Track Name: In Knots
I severed the noose you tied around my heart
But the strings still hold your name in knots
And I still think about you sometimes

I wonder why'd you go away and what the hell did I do wrong
Where am I supposed to go from here
And how do I move on

When do I start feeling better
Cause I just wanna feel better
And not feel like everything I ever did was wrong

It's been a year now since you left me out in the cold
In that shitty truck headed home
With no heat and windows that don't quite close

Let's add up everything I ever did
It wasn't much but at least it was sincere
And compare it with everything you ever did
All you did was leave me here

And you'll see and everyone will see
Just where you stand and what you did wrong to me
And I'll see I'll finally see
That I let this happen

I miss sitting on your bed and feeling awkward
Cause I don't know how to act when I'm alone with you
But I'll miss every second of it
Cause I know that I'll never have that with you again

And I know that somewhere somehow
I must have fucked things up
But I just wish you'd tell me where and how
So I can make a note to never do it again
Track Name: Past Tense
Of course it rained on your funeral in the middle of winter
It doesn't make much sense
But neither does any of this
The snow all melted and now I can't find your footsteps
Coming up the driveway
I wanted to walk in them
So I could pretend that
I'm making all the decisions you would've wanted

I'll sing this for now
Until I find the time
To write everything down
And figure everything out
I've got a lot to think about
Cause I don't know
How to feel right now

And I've been sleeping in the basement
Watching TV
It helps me get my mind off things
Cause I can hardly sleep
Been waking up to nightmares all damn week
Been waking up to nightmares all damn week

Don't tell me it gets better
I know that it gets better
I'm getting sick of the past tense and referring to you in it
I'm getting sick of the past tense

I'll sing this for now
Until I find the time
To write everything down
And figure everything out
I've got a lot to think about
Cause I don't know
How to feel right now

It's just so hard
And everybody wants to talk about it
But I don't want to talk about it

Cause I keep seeing those eyes
And I keep hearing those breaths
I'm avoiding all these words cause
I cringe when they come up in conversations

I just want to be alone right now
I just want to be alone right now
I just want to be alone right now
Don't ask me how I'm doing
Cause I really just don't know right now
Track Name: I Still Can't Sleep
Hello how are you I feel like it’s been awhile since we last talked
It’s only been something like a week but we used to never even stop
And it’s been far too long for me to still be on this
You did too much wrong for this to still be honest

Wake up wake up
I just got home
I need someone to talk to
I don’t wanna be alone
But now it’s hours after midnight
And I’ve been sitting in my basement
I know that this is over
But I don’t want to face it

Can I come over again
I miss your floor I miss your bed
I miss doing nothing at all
And loving it to death
Can we go out sometime
Can I get that fleeting feeling that maybe you just might
Care, I miss that pillowcase
The heart on your wall and talking to you all night

Wake up wake up
I just got home
I need someone to talk to
I don’t wanna be alone
But now it’s hours after midnight
And I’ve been sitting in my basement
I know that this is over
But I don’t want to face it

It’s 8 a.m.
So I’m gonna try to get to sleep
Clear my head
Get my mind off things
It’s 8 a.m.
So I’m gonna try to get to sleep
It’s 8 a.m.
So I’m gonna try to get to sleep
I guess that I just miss (And I guess you were bound to be)
My head not being a mess (This pain in my chest)
Of fears doubts and lonliness (I tried harder and harder)
Chances missed and so many regrets (But we kept talking less)
Cause now I just can’t get to sleep like this (And I guess you were bound to be)
I’m stuck in the bed (This pain in my chest)
There’s no way I’ll get to sleep (I tried harder and harder)
When I’m stuck in my own head (But we kept talking less)
It’s 8 a.m.
So I’m gonna try to get to sleep
It’s 8 a.m.
So I’m gonna try to get to sleep
It’s 8 a.m.
So I’m gonna try to get to sleep
It’s 8 a.m.
So I’m gonna try to get to sleep
