lyrics

I found a letter you wrote me under my bed
"I couldn't bear to let you go" that letter read
Now we can't even make the time, or maybe you're just too polite
"I just don't love you anymore" is what you really meant

I know you couldn't know you'd cut so close to me

The autumn left and winter came with a frozen stare
Connecting dots of fallen snow on your pitch black hair
Motionless, remiss, and your eyes fluoresce
And we could end it with a kiss, but that wouldn't be fair

I know you couldn't know you'd cut so close
But when your taxi pulled away I wished you would have stayed
With me

The book that took a month to read
You had to recommend
The tattoo on your sleeve
The one from "East of Eden"

A wealth of sorrows in a few words
