i've got everything but it's just such a lonely night.
i've only spoken to matt twice in the past 4 months, and
those conversations haven't been deep or anything, but i

there must be some reason that neither one of us has moved
not that i haven't been "loose with my affection," but

Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry.
Here's to goodbye,
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon
