Yeah, you still kiss me, but it's just on the cheek
Yeah, you still kiss me, but it's just on the cheek
Yeah, you still kiss me sometimes
But it's just on the cheek
You pull away so easily

And I still call you, but I get your machine
And I still call you, but I get your machine
And if I'm lucky, I guess, it's your roommate answering
But you're at the bar
Or at Gene's

And we go to dinner, but you won't hold my hand
We sit at the same table, but we don't play with our feet
Yeah, we still go to dinner sometimes
But we don't sneak a kiss
When the waitress turns around

And we still watch movies, but we don't share the couch
And we still rent movies, but we don't share the couch
Yeah, we still watch movies sometimes
But you don't lay in my lap
The plot is slow, take a nap

You even stay over, but we stay in our clothes
Yeah, you'll even sleep over, but now we stay in our clothes
Yeah, you even sleep over sometimes
But we stay in our clothes
I'm only there so you're not alone

And you say that I hurt you in a voice like a prayer
Yeah, you say that I hurt you, and your voice is like a prayer
Yeah, well, maybe I hurt you sometimes
Let's contrast and compare
Lift up your shirt - the wound isn't there

I guess that your truth is just the ghost of your lies
I guess your kind of truth is just the ghost of your lies
Your kind of truth, darling, is just the ghost of your lies
I see through them all the time

So, I'm pouring some whiskey, I'm gonna get drunk
Yeah, I'm pouring myself some whiskey
I'm gonna get real fucking drunk
I'm pouring some whiskey right now
I'm going to get so, so drunk
That I pass out and forget your face
By the time I wake up...

    General Commentthis song is me right now.

    my boyfriend and i broke up but he still kisses me, and it's on the cheek. and i still make and get calls. and we still hang out and talk


    and it just drives me crazy because i'm constantly wanting the actual meaning behind the actions but i never know if they're there

    and i think that's what the song's about. the struggle of a breakup. you still stick with each other, but "we can still be friends". yo uknow? it's just that difficulty after a breakup when you still want to be with each other, but you shouldnt

    It's just so real.
