lyrics

Jotting down events of the past two years / words spill out, they're a cloudy mess, an emotional wreck / nothing but dirt and tears / resurrecting pain I felt / when revisiting the love I held / reminding me that I'm never quite over anything.

I just wanted it to be poetry / when I revealed the private thoughts that have been lingering / when I try to sing it stings in my throat and there's bitterness on my teeth / but I repeat, this form of therapy, this honesty.


Jotting down events of the past two years / this action does not serve as an eraser / and this pen and paper can't make my thoughts clear /
in a fit of frustration I'll give up and lose my patience / extract the memory from my head and make it into something beautiful instead.

I just wanted it to be poetry / when I sang of how you lost your love for me / when I try to sing it stings in my throat and there's bitterness on my teeth / but I repeat, this form of therapy, this honesty

Damn, I swear you were just here / a timeline of two years / pass by like the highway in my cars review mirror.
