Honest feelings and bad timing
Happy moments and bad decisions
Believe me I didn’t see this coming
We’re a box of souvenirs and delusions

Lost in translation
I know somewhere I went wrong
Don’t want to lose this connection
Don’t want us to be just a song

I miss our spam curry kisses
Looking at things that are none of my business
I miss that song you made, Skittles
The things you made out of old water bottles

Remember how we kissed ’til our lips bled
That morning that you made your bed
All the alien things you ever said
The way you lost your mind when I give you head

Your beats that made me go yeah
Now I had to delete my favorite songs by ‘Ye
When you said Ultralight Beam’s like worship
Brown coffee still reminds me of you with every sip

When we talked about the things we both lacked
When the tiles on your living room cracked
The way your eyes lit up ’cause of Rick & Morty
The way we imagined not getting married at forty

My mind is filled with memories of that unholy week
And when I made soup for you when you were sick
Why did we lose everything so quick?
Am I really that much of a dick?

“Ask for too much and you’ll lose me”, you said
“I don’t have time for a relationship and I don’t
want one”, you added
There came the words I forever dread
Still breathing but I’m already dead

Please don’t think I just left you behind
I’d rather lose you than lose my mind
Is this what they meant by being cruel to be kind?
Utterly terrible how comfort made us blind

Your fickle mind and my fickle heart
It’s you I’ll stare at in a room full of art
But after all, we’re just songs unsung,
words unspoken
The things that made us whole are
the things that left us broken

But my work in your life is done
The beginning of the end began
And as I blow out my beer’s foam
I realize your arms will always be my home
