Was it that hard
To give me away
Are you that easily persuaded
By a memory that's faded
Like a card
Left out in the rain
And tears will fall like ink right off the page

Tell me can you sleep at night
Knowing I'm awake
When you turn out the light
Did you think that I was gonna be alright
Kicked out of your life
Now tell me can you sleep at night

Do you think of me
When you're with her
Is she filling all the blanks in
Til the temporary space is empty again
Just like you are
And now you'll have to smile and just pretend

So tell me can you sleep at night
Knowing I'm awake
When you turn out the light
Did you think that I was gona be alright
Pushed out of your life
And tell me can you sleep

But all this time we've wasted
You were all I thought about
And this bitter pill I'm tasting
Well its time to spit it out
Oh no, no, no

    General CommentYeah. I submitted this and I'm the first comment. Lol. But yeah I love this song. Everything about it. The melody, the way the instruments sound kind of misty and far-away, like distant (..Yes I know that probably doesn't make sense.) And especially Courtney's voice. It sounds amazing in this song. Beautiful.

    General CommentThis song defines what I'm going through, wondering what the other person thinks of you during an awkward part of your relationship
