you in this state
I'm just getting by
Am I still all that's on your mind?
Am I still all that's on your mind?

Between now and then I'm moving forward
Counting down the days until I make my way out west
You had these plans before we even knew a story
Ending this chapter's for the best

If this is what it takes and you just go
I swear I'll make it on my own
If this is what it takes and you just go
I swear I'll make it on my own
If this is what it takes and you just go
I swear I'll make it on my own
If this is what it takes and you just go
I swear I'll make it on my own

And I'll be fine without you in this state
I'm just getting by
Am I still all that's on your mind?
And I'll be fine without you in this state
I'm just getting by
Am I still all that's on your mind?
Am I still all that's on your mind?
Am I still all that's on your mind?
