  • Memorize the bathwater, memorize the air
    There'll come a time I'll wanna know I was here
    Names on the door frames, inches and ages
    Handprints in concrete, at the softest stages

    I don't know why I don't try harder
    I feel like throwing towels into water

    Get it down to nothing, everything that matters
    Fever flashes, eyelashes and traffic patterns
    Humidity, history, chemistry and panic
    Swimsuits in windows of electric minivans

    I don't know why I don't try harder
    I've been going down some, some strange water

    Move forward now, there's nothing to do
    Can't turn around, I can't follow you
    Your coat's in my car, I guess you forgot
    It's crazy the things we let go of

    It finally hits me, a mile's drive
    The sky is leaking, my windshield's crying
    I'm feeling sacred, my soul is stripped
    Radio's painful, the words are clipped

    The grief it gets me, the weird goodbyes
    My car is creeping, I think it's dying
    I'm pulling over, until it heals
    I'm on a shoulder, of lemon fields

    What was I even leaving for?
    I keep going back and forth
    I think now I'm about to see
    Didn't know how sad it'd be

    Memorize the bathwater, memorize the air
    There'll come a time I'll wanna know I was here
    Names on the door frames, inches and ages
    Handprints in concrete, at the softest stages

    I don't know why I don't try harder
    I feel like throwing towels into water

    Move forward now, there's nothing to do
    Can't turn around, and I can't follow you
    Your coat's in my car, I guess you forgot
    It's crazy the things we let go of

    It finally hits me, a mile's drive
    The sky is leaking, my windshield's crying
    I'm feeling sacred, my soul is stripped
    Radio's painful, the words are clipped

    The grief it gets me, the weird goodbyes
    My car is creeping, I think it's dying
    I'm pulling over, until it heals
    I'm on a shoulder, of lemon fields

    The grief it gets me, the weird goodbyes
    My car is creeping, I think it's dying
    I'm pulling over, until it heals
    I'm on a shoulder, of lemon fields
