February 14th,
In life you will always need to make sacrifices. Sometimes small sacrifices, sometime big. Also compromising. The only way to ever get what you want is to compromise.


I stood in the rain
You stole my umbrella last time you came over
You always leave me in the cold
You always leave me all alone

I wanted to watch cartoons
You said that you wanted to watch the news
So we made a compromise and watched Saturday Night Live
And I cried in the bathroom
But not because of you
Yeah I’m over you
I swear

If I had stayed nothing would be the same
If I had stayed nothing would be the same

And that apartment
The one that you wanted to get downtown in the pearl
Where we could hang out by the water
And I could play my guitar for you
Yeah I could write another song for you
Yeah you’d make me write another song for you

But nothing ever seems to work
(I really don’t know)
The way that you planned it
(How bout we just take it slow)
The way you expect it
The way it’s suppose to
(I just want this to go)
The way that you want it to
