I must have had a dream about you
Cause I woke up in the worst of moods
And when I looked at the clock my day was already ruined
I'm glad that you like your new place
And I hope your new job works out well
I'm getting used to my kitchen and sleeping by myself

And as we talk and reminisce
I barely mask how deeply I'm depressed
And though I can't complain
I think I just might
Cause it can't get much worse

And I hope that you're unhappy to be alone

I'm at my suit job everyday
And Farside's writing a new LP
And though I still hate school I've almost got my degree
I keep myself so busy now
Cause I don't want to be at home at all
Cause everytime that I'm there I'm crushed that you haven't called

And then I dwell and reminisce
About the time I bought the angel dress
That you wore for me
And the sun went down
And you swore you were mine

And I hope that you're unhappy to be alone
I don't want to cry anymore than I cry, just as least as much

I know your children will be beautiful
But I don't ever want to know that they exist at all
So let's not talk and reminisce
Cause it won't clear the cobwebs in my chest
When I clench the phone and I grind my teeth
I know that I'm alone

And I hope, I hope you're miserable
And I hope that you're unhappy to be alone

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song. Songs containing mixed emotions always hit me hard. I love the metaphor about the cobwebs in his chest, about how his heart is stagnant from not being able to love since she left him. The allusion to themselves is rather awkward, but this is a damn good song.

    General CommentBest line: "I don't want you to cry any more than I've cried, just at least as much".
    Weird twist on loving someone, wanting them to be as unhappy as you are about the breakup, I figure ultimately he wants them back together. "I don't wanna be at home at all, cause everytime that I'm there I'm crushed that you haven't called".
    The line that gets me everytime is "I know your children will be beautiful, but I don't ever want to know that they exist at all", it sounds so heartfelt and that's why I love Farside :) the best songs seem to come from the worst imaginable pain.
