The things I miss

- Holding hands
- Having someone to dry my tears
- Connecting the freckle dots
- Talking about dolls while he plays the green ukulele
- Having a reason to be late for work
- The things we did when we were alone
- His DNA

On repeat:
On repeat
Volume 1, track 6 "I Don't Want to Get Over You"

I don't want to get over you
I guess I could take a sleeping pill
And sleep at will
And not have to go through what I go through
I guess I should take Prozac, right
And just smile all night
At somebody new
Somebody not too bright but sweet and kind
Who would try to get you off my mind
I could leave this agony behind
Which is just what I'd do if I wanted to
But I don't want to get over you
'cause I don't want to get over love
I could listen to my therapist
Pretend you don't exist
And not have to dream of what I dream of
I could listen to all my friends
And go out again
And pretend it's enough
Or I could make a career of being blue
I could dress in black and read Camus
Smoke clove cigarettes and drink vermouth
Like I was 17
That would be a scream
But I don't want to get over you
