Song Description

The frustration of being in love with someone who basically just runs right over you and keeps going.

Story Behind the Song

Office romance with a flighty girl. "I woke up missing you as though I had a right to" -- the relationship was never even solid enough to have earned the right to miss her...


I woke up missing you as though I had a right to
Like I'd open up my eyes and there'd be something to see
But every single morning there's a pillow where my you ought to be
I should have seen it coming and I should have moved over
But I guess I underestimated tonnage and speed
And now there's nothing for it but to lie here under covers and bleed

I always hear voices and they never stop talking
But they never say anything that's not about you
I swear they're trying to kill me with the stupid shit they tell me to do
Well, I knew that you were trouble so I swore I'd die trying
But the trying isn't working and the dying is slow
So I did some spring cleaning and you're welcome to the first thing to go

Take my life
Well hurry up and come and get it
It's out there on the curb lying next to the trash
Take my life
Oh never mind, man, just forget it
It's broken anyway and smells like rotten ass

I wanna find something that will maybe take the edge off
But I can't afford liquor and I never drink beer
But I need some interference so your signal doesn't come in so clear
Well I might try Drano with a 7-Up chaser
It's gotta be beat lying here and thinking of you
So if you're in the neighborhood I got a little present for you

I woke up this morning just as though I had a right to
I don't know what the hell that I expected to see
Cuz every single morning there's a pillow where my you oughta be
