requisitely sensitive (lyrics)

here comes that old rose tint again
telling me you were my only friend


looked at the world together
said we’d make it better
didn’t know how but we could still pretend


but look how much we fucked it up instead


lack of preoccupation left me open wide
nothing to hang my hopes on, or fill me up with pride


so we made agreements
i sacrificed some freedoms
committed fallacies, but steered clear of crime


but the rose tint always fades away
when the lights come on
funny, i don’t miss it when it’s gone


you said you wrote a letter to me
said when i got back home there it would be


what were you trying?
think you’d get me crying
over all i’d lost in you
when you left me


but all that time and effort
could’ve been better spent
though i picked it off the floor
your words remained unread


and yeah, i might have hesitated
had a second thought, then a grin
should i leave it intact or do i rip it up
before i throw it in the bin?
