lyrics

I brush my teeth
And put the book I’m reading
Back on the shelf
Then dial six numbers on the phone
Before I catch myself

For the first time in seven months
I can go straight to bed
No need to call you up
And document the day’s events
I meant it when I said that
This would be our final fight
So take this silence as my way to say
So long, goodnight

From here on out my time is my own
I think of you whenever the phone rings
Now I know I miss you

I figure I’m long overdue
To spend some time with my friends
As retribution for the parties
That I didn’t attend
I’m sure they understood
That I could never follow through
Out of the obligation
To devote my time to you

From here on out I’m making amends
It’s like the old days
Back with my friends again
Now I know I miss you

From here on out it’s “me” and not “us”
So how come
All they want to discuss is you?
Now I know I miss you

I’ve had a lot of time
To think about my life
Suddenly simple and convenient
But I can’t shake this feeling
Faintly bittersweet
Somehow incomplete without you

It may amaze you to discover
That my life can be ran
Without the constant arguments
About our future plans

From here on out I’m playing by ear
I’ve known you exactly a year today
Now I know I miss you

From here on out it’s out of my hands
I wouldn’t mind
Discussing those plans again
Now I know I miss you
Now I know I miss you
Now I know I love you.
