  • I was the chap stick in your purse, to keep you smooth
    I was a finger in your throat, to keep you cute
    My liver hates you for walking out on us
    My kidney?s drowning in a pool of a long lost love

    I stole your perfume to spray in my room
    You will always be here

    So much for the past year
    I poured it down the drain with all the alcohol and pain I got from
    Your eyes, oh, your eyes
    I'm burning out my bedside, and I'm rotting out my insides slowly

    I was the hand that held your hair back from your face
    Now I must forget the way you taste

    I stole your perfume to spray in my room
    You will always be here

    So much for the past year
    I poured it down the drain with all the alcohol and pain I got from
    Your eyes, oh, your eyes
    I'm burning out my bedside, and I'm rotting out my insides slowly

    I love you so damn much, I?ll even start to pray
    I?ll put my faith in all your bullshit if it means you'll stay
    I love you so damn much, I?ll even start to pray
    I?ll put my faith in all your bullshit if it means you'll stay

    So much for the past year
    I poured it down the drain with all the alcohol and pain I got from
    Your eyes, oh, your eyes
    I'm burning out my bedside, and I'm rotting out my inside
    I'm burning out my bedside, and I'm rotting out my insides

    I love you so much, I started praying
    I love you so much that I started praying
    I love you so much, I started praying
    I love you so much that I started praying Writer/s: DANIEL GERARD TRAPP, GARRETT MICHAEL ZABLOCKI, HEATH MATTHEW SARACENO, JAMES ANTHONY BUDDY NIELSEN, MICHAEL JOHN GLITA

  • Jena from Fairborn, Oha girl and guy broke up and they fueled each others addictions. He encouraged her bulimia and she supplied alcohol and drugs. They broke up and hes trying to reason with her to get back together so they can continue to supply each others addiction. He believes that stealing her perfume will help him manage his addiction.
    "So Much for the past year,
    I poured it down the drain with all the alcohol and pain I got from,
    Your Eyes, Oh Your Eyes.
    Im burning out my bedside,
    And Im rotting out my insides,
    Im burning out my bedside,
    And Im rotting out my insides."

    The beginning of these lyrics refers to how he's trying to kick his addictions and the last part is him describing what his withdrawal symptoms feel like to him.

    This is what I got from the song.
