well i'm taking down the tent
where we lived for a month
and everything's fucked up
everything's fucked up

you're out on an island
you're waiting for a bus
we're both feeling too grown up
the holes in our plans sewn up

by the threads of insecurities
buttons, patches, blank CDs
the covers that I always stole
still smelled like you somehow

and the smoke that we had stuffed
into our lungs to ease the pain
brought back memories of rain
a flood of tears that never came

as it broke into our soaking bones
soaked into our broken homes
i didn't want it to end this way
i didn't want to do this on the phone

and i'm pulling up the stakes
that kept us tethered down
to this strange suburban town
where we drove all around

looking for something to distract us
from the changing of the leaves
cuz leaving changes things
that we were trying not to see

the context of our codependency
the drunk messages you left for me
i can't listen to those songs again
they're burned into my memory

like when we got walked in on by your dad
during the best sex that we'd ever had
i never thought it'd get so good
i never thought it'd get this bad
