Lyrics

Sit behind that desk like you don't care
reading those prose poems by Baudelaire
When I asked for novels you pointed upstairs
and used a pencil to tie up your black hair

And now I can't sleep
It's more than skin deep
I feel it way down in my bones

Your faded pink cardigan
is torn at the sleeve
You're breaking my heart again
I get no reprieve
I'm playing the part again
of boy in too deep
Your faded pink cardigan
this memory I keep

I know a girl who knows your ex-boyfriend
she says you chewed him up and spit him out again
I don't care if I end up like him
Oh, use me up and tear me limb from limb
Oh, lay me to waste
I just want a taste
of all those secrets hidden underneath

Your faded pink cardigan
is torn at the sleeve
You're breaking my heart again
I get no reprieve
I'm playing the part again
of boy in too deep
Your faded pink cardigan
this memory I keep

The other night you let me walk you home
You said you didn't want to be alone
You kissed me on the cheek outside your place
You said next time you might not be so chaste
Then you whispered goodnight
Did I hear you right
When you said that you hoped you'd see me soon?

Your faded pink cardigan
is torn at the sleeve
You're breaking my heart again
I get no reprieve
I'm playing the part again
of boy in too deep
Your faded pink cardigan
this memory I keep

Tried to go and see you yesterday
They said that you had gone and moved away
I knew it wouldn't last but that's ok
Oh, go to New York, get your MFA
If I see you again in London or Brooklyn
I promise I will try to play it cool

Your faded pink cardigan
is torn at the sleeve
You're breaking my heart again
I get no reprieve
I'm playing the part again
of boy in too deep
Your faded pink cardigan
this memory I keep
