We spent seasons together
Freezing in parking lots
Clinging on to teenage years
And I always had to hear songs that you liked
And I'd just tap my foot along
I always tap my foot along

I wish that I could be something you'd always want to keep
And I just wish that I could stop thinking
You'd walk through the rain for anyone but me
Don't act like things would have stayed the same
(you know you'd never stay)
'Cause all you're good at is changing
And all I do is complain
(and sit here in the rain)

All I can ask is
All I can think is
All I can ask is why..

Why can't I try?
Why can't I fight?
My skin and bones are just outlines.
(I can't feel my outlines)

Everyone watches, but nobody listens
And making an effort is just interference
When what we've come to know
Is avoidance is what you need to grow
So I guess I'll just sit here and melt with the snow
