lyrics

Do you still flake apart in seconds
While you’re sifting through excuses
You fell asleep
You rarely leave
Do you still pretend that I just missed you
Eating here inside your bedroom
You’re covered head to feet
It’s thirty-four degrees

So now I flip around your mirror
For the second time this week
I shouldn’t touch your things
You didn’t want to see
So I stopped asking how you’re doing
Because you said it was exhausting
You said it wasn’t sweet
You said I’m so draining

You said I wasn’t all I’m cracked up to be
You’re over missing me when I leave

So now you’re drinking without chasing
It flows right through your slender frame
You tell me what you think
You hate my crooked teeth

It’s like a burning in your skull
You haven’t had such a mean streak
Since you were seventeen
When you were so angry
So I’ll stomach all you can dish to me
I’m stomaching all you can smoke and drink
I can tell by your eyes you’re going to make this
A rough night for me

You said I wasn’t all I’m cracked up to be
You’re over missing me when I leave
You’re hanging up again
You take it out on me
