Silver Sharpie on a Mall Map

lyrics

I often wonder if you still wear that shirt that I liked
With the sleeves rolled up to your elbows
And I wonder how many boys I’ll fall in love with
Who will wear that same blue shirt.
I’m sure, it’ll be one too many.

And I am constantly falling in love with sweet boys
Who have bags under their eyes,
I’ve been unpacking,
Laying bare bleached bones on the ground
Apologizing for every crack in my spine.

I’m so sorry if I seem uncomfortable,
It’s because I am.
I am a coward,
I will never let you know
How I have pictured your hands holding books.

And I am constantly falling in love with sweet boys
Who have bags under their eyes,
I’ve been unpacking,
Laying bare bleached bones on the ground
Apologizing for every crack in my spine.

I have spent my time collecting creases & lines,
You are a mall map marked up bring sharpie ink.
I am trying to politely ask you for directions in the street.
I am trying to ask you for directions.
