When I was 18 I called my best friend in tears
Halfway through a 12 pack of cheap gas station beer
I told her he left, told her he was gone,
Told her I couldn’t breathe, that my chest felt all wrong.
It took a long time, she gave me a warm shove
Taught me that level of pain only happens with your first love
Since then I’ve loved and I’ve lost but I’ve never hurt that bad again
In fact sometimes in love, I find myself playing pretend.
And it’s been 2 years since the last love took the centerpiece of my heart,
The one you need to stop the whole thing from falling apart
And I thought I was invincible, I thought I was strong,
But you left yesterday night too and now my chest feels all wrong.
