I wasnít looking for pity
If I was I wouldíve cried on the phone
Do you hear my voice shaking now
You probably canít since you left me here alone

My eyes have grown so tired
So tired of this

Iíll just stay right here while you walk away
Iíve grown accustomed to being left behind
Remember me when youíre laying in your bed
And Iím not against the wall with you

These tears collecting on my pillow
Donít even express what Iím feeling
Why do we cry when weíre sad
But smile and pretend a minute later

My eyes have grown so tired
So tired of this

Iíve come to realize I was never that important
To you.. friends just don't make the cut
All your clocks are in her palm
And Iím just ticking alone until I go off

How can you so easily brush me to the side
Providence doesnít seem so lively anymore
I donít seem so alive anymore
But Iíll keep going on like this until the 16th comes around

When I donít have to even think about you
But we both know I will anyways
Iíll tie these strings around my fingers
To remember to forget about you
