I walked up to the hill where the sun was circles, I was stressed out
Past the post office, down High Street, where we used to meet
Seven mile changed substantially since I had moved away
The new owners, they cut down all the trees

I don't realize how cynical that i can be
I'm making changes to myself, I don't always see the
Way I hurt you, I hurt myself too, it's unimaginable
I never thought that I'd become this reflection that I've seen

And now I'm too late, but at least you moved on
It feels great to escape, I'm sure you know
I can't sing without a memory that keeps me awake
I'm doing better, temporarily, temporarily

The smell of gasoline, the backyard fire, on your trampoline
The moody messages that I would leave on an answering machine
I never yell much, I'm not any better I just don't really care
I've tried to make it up for years, I swear

The neighbors stared when I was locked outside of your apartment
I thought they called the cops but they were smoking weed
I thought I'd never make it out of here alive or not insane, it turns out that this is all I need

'Cause when I got out I was scared and lonely
I've been pushing through, I've been staying up late
In this quiet house, it's like a hospital with better TV
I never figured that this silence could be so ordinary

So come and take me home, it's better if I'm not around
So come and take me home, it's better if I'm not around

Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa

And now I'm too late, but at least you moved on
It feels great to escape, I'm sure you know
I can't sing without a memory that keeps me awake
I'm doing better, temporarily, temporarily, temporarily
