The Great Perhaps is what I set out for that today
And matter of fact, I may have found it in the most peculiar way
Her eyes were green
And her smirk was mean.
I was a drizzle, she was a hurricane.

And now I'm looking for something that I can't find
And I know that we don't have that much time together
She taught me everything I knew about
Crawfish and kissing and pink wine and poetry
And she, she made me different.
And now I'm looking for something that won't find
And I know that we don't have that much time together
She taught me everything I knew.

When she asked me to kiss her it took me by surprise
Tried to look away but I couldn't avert my eyes
My laugh was nervous
I didn't deserve this
I was Rhode Island, she was Alaska.

About cigarettes and labyrinths
And anything that is or isn't complex


Emancipation Proclamation (original)

I deleted your mix CD from my iPod
You know the one from my birthday when you thought
I would always be on your side
Along for this hard ride

But you complained about everything and everyone
Made jokes about your friends just for fun

You were selfish
You were hopeless
You were unwilling to hear your faults
But we stuck around
Didn't try to bring you down
But you, you were bankrupt
Made mistakes but
You didn't know and you didn't care
You were not deserving
You were not deserving of us.

Drove around with you while you spilled your problems
Knew that there wasn't just one way to solve them
You'd better let me explain
You need to
Stop posting Craigslist ads
Stop trying to blame your dad
And stop needing boys to tell you you're worth
Stop backstabbing Jaymes
Stop saying Greg has changed
And stop calling guys your ex after just one date.
For you it might be too late.
