Her Words Destroyed My Planet

Album: My Dinosaur Life (2010)

  • Maybe you were right after all,
    Maybe I'm just bad news,
    I've been drowning in memories
    Call it residual blues.
    I fell asleep watching Veronica Mars again.
    (Hey!)

    I still fuss with that tourniquet,
    And tried to squeeze in your dreams.
    Slung it on- it's a perfect fit.
    What do you suppose that means?

    My parents keep asking when you're planning on coming around.

    If we'd only stayed together
    I might not have fallen apart
    But the words you said destroyed my planet.
    I stall before I start.
    I stall before I start anything at all.

    Got a job at uncommon grounds,
    I finally shaved off that beard.
    I sold my Xbox to Jimmy down the street.
    Hell, I even quit smoking weed.
    I'm taking an online course- I'm learning to speak Japanese.

    If we'd only stayed together
    I might not have fallen apart
    But the words you said destroyed my planet.
    I stall before I start.
    I stall before I start anything at all.

    The things that used to mean so much to me,
    Have gone the way of dinosaurs, hopes and dreams, and everything.
    All I want for you to be is happy or something,
    I guess anything is better than the time you spent hoping I'd get it sorted out.

    I sent you a post card
    But the post office sent it back
    They said the buildings been torn down.
    I just miss what I thought we would have.

    If we'd only stayed together
    I might not have fallen apart
    But the words you said destroyed my planet.
    It's all my fucking fault!

    If we'd only stayed together
    I might not have fallen apart
    But the words you said destroyed my planet.
    I stall before I start.
    I stall before I start anything at all. Writer/s: Jesse Mack Johnson, Joshua Allen Cain, Justin C Pierre, Matthew Scott Taylor, Tony Richard Thaxton
