Here are your things
Thought I’d bring ‘em to you
I don’t know what this means…
There’s just some closets I’m going through
I’m getting rid of some stuff I can’t keep anymore
Oh yeah, here’s the key to your door

‘Cause you don’t want me like I want you
And you don’t need me like I need you
And I can’t go on like this
Wanting something I can’t have
So here’s your key, babe
You can have it back

Remember this card?
I made especially for you
Why is this so hard?
I’m just doing what I have to do
Here’s a shell from that trip we took down at the shore
Another thing I can’t keep anymore


There’s a saying that makes sense to me:
Throw out the house if you loose the key
I think that might apply to you
But I want to be wrong, I want you to prove
Your love is true
Show me it’s true, tell me it’s true
Prove to me

So what do you think?
Am I totally off base?
You didn’t even blink
Or change the look on your face
All I know is my love for your is real to the core
And I can’t remember life before (But you…)
