A song about jealousy, and letting go. comments are appreciated, thank you.

you could of spilled my blood in an ink well
but I can't seem to figure out
how the gray checkered marks
on the soles of my feet
stain and won't come out

I can't keep passing up
all this falling down
to a broken headache's
breaking sound
don't sell it and don't say a word

I think I've found the downside of breathing
I'm more pessimistic than I thought
it takes an optimist to slit their lungs
I guess I'm more up beat than I thought
I guess that's a start

I can't keep passing up
all this falling down
to a broken headache's
breaking sound
don't sell it and don't say a word

This is the best day you've ever seen
your lips are pinned down and your heart's with the queen
I hope you didn't waste your time on me

I can't keep passing up
all this falling down
to a broken headache's
breaking sound
don't sell it and don't say a word

This is the best day you've ever seen
your lips are pinned down and your heart's with the queen
I hope you didn't waste your time on me
This is the best day you've ever seen
your lips are pinned down and your heart's with the queen
I hope you didn't waste your time on me
