Such Luck 02:25
I know that we fucked up I know that you don’t care I’ve learned that such luck Is something I have to live with But It still hurts It makes me feel worse I know that holding up alone is a bad idea And I know that blowing up your phone is a bad idea It’ll make me feel worse God, it makes me feel worse I guess that I should feel cursed ‘Cause it fucking still hurts.

Two Beers In 02:15
Two beers in, Already feels like it’s one of those nights to forget. The more that I drink the more that I feel broken and alone At a party with friends. Fuck everything about this. You walk in with the new boyfriend you met just last week. His big grin. He doesn’t know that you’ll leave him so broken and alone When it comes to an end Fuck everything about him. Two beers in, Already feels like it’s one of those nights to forget. The more that I drink the more that I feel broken and alone.

Lately I’ve been staring at my ceiling, Thinking daily, pondering the feeling That you hate me, And how that makes me feel. I’m uncertain that you ever cared or thought that love was real, But I still find a million reasons to keep the things you left behind. Like the letters that we wrote your first semester in the fall Or the pictures in my closet that used to hang upon my wall They’re still not gone, You wouldn’t expect that would you? You didn’t expect that did you? I can’t blame you, I never thought I’d keep them, after all. And after all I was the one who had to finally make the call. I had to leave, you didn’t love me for me. Why can’t you see, you didn’t love me for who I am?

Tongue Tied 02:42
What I say is what I get I’m just tongue tied Waiting in the back of my mind Is “You’re not worth it.” A daily dose of my own regret And unsaid feelings that I won’t forget So I speak the truth into empty cans and bottles (it’s a problem) The definition of a diary but put into a song Everything I ever meant to say but always said it wrong Every day I dial your number I just never make the call It’s like standing on the edge so I can contemplate the fall Did you forget you said forever when I asked how long you’d stay And that we’d always make it better if it ever went astray? I guess liars aren’t compatible, that’s why we parted ways It doesn’t change the fact I still believe in everything you say So I’ll contemplate the fall What I say is what I get I’m just tongue tied Lets just get this over with A knot left untied The definition of a diary but put into a song Did you forget you said forever when I asked how long you’d stay It doesn’t change the fact I still believe in everything you say Because I do.

Pallet Town 03:36
In the hospital I formulated a picture perfect way To predict when I got out What I thought I’d be strong enough to say But I can’t tell you I don’t know why I can’t tell you My throat goes dry So I’ll call my friends for beers And try to drink away the years Of believing what you wrote in my yearbook There’s no changing the direction those years took now And we’ll play our favorite songs And we’ll have to sing a long To pretend that we’re reliving the old days I’ll pretend that you aren’t stuck in your old ways now It must take a mastermind or some kind of genius To figure out the reasons Behind all of this And why I’m not over it. I’m still not over it and that’s pretty plain to see.

You know I'm a drinker, but I won't swallow my pride anymore Tonight you've got me thinking so hard that my fucking eyelids are sore I don't want to live this life when every single minutes a chore We complicate our existence and what the fuck do we do it for? God damn it's been way too long Since we've agreed on anything at all I kept my hopes up, I'm so sorry I never thought that you could make me feel so (small) I'm tired of the bullshit and the fact we're never on the same page I hate the way you smirk at every single fucking thing that I say And I think... I think right now's the perfect time to tell you that we're taking a break Oh, nevermind. God damn it's been way too long Since we've agreed on anything at all I kept my hopes up, I'm so sorry I never thought that you could make me feel so small

Kim Tastie 03:06
Somehow I failed in your eyes. Somehow I’ve gone stale Is that all that you wanted from me? I’ve seen the weight of regret In the look you give me when we’re alone It wasn’t there the day we met How could we have ever known Am I not all that you wanted? At all? Sometimes I hear you crying While I’m pretending to sleep Is it that hard to love me Or Is love just hard to keep? I think it is. Yeah.

My thought process is constant rat race A battle of emotions between numb and a bad place I don’t think I’ll ever learn No I’ll probably never learn The novel worth of text you wrote to try and explain Was full of bad excuses mostly written in vain It’s not something I think I’ve earned And that’s probably none of your concern now. It’s not your fault I’m a wreck, a mess, I’m broken I tend to give my all to end up confused and hoping for a change. And I don’t think that I’ll ever learn. No I’ll probably never learn.
9.
Did you know that forever and always Meant nothing more than a couple of words and the smile it put on my face I think that’s bullshit You know it’s bullshit I wonder if you miss me at all Or even care about my existence I’m sitting in my bedroom having sing alongs to songs you’ve never heard Or that you’d probably never care about, I can’t figure out what’s worse The ease with which you lied and convinced me I was not someone you’d throw away Or the fact that it fucking worked I guess I’ll just push play and be a stowaway Did you feel anything at all? Or was I just a way to pass the time Until your boredom built a wall And was it worth it? It wasn’t worth it. The flawless picture inside my head turned out to be imperfect. The songs they’re droning on and on As the day’s rolling on and on.

My lifestyle is a form of suicide But then again everyone’s is Mine just may be faster than others The drinking, smoking, hearing from my mother That I should take much better care of myself I spend my life staring at my bedroom walls The TVs on but I don’t care In my mind it really hasn’t been that long But then reality sets in and It’s been years. All alone in my room Without anything to do Except I’m thinking of you And the times that we spent Glued at the lips, always attached at the hip Your special brand of crazy And the sex after fights I know that those days are gone I think about it most nights Those days are gone. I think about you most nights.
11.
These days I like to sleep my life away But back then I’d stay awake just to see your face I wouldn’t sleep for days But now I sleep for days These days I like to sleep my life away But back then I’d stay awake just to see your face I wouldn’t sleep for days But now I sleep for days I never should have said that I loved you I never should have said a god damn thing I should have kept my fucking mouth shut And then it would have stayed, It probably would have stayed, I know it would have stayed the same.
