Your parents split up and I'm left here to feel sorry for you.
I'm just not sure if this is how it's supposed to be with me on your bed,
and your eyes glued to the TV.
I'm just not sure if I fit into this film strip of yesterdays

and it just feels right floating around your room.
It just feels right touching your hair.
It just feels right to hold onto what we felt before.

and how it isn't working anymore.
It's ten seconds until it gets quiet.

And if this is how it ends, I'm already dead.
