You said I was the most the most the most Beautiful girl in the world Because I am the kind who's blind at night I went and took you at your word I'm also the kind who sits and cries I'm also the kind that toys with knives And I'm somehow the kind who's still so surprised To find that you have lied The dregs of what's left my ex collects Sisters take me in their arms And I'm still waking up; I drink water from cups And make it through weekdays unarmed At night when the house is dark and still And no one can hear me, I hope you will Cause that's when it hits me-- I'm conscious, still And also, you're not mine

I come to you through lens on lens I come to you through the minds of friends When I come to you, I come out blurred When I come to you, I come out blurred I come to you through words in words I come to you through thoughts all obscured When I come to you, I come out blurred When I come to you, I come out blurred And this little line I draw outside your edge You drive yourself between us like a wedge And this little line I trace This little life I make Is it mine to make? I come to you through word of mouth I run through you; it just gets out When I get to you, I don't make sense When I get to you, I don't make sense This circle that I drew Outside of me; away from you Oh this little line I trace You drove yourself between us And you break us and you leave us I come to you, a quiet car I come to you from the dark, without knowing that When I get to you, I'm not at home When I'm next you, I'm all alone And these little glass that shattered on the floor Who let you walk straight through that china door Hours after I am still awake Oh those little hearts you take Were they yours to break?

June wants to sit by me She wants to talk about the things gone wrong I just want to be alone; I haven't been alone in so long Jamie took my shoulders and he shook me and he shouted so I bent my head And now when I recount it I can't recall a word he said And I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I will still be sad Jane called me late, she said she kissed him, said she touched him, loved the one I love Some girls won't be satisfied with one heart of gold! One is never enough And Johnny called as if it never happened, as if everything was just the same Johnny, how do I put this? It's best for both of us if you forget my name And I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I will still be sad And mom says, "Put your head down and get through it. Just get through it." I don't know how to break it to her--I can't do it! In the middle of the day, I find I'm sitting on the floor Taking every kitchen knife right out of every kitchen drawer And I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I'll still be sad I'll stop crying but I will still be sad

What Car 03:17
What car is the getaway? What ship ports at home? What foot walks that lonely road? Is it even alone? But I don't dare go in The road I'd take, I only walk in sin So I don't dare go in What car is the getaway? What flight takes me there? Where land all these particles? Is it even a where? But I don't dare, don't dare My mother cares; she cares No I don't dare; don't dare No don't dare; don't dare No don't dare; don't dare My mother cares; she cares

I bike to the park in pools of dark Feel like a person tonight I'm coming to terms with stings and burns This is just part of my life I'm not gonna change; I've stayed the same So being alive just means living through pain I live in this body; I answer that name
