lyrics

these broken keys won't allow for cheerful melodies,
but i could play the saddest songs on balconies with ease

these painted walls haunt me.
these bathroom stalls taunt me.
these hallway blues have me turning hues too faint to view,

so what did you do instead?
you just stayed inside your room and ignored the world that propositioned you,
and what did you tell your friends
when they asked you why the life you've known was at its best when left alone?

but if i played this song for all the world to see
would she notice me?
or would she find some other fool?
who'd use his pseudo-charm to hold her in his selfish arms
and surely do her harm
oh, i can't take this anymore!

on quiet floors i knocked on quite doors
but did she notice, my lowest moments?
when the only way to fake it through the day
is with a jug of wine, don't tell me that i'm fine
i have a problem

but what did you do instead?
you just stayed inside your room and ignored the world that propositioned you,
and what did you tell your friends
when they asked you why the life you've known was at its best when left alone?

but if i played this song for all of you to see
would she notice me?
or would she find some other fool?
who'd use his pseudo-charm to hold her in his selfish arms
and surely do her harm
oh, i can't take this anymore!
no, i can't fucking take this anymore

so i lay my head down and wonder...
i wonder why
all the pressure that you put me under
was enough to cry.

and the times we spent
and your fragrant scent
i will never smell again!

and the lines you wrote
and the words you spoke
were all just fucking lies!

and when i see you now, i can never ever feel what i once thought would pleasure me, no, no, no.
