On the day that I had to leave this town behind
I left a few things in my desk drawer for you to find
The first thing on that list was an iron maiden picture disc
That's a thing that brought me comfort on many a night,
so I left it for you, to listen through

You know it's not that bad, the little life we had

The next thing on that list was a painting of me standing out in the rain
Given to me by an old friend from happy forgotten days
It always made you so uncomfortable to hear me speak her name
So maybe if I leave it here I can ease your pain

You know it's not that bad, the little life we had
If I could change one thing.....

The last thing on that list was a little note I never gave to you
inside it were all the nice things that you wanted me to say to you
inked and penned in lines and lies ready for your hungry eyes
to absorb the false information, that'll keep you reassured for years

My dear
But you're never reassured,
and you are insecure,
don't repeat lives, repeat lines, never stutter
When you speak my name you shudder
