lyrics

Write me that free verse poetry
Unlock the wall inside of me
It doesn't matter what you say
I don't miss you

Tell me that we're two souls in one
Tell me I comfort and treasure you
Tell me, when all is said and done,
"I don't miss you"

For I make it real
No matter what changes carry through
My memory's clear
Preserved in artwork made for two
When every song calls our your name
I can absolve us both of blame
And that makes it real
And lets my vicious cycles slip away

Look straight through me no matter where
Tell me that you no longer care
I will not cry "God, it's unfair"
I don't miss you

'Cause after the distance we agreed
After you said you had to go
You still wrote back to me to plead
"Tonight I miss you"

And that makes it real
No matter what changes carry you
My memory's clear
Preserved in artwork made for two
When every song calls out your name
I only give myself the blame
And that makes it real
And lets my vicious cycles slip away
To when you'd say, "I like me best when I'm with you"
If you'd still say, "I like me best when I'm with you"

Always my muse, always my light
We'll get it straight or say goodnight
There's nothing I need to set right
I don't miss you

So write me that free verse poetry
Unlock the wall inside of me
It doesn't matter what they say
I still love you

And that makes it real
No matter what changes carry through
My memory's clear
Preserved in artwork made for two
When every song calls out your name
I only give myself the blame
And that makes it real
And lets my vicious cycles slip away
To when you'd say, "I like me best when I'm with you"
If you'd still say, "I like me best when I'm with you"

Don't tell me it's the only way
Don't tell me it's the every way
Don't tell me where I'm going
'Cause I'll be there before you
