lyrics

i stopped halfway through your number
not because i couldn't remember
i just didn't want to ask
i thought too much time had passed

and what would i have said
what would i have said
making sure your still ahead
i put my phone away instead

and yeah i can look around
and take in all the nonsense sound
but you're like a deep breath
i hold you til i drowned.

you seemed so surprised
when i told you the time
i spent sitting there
watching the lines

i don't know why
i don't know why
i'm just trying to find
who am i

"With sadness there is something to rub against,
a wound to tend with lotion and cloth.
When the world falls in around you, you have pieces to pick up,
something to hold in your hands, like ticket stubs or change.
But happiness floats.
It doesn't need you to hold it down.
It doesn't need anything.
Happiness lands on the roof of the next house, singing,
and disappears when it wants to."

- Naomi Shihab Nye

what would i have said?
what would i have said.
checking to make sure you're still ahead
i put my phone away instead

and yeah i can look around
and take in all the nonsense sound
but you're like a deep breath
i'll hold you til i drowned

you can spell check my past
my only broken bone
but you won't find
why i left out 409
