I hate December.

Jimmy Eat World - If You Don't, Don't

what's wrong baby?
don't they treat you like they should?
did you take 'em for it
or every penny that you could
we once walked out on the beach and once I almost touched your hand
oh how I dreamed to finally say such things
then only to pretend

don't you know I'm thinking?
driving 405 past midnight
you know I miss you
Ninth and Ash on a Tuesday night
I would write to you from a museum mile
and toast to you your whisper, your smile
up the stairs at Wheatherford
a ghost each place I hide

(if you don't, don't know why'd you say so?)
would you mean this please if it happens?
(if you don't know why would you say so?)
won't you get your story straight?
if you don't know, honey why'd you just say so?
well I need this now more than I ever did
if you don't, well honey then you don't

I left you waiting
at the least could we be friends?
should have never started
ain't that the way it always ends?
on my life I'll try today
there's so much I've felt I should say but
even if your heart would listen
doubt I could explain

so here we are now
a sip of wine
a sip of water
someday maybe
maybe someday we'll be smarter
and I'm sorry that I'm such a mess
I drank all my money could get
took everything that we had and I never loved you back
