The Past Two Lyrics

and i swear i tried to find the light in this i held my breath for as long as i could hold on. you've known i'm not much for complaining but there's not much left of me this winter got the best of me. december killed the best of me. and i'm sure it's been catching and gaining but how could you see. and even if you spun cartwheels with sparklers in your hands it wouldn't be enough for me december killed the best of me. and i just called and i just wrote to say goodbye. cuz i'm afraid when the snow clears there won't be much left of me. december killed the best of me

hm, they mention how bad winter is a lot. i agree. living in il for the last two years or so really depressed me at winter time.

I doubt it has much to do with the season. It probably has to do with somethnig happening in the season. A lot of bad shit happens in the winter cuz everyone's trapped inside.

i think it has something to do with xmas and shit cause they specifically mention december in this song

I once called an ex-girlfriend on Christmas and it killed me. This song reminds me of that, but the thing that got me was the title....we broke up two years go and I've been thinking about it ever since.

Great song. probably one of the most beautiful and well-written songs i've heard in a while. i don't really know why it's titled "the past two", i think this song is about how he has messed up in the past, and he has been misunderstood, and he knows he might not make it through his current situation, so he wants to make he says goodbye, so he won't mess up one last time.

This song is definitely about suicide, even figuratively. It sure makes me feel suicidal at least. "I just wrote to say goodbye, 'cause I'm afraid when the snow clears, there won't be much left of me." All about massive break downs, being at your farthest limits. Killing yourself to the point of ruining your identity, if not a physical end, in which December represents not only a wintry month, but also depression and other feelings of angst that just cut you down to size. And that line about cartwheels and sparklers is so golden. When you're depressed like that, there's nothing anyone can do to make it better. You're at your end. This song expresses that so perfectly.

"december killed the best of me," i guess when you see people in their unfailing holiday/christmasy spirit, it gets to you, hard. knowing that everyone's with their loved ones, and you're utterly and miserably alone.
