What about those pictures we took
At the photobooth at the mall?
Did you take a lighter to them
Or are they still pinned to your wall?
I hope that when you take them down
It takes the paint off with them too
So if you ever want to move from your apartment
You'll have to repaint your entire room
Then every time you see that shade
You'll be forced to think of me and how
Maybe you'd be better off right now
If you would have just let things be
Let it be

Here is the lonely hum in my brain where your name used to be
My heart is the only place in my body that you'll never see

Well you can key my car if you want to
I know you want to
And you can slash my tires, you want to
I know you want to

What about those talks we had
Late at night through our cell phones?
Do you still listen to my voicemails
Or were you never that alone?
If we would have met at a different time
If the clocks were faster or a few hours behind
We wouldn't be here clutching our chests
With blood between every breath
