my tongue's got a stutter
and my heart's got a stammer
across the room
i'm always so quietly enamored

but my roommate takes care of me
when i stumble home
it's stormin' out my window now
i've got nowhere to go

my friends are stitchin' up my clothes
and she's got a new boyfriend
i wonder what her mother thinks
and what she does on the weekends

once in every while
my mind will take me back there
see you dancing in that sweatshirt
and your purple underwear

the last time that we spoke
i was laying on the carpet
my thoughts drifted away
back to that familiar darkness

where i dream about your voice
hell, you'll always be my favorite thing
"baby, why can't you see it?
this keeps happening."

well it seems i've come to like these blues
however long they last
yeah i guess that you've become my muse
i'm sorry i didn't ask

i hope you have good memories
nothing too bad
the spoonin', the music,
and the distance that held us back
