i pull the curtain open
i dont like to look outside
all the window lights are off
all the street lamps harsh
is it early in the morning
or very late at night
it doesn't matter
i'm alone and it's dark right now

can you remember
when i cut my eye open?

i stretched out on my bed
tried to will my legs to life
i thought of a picture
someone took of the two of us
you were smiling at the stranger
i was staring at the ground
because i hated how i smiled
even more with you around

can you remember
when i cut my eye open
