how could I be happy on a day like today
when i can't even breathe
i should put myself away and run
how could i feel lucky gettin' what i just received
took it in the ass
all that gravel and broken glass
those are scars that last
does this make it over? i know.
come down, breathless heather -- i know
soggy little nothings, that's all they really are
rotted too long in there
better give them all some air
they're just lies
i have told a couple
now that's a lie right there, i've told so many more
but i'm not keeping score
god, i love your smile
does this make it over? i know.
come down, breathless heather -- i know

    General Commenti've always thought it was about trying to make up with your boyfriend/girlfriend after you've done something to hurt them.

    General CommentI love when he says "god, I love your smile..."

    I love that feeling when you're talking to someone you like a whole lot and you just have to pause and be like "wow. you are so cute."
