You Moved Away

Album: Thank You For Today (2018)

  • You sold you records by the pile
    For they were only yours for a while
    You placed your furniture in the yard
    And it was gone within the hour

    When you moved away
    All your friends came over and you told them what to take
    When you moved away
    Everyone thought it was a mistake

    You mopped floors and filled the cracks
    To get your security deposit back
    You closed your account at the bank
    You checked your tires and filled the tank

    When you moved away
    All of your friends got drunk and one by one begged you to stay
    When you moved away
    They all felt irrationally betrayed

    Since you moved away
    I walk past your vacant apartment almost every day
    When you moved away
    You left this town with such an empty space Writer/s: Benjamin Gibbard
