Could you tell me the next time that you're choking?
I'll run right over to shove some dirt right down your throat
It's nothing I have against you
You're just a creep and you can't remember the last five years

What's a bond if it dissolves in water?
I took a piss that lasted longer than you and your manipulations
Called my mom last night
She said, "Sweetie, you don't need someone
who's more fleeting than fall"

Don't you love those leaves?
Don't you wish the orange stayed forever?
And crickets sang in the night
All through winter

And I thought, slow down
Think of all the times this jerk has fucked you up and left you down
And hey, I choose my company by the beating of their hearts
Not the swelling of their heads, no

Don't you love those leaves?
Don't you wish the orange stayed forever?
And crickets sang in the night
All through winter

Besides, I'd rather forget the days we spent than
Try to stay afloat in shallow water

I'd rather forget the days we spent
Than try to stay afloat in shallow water

Rather forget
The days we spent
Than try to stay afloat in

Rather forget
The days we spent
Than try to stay afloat in shallow water

Rather forget
The days we spent
Than try to stay afloat in

Rather forget
The days we spent
Than try to stay

    General CommentI like this song. It reminds me of someone i knew who was my friend but then turned into a bitch and totally forgot me. It's nothing i have against her but she just can't remember the last 2 years. "i'd rather forget the days the we spent" is just how i feel. and "I choose my company by the beating of their hearts Not the swelling of their heads" is just great. It's so true.

    General CommentHe relates to like, everyone so well. This so reminds me of my ex-boyfriend. Like you don't know whats goin on when you were together, but then you break up and think, crap i was an idiot. Stupid attachments. If your ever in a relationship you dont like get out of it before the 'attachment' part becomes too much. just a little advice.

    General CommentYeah, I'm guessing whoever it was that he wrotet his song about is a friend that maybe tries to act different and was never really good friends w/ him but acted like it. I hate that. It's happened to me but not a lot and I never wanna have a friend that I feel that I wanna forget later on in life.

    General CommentI don't think there're any STD songs that people can't relate to on some level. That's why they're so amazing - everyone feels connected

    General CommentTo add to what purrbiscuit was saying...I salute anyone who is unashamed to wear their heart on their sleeve and take what's given. I wish I wasn't so afraid of writing lyrics that really mean something to me and being told "that sucks."
