I found a letter that said:
I'm sorry that you were asleep when I wrote these words down,
You'd think I'd ought to be used to that by now.
But save for a few of those late night episodes,
Missed opportunities, and "I Don't Cares,
There's not a lot that I feel obliged to share or talk about.

I'll have my brother stop by this Saturday to pick up my things,
Just make sure you're not there.
This may sound bad, don't take it the wrong way..
I love you, however, you hold me down
You hold me down
You hold me down
You hold me down.

You're the echoes of my everything,
You're the emptiness the whole world sings at night.
You're the laziness of afternoon,
You're the reason why I burst and why I bloom
How will I break the news to you?
How will I break the news to you?

Cancel our dinner with Max and Coraline
Feed Jackies gerbil
And try to stay clean
We'll talk it over after i've had some time alone to sort it out
You hold me down
You hold me down
You hold me down
You hold me down.


You're the echoes of my everything,
You're the emptiness the whole world sings at night.
You're the laziness of afternoon,
You're the reason why I burst and why I bloom
You're the leaky sink of sentiment,
You're the failed attempts I never could forget.
You're the metaphors I can't create to comprehend this curse that I call love..
How will I break the news to you?
How will I break the news to you?
How will I break the news to you?
How will I break the news to you?
How will I break the news to you?

    I have always thought this song was about someone trying to figure out a way to tell someone else that they are dying... Maybe not, but now that is ingrained in my memory. I know it's a bit of a depressing way to look at it, but my first horse had just been put down when i had just heard the song, so that must have influenced it... :(
