Lathargic as it may seem
Closure's all that we have
Neon lights on my heart still blinking vacancy
I'm not ready to throw your tears away
I'm not believing that I might forget it some day

You said I'd be alright, but I just keep waiting
I keep you hanging from strings on my heart
which tie me back to you

I still drive the car with these automatic windows
We loved so much as we smoked our fears away
And I'm still hanging on dreams
Of castles and clouds and white picket fences
And you spending your life with me

You said that I'd be alright
You said that I'd be okay
Well I'm not, and I'm miserable
And I'm drinking tonight to remember how good it had felt
Back when life was real

And I'll never give you up
I'll never find love without having an answer
Of why it's not attached to you

I still drive the car with these automatic windows
We loved so much as we smoked our fears away
And I'm still hanging on dreams of castles and kids and white picket fences
And you spending your life with me
And you spending your life with me
And you spending your life with me

    General CommentI thought the "neon light" line was kinda corny... I think emo's more about being real, so I love the "automatic windows" line, I don't think anyone who didn't really do that would ever think to say it. Heartfelt is better the hack metaphor.
