I'm so damn The current mood of augustdreams at

by Jann Arden

How do you cool your lips
after a summer's kiss
how do you rid the sweat
after the body bliss
How do you turn your eyes
from the romantic glare
how do you block the sound
of a voice you'd know anywhere

Oh, I really should have known
by the time you drove me home
by the vagueness in your eyes
your casual good-byes
by the chill in your embrace
the expression on your face
that told me maybe
you might have some advice to give
on how to be

How do you numb your skin
after the warmest touch
how do you slow your blood
after the body rush
how do you free your soul
after you've found a friend
how do you teach your heart it's a crime
to fall in love again

Oh, you probably won't remember me
it's probably ancient history
I'm one of the chosen few
who went ahead and fell for you
I'm out of vogue, I'm out of touch
I fell too fast, I feel too much
I thought that you might have
some advice to give
on how to be

The chill in your embrace, the expression on your face. Those words hit so hard. How did you do it? How could you just hug me and say goodbye? Didn't you hurt? You said you felt that our love was the reason you were created. Were you lying? Don't you mourn for what we were going to share? I wish you all and only the best, but couldn't you fucking bleed for me just a little?

I'm moving on and healing, but sometimes it still hits so hard. It makes me feel weak. I truly wish this were a physical ailment. I've got medication to deal with that kind of pain. But I don't know how to fix this. Dammit.

Y'all have a good weekend, and thanks for reading.
