Hannah Simpson threw some beautiful cello on this song of mine.


You call me now just to fool around
The phone falls silent when I leave town
The moon starts the night and the sun goes to dust
And there's asteroids 300 hundred miles from Earth
And you learn how to live with a broken leg
Back and forth somehow nothing makes sense
A ghost follows me to sleep, I don't sleep

I've never been me but you ohhh you
You're a trainwreck of envy like a blood line that never came through
I never had fun but the clothes came off
And there's no one there to pick them up
I wander round naked with a conscience full of guilt
And you're driving back home proud of yourself
And I'm drunk and so abused

Call me the victim I refuse to play the part
I never stopped when you decided to start
Like the death of a friend that I forget
What happened then used to happen next
And no one knows what was said
But we did we did
And I'll throw you in the garden at the center of heaven
To prove to you how evil I am
You can take me where you want but I'll kill you where I please
I'm not dying here but it's awfully close you see.
