Lord Toph – Articles In The Cellar lyrics

It took more than just a couple of years
To get over the pain
To swallow the tears
You can’t imagine all I tried to do
To try to love myself
As much as I loved you
And it’s strange how you can lose yourself
And put too much of your faith
In somebody else
Especially when they spend all your time
Filling your head
With weak excuses and lies

You think you’re so clever
Discarding me with
Articles in your cellar
If I wasn’t to know better
I’d be stored there with
Articles in your cellar

I used to sit and just stare at my phone
Hoping you’d call – when I was alone
Whenever I was alone
Thank god I could finally wise up
And figure it out
That I was all on my own
You could have saved me a great deal of trouble
By letting me know
That there’d be no forever
If I wasn’t to know better
I’d wind up being trash like the articles in your cellar



It makes no sense to keep me there
It’s so damn clear you never cared
You may as well just clear the air and stop
