At a big wooden table in an office off of Ann Street
It might as well be the ocean for as far as you feel from me
But honey, baby, please
Shit, I’m sorry
I didn’t mean to call you honey

I trace the grain with my finger
Keep my eyes low, stir my coffee
I should have let you go sooner
I know that I made this harder than it had to be
And I’m sorry, I’ve been the same asshole since you met me

You were the tail lights, like a lifeline when the storm arrived
I followed you all night, ’til the rain, died like a long goodbye

I tune out while the lawyers start to rewrite all our history
The things that we built together get torn down brick by brick and dispersed out evenly
Burn the memories
Spread the ashes over Fort Greene

You were the tail lights, like a lifeline when the storm arrived
I followed you all night, ’til the rain died, like a long goodbye
And then at sunrise, in the daylight, I watched as you pulled aside
I loved you like tail lights, like a lifeline, like a long goodbye

Come on, just sign the papers
Don’t make me stay in the room
I don’t want this to be the way that I remember you

Come on, just sign the papers
Don’t make me stay in the room
In a slant of sunlight I watched pools of ink dry blue

Come on, just sign the papers
Don’t make me stay in the room
I can’t keep my hands steady but I press my pen down too

Come on, just sign the papers
Don’t make me stay in the room
From the end of my name I swore I saw daylilies bloom

Come on, just sign the papers
Let’s find an end to the gloom
I’m sorry for every single thing I put you through
