I write little stories nearly every single day
Some are so good they’d take your breath away
I tell them to myself when I’m falling asleep
Pour hot water and let them steep

We got together I wrote a story
We spent a lifetime inside of me
Funny how life doesn’t live up to the dream
Funny how love turns cold and mean

We didn’t fight and we didn’t cry
And I don’t care if you miss me
I didn’t like the way we turned out
So now I’m rewriting history

Most people say that you oughta live right
Brush your teeth say your prayers and turn out the light
I think I mighta found a better way
Just misremember your terrible days

Cross out the sad parts / Embellish the rest
Pretty soon you’ve made / Fables from a mess

We didn’t cuss and We didn’t fuss
And you were never a mystery
I didn’t like the way we turned out
So now I’m rewriting history

My heart never broke We always spoke
And I don’t care if you kiss me
The story of us fell apart at the end
So now I’m rewriting history

Michael Gruber and Brian Bentley fill out the rhythm section. ... more
