I just remembered that time at the market

snuck up behind me and jumped on my shopping cart

and rolled down aisle five

you looked behind you to smile back at me

crashed into a rack full of magazines

they asked us if we could leave

I can’t remember what went wrong last September

though I’m sure you’d remind me if you had to

our love was comfortable and so broken in

I sleep with this new girl I’m still getting used to

my friends all approve,

say “she’s gonna be good for you”

they throw me high fives

she says the Bible is all that she reads

and prefers that I not use profanity

your mouth was so dirty

life of the party and she swears that she’s artsy

but you could distinguish Miles from Coltrane

our love was comfortable and so broken in

she’s perfect

so flawless

or so they say

she thinks I can’t see the smile that she’s faking

and poses for pictures that aren’t being taken

I loved you

grey sweatpants

no makeup

so perfect

our love was comfortable and so broken in

she’s perfect

so flawless

I’m not impressed

I want you back
