Sick On Valentine's?


You're sick on Valentine's?

Seems kinda' convenient for you

If you really don't like me after all

But I made it through the night without you

And I didn't even ball

God, roses are expensive

Coffee would's been WAY cheaper

But you're obviously not faking it

You took the day off

But now you wanna move to Lake County


I guess we really won't ever become anything


____will we?

I guess this is just a Valentine's training

Since it's been 8 years for me

You already had a family anyways

You can't be the one


This is no fun

Staring at your tits

__and all I wanna do is "fuck"

But I'll behave

You hope to be recovered by Saturday

But knowing my Higher Power

You know

Thank you. But she's gone now. She chose somebody else.
