I'd sleep in your bed,
I'd get lost in your skin
You'd get stuck in my head,
You were my reason to live
I'd stay up for your calls,
I'd kiss your chapped lips
You were affectionate,
You knew that I exist

I can't handle happiness,
I can't see this moment for what it is
I can't handle happiness,
I can't maintain my relationships,
i can't handle happiness,
I can't get past my present tense

Now I sleep alone in my bed,
Now I've lost your skin
Now I'm stuck in my head,
I have no reason to live
Now we don't talk at all,
I don't kiss your chapped lips
Now you don't know me at all,
Now I don't exist

I can't move forward while looking back,
So maybe I'll try just staying right here
