He's in the back of your mind
all of the time
learn to forget
love. leave. forget.
And when I sit alone
I think of what you said
"better off just friends"
I'm better off just dead

And the hardest thing I do
is wake up without you
when everything falls apart
the emptiness leaves a mark

    I'm trying so hard to get over somebody right now, and this expresses so much of what I feel.

    General Commentits weird. i heard this song in my friends car, and thought it was aweasome, and forgot about it and the band. then my (other) friend said "allison, you would like keepsake" so i got onto songmeanings and looked up keepsake and just picked a song that sounded good (this one) and i was like.. "where have i heard this amazing song before?!" and it really is a fun, fun song. (by fun i mean excellent and not literally fun) anyhoo, its a very expressive song that i dont think anyone has trouble relating to.

    General Commentthis song is so incredible. lately it seems that no matter what girl i find she always has another guy on her mind. and i don't know how many times ive been told we're better off just friends. and how many times i thought id be better off dead. it just describes my love life perfectly. 100%
