And you say the smell of coffee
Gives you a headache
And that one time in the movies
My laugh made you feel embarrassed
And somewhere along the way
You stopped loving the smell
Of my shampoo
The shape of my smile
My teeth without braces
The color change in my eyes...
Do you still want to wake up
Ten years from now
In our room with the navy blue sheets
And sandy walls
Or did you stop loving the little things entirely?
You cried because you said
That you were scared for us
And we both blamed each other
And I’m sorry
And I still want to be with you
You bought me roses
And your grandma loves me
And I love your laugh
And the look in your eyes
When you see something you really love
But you don’t look at me that way
Maybe you forgot why you love me
And you’re staying because it’s easy
I wish I could remind you
Take you back somehow
To the way we fell in love
Because I am still in love with you
I don’t want to hurt you
So I won’t tell you that
You’re breaking my heart
I’ll just try to be better
