Lyrics

i cleaned out my notebook
every piece of you in there
i cleaned out my closet
all the clothes you used to wear
i cleaned out my head
of every loving memory
i tried to wear my heart out
but all it did was bleed

i ripped the sheets right off the bed
your hair just stayed stuck in
i ripped the pillows all in two
your scent was religion
 i shattered every dish
into the kitchen sink
i broke up every glass
that I ever saw you drink

nothing gets rid of you
no, nothing seems to work
I wonder if I’d kept it all
then maybe you’d return

i tried so hard to teach my tongue
to never speak your name
and rinse out from my hateful mouth
every arc of spit and blame
i went to wash my hands
cause they had held to you for years
i tried to wash my cheeks
because I’m tired of all these tears

nothing gets rid of you
no, nothing seems to work
I wonder if I’d kept it all
then maybe you’d return

last I hocked the golden band
on the day the papers came
and if I’ve gotten rid of you
why do i feel the same?

I gave up, surrendered all
just to find a little peace
I hoped with everything now gone
that I could find release

nothing gets rid of you
no, nothing seems to work
I wonder if I’d kept it all
then maybe you’d return

nothing gets rid of you
no, nothing seems to work
I wonder if I’d kept it all
then maybe you’d return
