i painted a box with trees and houses
i kept all your secrets in there cause if i didn't i was afraid i might tell them
and when they escaped you said you were mad
cause now the whole wide world knows it was you who made me this sad

i wondered how
love was allowed
to destroy those
who dared to look it's way

camille suggested i start collecting something like teddy bears
so instead of hugging a grudge i'd have them to hold when you're not here
cause they don't get drunk and sing at karaoke bars
they're hardly ever trashed and they never crash my car

broken bottles of beer laying on your carpet
your mother would hate it if she were here if she saw this
but she's not so don't stop it
cause you always love me when you're drinking and i love it when you love me
