Well, I heard that you got me a birthday card
But my mailbox still stays empty to go with the empty seat of my car
And I heard that you've got things to say to me
I was always good at listening, yet I haven't heard you speak to me
And I haven't heard you cry in a while, and I don't know if I want to

It wasn't me
It wasn't really me announcing that I just don't care about anything
I'm not afraid, I simply don't want to bother with my life right now, and all its lifelessness

And I know something's going to break this time
Could be the sun in my chest or the cloud inside my skull
Or maybe, maybe the diamonds in my eyes that I just can't seem to find

It wasn't me
It wasn't really me announcing that I just don't care about anything
I'm not afraid, I simply don't want to bother with my life right now, and all its lifelessness

If I could find the road I've paved, there's still a chance that I can be saved
There's still a chance that I can be saved, be saved
Still a chance that I can be saved, be saved
Too much, too much

We almost built a home, and now it's somewhere i won't go
Too much, too late
You used to be my home, and now you're someone I don't know
Too much, too late
Too late

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a really close friend of mine who is going through a divorce. The lines in the song are really similar to feelings he has expressed about the situation: "...I just don't care about anything, I simply don't want to bother with my life right now, and all its lifelessness".
    The rest of the verses sum up the way the ex is behaving toward him, "I heard you've got things to say to me, I was always good at listening but I haven't heard you speak to me" / "You used to be my home, now you're someone I don't know". It's weird how you see a totally different side of someone after a breakup.
    This song also encapsulates the bitterness that can start to consume a person when they go through a difficult breakup, and it almost feels like he wants to throw stuff she has said back in her face: "Something's gonna break... maybe the diamonds in my eyes that I just can't seem to find". There's real, honest pain in the lyrics and delivery, and I'll never hear it in the same way again.
