lyrics

Please, don't recklessly go back to fixating
I'm right there just past your fingers lingering
Force the words out of your lungs as I plunge them in
I've buried all I could say, don't you have anything
Cause I took credit for your love and for my distance
For the moments that paused us and the endings that came
Every little thing that you got and never wanted
Every little thing that you needed and never got, Oh

Eagerly you stoop to do what's right
Rise up over me to tower and sway and fight
I don't care much for making this more than it has to be
But I do care that you know the score I'm settling
Cause I broke myself much more than you ever could have
And you took the high road you shoved it in my face
Every little thing I fucked up and did wrong
Every little thing that matters so much more

That little green dress you can keep it on all night
The scent of you caught on the subway gets me alright
We feel, we move, the city becomes the towns we once were from
You're still here, though we are not

Cause I was the bird you left broken in a strange nest
And you were the wind that always carried me home
Every little thing that you built and I burned down
Every little thing that we swore and you broke
Cause I still sit waiting, reeling on your front porch
Like a bible in the bedside table growing mold
Every little thing that I wanted and never gave you
Every little thing that I wanted and you said no
Cause I was the ghost caught chasing after moonlight
You were still sun-soaked flesh and bone
Every little thing I loved left when you did, but
Every little thing I love is still you
