We're Dead

I wake up.
I brush my teeth.
She left hot water to my relief.
I'm obsessed,
Get dressed,
Back to school.
Another day goes by for this life-sick ghoul.

Sleeping,
Walking,
You keep talking.
You keep stalking and I keep stalking back.
I should just close my eyes,
And embrace this panic attack.

I don't even know what I want anymore.
I can't remember what I wanted before.
I guess I wanted you, but you're gone.
I guess I wanted you, but you're gone forever...

We would sit around and sing A Day To Remember.
We'd share earbuds and yell Never Shout Never!
I guess I wanted you, but you're gone.
I guess I wanted you, but you're gone forever!

You walk up to me and ask me for this dance...

My lips are cold and the butterflies are dead.
We can never forget all the goodbyes that we said.
I guess you wanted me, but I'm gone.
I guess you wanted me, but I'm gone forever.
