lyrics

My ex just texted twenty minutes ago
Should I look at the phone?
It's been six months that she's left me alone
That she's left me alone

Before three dots she has managed to say
Shewalked by my old place
And I'm stuck still, I'm afraid she might say
What she thinks of those days

If the future grows like branches then I chopped one off too soon
Or I just didn't notice as it withered from the root
From the root
From the root

I ain't done much in a night and a day
I been thinkin' in haze
Close my eyes, kill a couple more hours
In a couple of ways

It ain't get bad til the end of the night
With a belly of wine
When I'm silent in my bed with a voice in my head
Saying you really fucked up this time

If the future grows like branches then I chopped one off too soon
Or I just didn't notice as it withered from the root
From the root
From the root

My ex just texted couple hours ago
Or has it been a couple of days?
I was too fucked up to see her walking away
But the memory stays
