Early morning coffee was always dull
But I’m no good at catching stars

Fire burns after the explosion
I forgot to pay the water bill

Overnight delivery from FedEx
Forward me your last known address

I have respiratory problems with a side of overindulgence
The accounts owned by love are overdrawn

Late nights convincing myself it doesn’t matter
When you hung in the balance of my mind

Soon enough we all fall out of our trees
You never liked apples

Right now I can’t forget that October night
When I fell down the black hole you made just for me

My battery is at 100%
You always seemed to drain my patience

You were always better at math
I never got our variables

I drove 13 miles from the beginning of nonexistence
I turned the corner
