It’s not physical items I hoard, it’s the past 
that won’t go
All the holidays I spent at rehab 
standing in the snow
It’s not entirely her fault
this I know
Even after it’s over
I still dwell, starring out the window
All the s*** I’ve seen
it wasn’t supposed to be me, no
Maybe I’m over reacting 
it’s all done, everything is fine
But I don’t know 
Her, my sister? No she’s not mine
Images play back sending shivers 
straight up my spine
Maybe I need to forgive
forget it, I’ll give it some time
