    Half step down // Verse: C Em Am F // Chorus: C G Am F
    - Lyrics -
    Oak feathers lie downtrodden
    Sodden and rotting
    As relics of a summer ending
    Their particles floating
    Through ditch into river
    Like the tattered remains of my memories

    And I still smell you breathing
    Your drool on my pillow
    Your body draped over my twin-size
    The alcohol stains
    That we left for my parents
    And your shirt on the floor at my bedside

    The honk of a Cherokee
    Our eyes bolt awake
    At the horror of our summer ending
    You sprint through the doorway
    And up the stair floorboards
    And I haven’t seen you since

    And I tell all my friends
    That we left on good terms
    But the truth is you have a new boyfriend
    And he doesn’t like me
    And he says you can’t speak to me
    And I texted back just to say

    She loves you
    And I’m glad that she’s with you ‘cause
    She loves you
    And I’m glad that she found you
    ‘Cause you make her happy
    And when I see her smile
    In your arms in a photograph
    I can’t help but start to think
    That maybe it’s better this way
    But I was kind of hoping you’d stay


    I lie awake nightly
    And rubbing my eyes
    To the rhythm of The Postal Service
    The shape of your shadow’s
    Burned into my memory
    And rubbing don’t help to erase

    The stinging red whites ache like
    My elevated heart rate
    In three-quarter time to Los Campesinos!
    I remember the night that I
    Told you I loved you
    At 3 am sitting on your back porch

    I rode 15 miles
    And met you halfway
    Our bikes rusty and our t-shirts sweaty
    The moon was on fire
    And my stomach was empty
    But I’d never felt more whole

    I left with reluctance
    The kiss mark on my neck
    Fueled my journey all the way back home
    Not a day goes by that I don’t
    Think about my best friend
    And I wonder if you ever think of me

    I think one day he’ll be your husband
    And I hope I’m invited to the wedding
    And I’ll call a toast on the day I need it most
    And find closure in finally admitting

    She loves you
    And I’m glad that she’s with you ‘cause
    She loves you
    And I’m glad that she found you
    ‘Cause you make her happy
    And I’ve never seen her eyes
    Glow quite as bright as when she’s next to you
    Or her smile as wide as when she’s next to you
    Or her swell with pride as when your ring is on her finger
    And maybe it’s better this way
    But I’m just glad I got to see you today
