I suppose I must savour the taste of regret
It gives me a dry mouth but I drink it anyway
It blurs up your face; it burns all your letters
It breaks up the hours and it should keep the past away
It should

I remember the night before we never saw you again
when we talked you said you had a plan
A thief with an exit, a liar set on leaving
You laid out the future then took it and ran

And I don’t believe in an afterlife
But it’s 3am and a silent night
When I hear you call
Say you’ve been here for days
You say it’s been so long
it’s been so strange

we fixed the world from an old café sofa
we read all the books so we understood love
It’s those memories that kill me – a knife in the gut
Cause I bled for your life, but that wasn’t enough

And I don’t believe in an afterlife
But it’s 3am and a silent night
When I hear you call
Say you’ve been here for days
You say it’s been so long
it’s been so strange

Can you hear me?
Help me out.
Can you hear me?
Tell me things
Like
what you’ve done with your time;
tell me what might I have done with mine?

I found your letter, the one I can’t answer
The sun’s up but I think I’ll sleep through the day.
I suppose I must favour the taste of regret
Cause it gives me a dry mouth but I drink it anyway.
