goddamned goodbye

lyrics

oh the simple joys of flicking
a hot dart in the trash
flames go up behind me
my kitten sleeps beside me
but i can't make her..
someday this city will burn to the ground
like a fort mcmurry library, that day you will not find me

and it's true that i do have a feeling or two
but i like to keep them glued to the soles of my shoes

i'll go find a quiet place, put on the silver jews
cuddle up with a bottle of blues, it's the kinda life you chose to leave behind...

never as good as the first time, didn't know you in the worst times, couldn't love me in the best of times and it's never as good as that first goddamned goodbye

4am on the couch and the xmas lights have all burnt out
like dead flies on the wall and they see it all as we rattle on
and on and on and on and on
into the day, value menu and a menthol sets us straight
as we crawl back to the world that makes us small an dumb
and are we still having fun?
inside jokes left outside to mold, well they'll never be sold but they'll never get old
the rhymes are cheap like twine, the same matt good song we've heard ten million times,
"the future, the future" is blank.
still don't know why i had to go, but all i know is

never as good as the first time, didn't know you in the worst times, couldn't love me in the best of times and it's never as good as that first goddamned goodbye

beige Toronto, Ontario

endless rows of cookie-cut subdivisions, moving backwards in rush hour.
pirouettes in the parking garage too broke for Top Ramen and it all looks beige beige beige beige beige...
