lyrics

Will you edit the photos you took of me
Now that you may never see me again
If I lived near you
There'd be a whole album of them



You finished two and
Sent them to me through text
now I'm gone
what happens with the rest?

Goodbye was a part of hello
It was sold as a package deal
Even though by the first few texts
I could tell how I would feel
That's why people pick the gross ones
So they don't get attached
And they don't end up writing songs
About what they could have had

How am I supposed to let you go
When if we lived in the same place
We very well know
That I'd

call you up again
Cross my fingers you'd be faster than
(Me)

Text you all the time
Think of you whenever mine
(Is buzzing)

Unfortunately, that's not the case
This isn't the way I wish it was
Do me a favor and find a boy
Who can last as long as his picture does

I'm glad
My camera stayed in the house
It eradicates one piece of
Sorting my shit out
I've already got two hundred
Pictures to go through
it would do no good to spend my
Time staring at you

California did me wrong
Did me wrong, yeah
She could have given me
A mean, gross, dumb one
California did me wrong
Did me wrong yeah
Arizona's sitting here
Coming undone

But hey, if you are listening
And you know who you are
Do me a favor and give another boy
Rides in your car
Treat him how you treated me
he won't go away
Have the boy as long as photos stay
