Track Name: Tell Me How You Feel So I Can Forget About How I Feel
there are pieces of clothing in my dresser
that I can't wear anymore without
being reminded of all the times you
borrowed them for warmth

there are intersections all across my home town
that I can't drive through without
being reminded of all the times I
met up with you there

there are sights and sounds and colours
that fill me with regret
and if there is a way that I can forget
I haven't found it yet
Track Name: XIII
all i am to you now
is the blue-white glow
that lights up your face when my name
flashes across your called ID

after four rings
it goes dark again
it goes silent again
and i'm out of your life
and that's just the way you wanted it

all you are to me now
is the one phone call
that i make out of habit
every week or two

after four rings
it goes dark again
it goes silent again
and i get on with my life
and that's just what i expected
Track Name: The Avalanche
its not the important things
that stick in my head
when I'm trying to get you out of it

its not your face
its not the fancy date nights
its not the sex
its not the sunny vacations

it's the avalanche
of tiny nonsense
that i'm trying to keep
from burying me

its the sound of your laughter
muffled under covers
first thing in the morning
when I'm trying to wake you up

its the sound of your bare feet
on the hardwood floor
coming down the hall to meet me

its all our stupid inside jokes
that no one else knows
that we'll never get to say out loud again
Track Name: The Distance Between
there is a distance growing
between where we are
and where i want us to be

and i just can't shake the feeling
that this road is longer
than i will ever reach the end of

and i can only keep chasing for so long
before my heart
and my lungs
give up on me

i'm starting to not feel anything
Track Name: It's Good...Well, It's Okay
I'm already starting to lose the memory
of what it feels like to be loved
I know that it's all my fault
but that doesn't stop it from feeling like
this is all wrong

I won't go back
because there's nothing for me there
but I'll try to remember
how much we used to care
how much I used to care
Track Name: Underachiever
you know that i
tried to be what you needed
but i have always been
an underachiever

so let's stop
pretending that this is working for us
let's stop
pretending that this is working for either of us
any of the time

let's stop
making each other miserable
cause i can't keep feeling like hell
for being a constant disappointment
to you
Track Name: No Longer Here
we've said everything we
felt the need to say
sitting on the floor of the bedroom
that used to be our bedroom

now the last box
has been taped shut
and the last painting
that made me feel like i belong here
has been taken off the wall

it's only a 20 minute drive
but it feels like a world away
it's only the next suburb over
but it feels like an ocean away

did I deserve it,
you know I know I deserved it

give me life over death
so many inanimate objects scattered everywhere
that I know not what I own

so hardened now, so hardened now
I feel nothing

strong becomes numb
and happy becomes dead
just like you my love,

so hardened now, so hardened now
I feel nothing

it's only a 20 minute drive
but it feels like a world away
it's only the next suburb over
but it feels like an ocean away
