Lyrics

Although advertised I denied he was a leaving man
we in these parts are always wishing West
I've got both ankles in a rent
invitation sparks resent
I'll work at a fucking gym until I am free again

But no lover looked me in the eye to try and read the guard
hungry for what time would take away
but romance with limitation is a dance with provocation
conscious of him being there
his absence all I was aware

Although you think it was a waste of time, you gotta understand
I was okay with how things were with Sam

To salvage all the time I had I melted in his couch
to pass a pipe and binge watch Planet Earth
he'd rub my head he'd rub my feet
but wouldn't take me out to eat
I'd wear his flannel shirts to bed over and over and over again

I'd watch him type his friends up that he'd surely be by
Wonder if they were bummed at his no show
He said he hated making plans so I stopped asking him questions
I swear sometimes I believed he was becoming nuts for me

Although you think I was a fool, you gotta understand
I was okay with how things were with Sam

I sewed him tender inside jokes and wrapped them in a box
I'm pretty sure they're strewn across his floor
We haven't done it yet this year, he said it was getting weird
And what's the point of getting on when tomorrow I'll be gone

We kissed good bye beside the car I couldn't read his gaze
I tried to seem aloof watching him go
You'll hear from me he said, I haven't heard from him yet
People pleaser fickle mistress, but we held too tight to forget right

Although you think I'm sad you gotta understand
I was okay with how things were with Sam
I'm okay, I'm okay
