And she said
“Look me in the eyes
Say you didn’t mean to hurt me
Or make me cry.
The hardest part is knowing
Someone thinks that you deserve this.
The hardest part is knowing
That you’re not on my side.
Voicemails from the front seat
Won’t cut it this time.
I need to know that your face lines up with your words
And I’m not asking for much
Just a singular fuck
Like you gave when we were playing boy meets girl.”
And I said
“Please avert your eyes.”
I can’t let you see me like this
Lazarus in disguise
And the phantom of your hometown
Who’s dying to come back and stay
The ghost of who I used to be
Who just had to get away
Backstage barely beats your bedroom
Or at least that’s what I’ll say on record
(On record)
You’re not asking for a lot
Just to keep you in my thoughts
As I’m watching the sunrise
From the backseat of my car.
So let’s chalk this one up
To immaturity
To not being cognizant of what you mean to me
And there’s a dent in my pillow
Where we used to tell our future
There’s a chip
In the door frame
Where that’s no longer the case
So tell me the truth
Now I guess now my lies won’t do
I’d rather spend these late nights driving
Than to try to catch up to you
Well, hey Mandy
Do you remember
Those nights on the front porch you said we’d forget?
And we’re still making out
In the corner of a party
At a time that I’ll admit I should be in bed
I should be in bed
