Day to day déjà vu Nuance of a new moon It’s all over and understood So far gone, gone for good Fifth of whiskey, Fourth of July Filing for divorce Friday night I could sense something wasn’t right You didn’t have to say a thing I could see it in your eyes But once upon a time We were young and you were mine I’ve got a photographic memory A past life, a Pontiac passenger seat So let me get a good long last look at you Is that too much to ask? Little too late little lady I’ve always complicated things Make my living, living in the past Just like last night or the night before last But that was some first summer Couple of star-crossed lovers in my step-brother’s car Rosary on the rearview mirror Where I watched you reapplying Your mascara So I could get a good long last look at you Is that too much to ask?

Swear it ain’t my fault, but I’ll take the heat Blood, sweat & Sunset Boulevard. Vine St. Spent the afternoon acting the fool in the Hollywood I couldn’t stand the waiting room of the Planned Parenthood Once bitten, twice shy Unwritten twilight I was born to run I was born to hide I was born to run I was born to die Now I don’t mind being reminded Woman, I meant it all, more or less I was a nervous wreck, for the record Running in place retracing my steps I guess I’ll never learn my lessons I’m always leaving loose ends Baby we were...

Don’t let me let you down (I’m a)no show, you should know by now But I’ll just adjust to missing you, wanderlust and trust issues Nothing to prove, through pretending and falling in love under false pretenses Prone to prolong and procrastinate I’ll probably never get my priorities straight I’ll miss my friend the most My morning routine, more recently Two months with your toothbrush torturing me Your lavender leave-in conditioner Last year’s lunar calendar I’ll miss my friend the most

So far, so good So good, so far So understood, so in the cards darlin' So well put, so on par So damn dear to my heart We're a bright bouquet we're birthday cake We're a holiday, we're a hit parade honey We're the needle and thread We're the sheets, we're the bed If I've seen better days I don't believe 'em A view of you A veils been lifted So I'll cut loose like a newly wed The cold hard truth, it gets so twisted A view of you We're the wine, we're the grape The primer and paint Painstakingly purring like a kitten Mama Wolf in the womb Caterpillar and cocoon You better believe we are the butterfly baby A view of you The path of least resistance You move like the moon on a murder spree I know pretty soon, I'll be swinging for the fences A view of you

When you're under some other city's sun When it rises to the occasion Casting your shadow in it's light All leading lady-like Now I know there's no getting over you In my solid blue solitude Now I know there’s no getting over you Now I spend my nights in spinning rooms But I can't reach the brakes Why was I so fucking reluctant? I was a fool to not rush in In my finest hour, I was late Now I know there's no getting over you In my solid blue solitude Now I know there’s no getting over you And we'll learn the ropes when we tie the knot I'll look both ways before I cross my heart I will love you 'til I'm long in the tooth because I know, there's no getting over you.

Second-guessing every second of the day Reflecting on the error of my ways I can still feel you stirring in the still of the night Guess I never let you go, but I’m getting by Did I? Did I not disappoint you? I was difficult, I distanced myself My dear, I had no idea what to do The pure, premature palms of your hands Impractical prayers for promised lands But I was near-sighted, nineteen and naive Leave it up to me to up and leave For better or for worse Should’ve made more of an effort Feeling sorry for myself But you’re a sight for sore eyes, for sure Perhaps you’re having coffee with your old college roommate And you’re caught off guard by your increased heart rate It was meant to be a memory, baby So you say c’est la vie, to say the least You say c’est la vie, so unconvincingly You say c’est la vie, lying through your teeth C’est la vie

In the midst of midnight Tripping motion-sensored lights We kissed like silhouettes on a silver screen The suspense was killing me Seventeen in a cemetery You were the female lead In my fever dream But far be it from me, was busy finding my bearings Forgive me please, Miss February Desperate, deep breaths The dark horse at your doorstep Delicate kids, defense mechanisms Defining moments But the pain I felt was unparalleled The burden circled like a bird of prey It struck me as strange, so fucking afraid Of the heartache she left in her wake I guess I lost my nerve and got just what I deserved The turbulence, the turn of events But I loved you ferociously, with every fiber of my being Forgive me please, Miss February

I'm leaving Colorado Got a bus booked for the morning I've got to get back to my baby She’s lonely in California I've been stubborn and I've been stern With all of love's lessons and my learning curve And it's one more morning I'm drawing your portrait from memory And I'm pouring out two cups of coffee I'm so used to the way you used to be The longer I linger On all the little things When their literal meanings Are limited liabilities Sometime’s you can't skirt around the subject When you can't sum up that sinking in your stomach When it's one more morning I'm drawing your portrait from memory And I'm pouring out two cups of coffee I'm so used to the way you used to be I'm so used to you and me
