Lovelorn and helpless because that's how you keep me,
And it's growing older by the seconds that pass.
The pendulum swings like the swaying of trees,
That lined the windows of your apartment.

I should have told you right from the start,
About my sappy fairy tale intentions.
So you could decide if that was alright,
Or turn your back and just walk away.

And this has left my mouth dozens of times,
But I doubt you ever listened.
Because hearing the words and nodding your head,
Is just as good as i'm already dead.

I breath in so deep and put my head in the sink,
To throw up the night spent laughing alone.
Then I call you by name because it's never the same,
When you discover that i'm not listening.

Don't try to understand me,
Because i'm an inner contradiction i'm sure.
I'll put my hands in my back pockets,
Because i'm never quite sure where they go.

And i'll sing you a song about the nights spent alone,
So you can understand the thoughts i'm thinking.
And if you pick up the beat and start tapping your feet,
At least I'll know you can follow along.
