lyrics

This is a song about things I'd like to forget
Like you and late night movies at your place
This is a requiem for all that we could've been
And I wish that we still could

You'll find three missed calls waiting on your phone
And a message composed of a fear of nothing
For hours of driving in empty lots
Builds crocodile courage in me

This is an apology to me in the morning
For I'll regret letting my words turn into water
And flow like the sea
You'll move on with life and forget
And eat cookies and watch movies at your place
But I'm an elephant at heart

You'll find three missed calls waiting on your phone
And a message composed of a fear of nothing
For hours of driving in empty lots
Builds crocodile courage in me

You thought I'd be out in the world somewhere crying
But I'd never dream of giving you the satisfaction
Of shedding tears over wasted years with you

You'll find three missed calls waiting on your phone
And I won't be bawling in any one of them
For driving along all night long has long dried my eyes out

Cause I had you like I've had a dog or a blister, and I've never had either one. So why am I singing this song and why are you still listening to me?
