A

Who?

My name is Steven Amirez.

What?

A person walked into me, made their home, trashed the fragile ground, and left it. Now, only scattered ivy remains.

When?

What is time? My world only moved forward for them, and now that is gone. The hourglass has stagnated to a complete halt. Nothing moves anymore. It is all standstill, evermore.

Where?

Where am I at all? My world left me, and now I am simply here. I exist in a new plane, perhaps a unique world called limbo. Physically, I may be here, but my spirit has left. All that remains is a hollow flesh wall.

Why?

His name was Mateo Ramos.

B

Perhaps I’m being melodramatic, I don’t know anymore.

I bet you look back on that day, when I looked you in the eyes and told you my eyes felt locked to you.

I see the way you look at them today, their precious skin, it must be surprising.

I gave you my box of love, and you handed me a silver key and told me to get lost.

You took me, my vulnerable, fragile, complex body and popped it like a translucent balloon.

Like a viper, you double crossed my heart, and to this day, I still feel that pain.

C

[Pre-Chorus]

I still remember those nights and;
How that’s all gone now.
And I might be perfectly okay, but I’m no good.
So now I stare at you, crying to the beat.

[Chorus]

Bet you ruminate about those days where I’d give you my box of love.
Bet you ruminate about those days where I’d give you my box of love.
Now I’m gonna dance and sing and keep you in my heart.
Bet you ruminate about those days where I’d give you my box of love.

D

Tea;
Renegade;
Atrocities;
Ivory monoliths;
Towers, crumbling;
Or perhaps something more.
Read that again, slowly. All of these things can be true.

E

Remember that day we were driving in that old pickup truck.
You were so obsessed with me, everything felt so serene.
When you almost ran a red, just to look over at me.
Remember that stray animal, probably a buck.

Remember when you drove me to that drive-in bar.
I couldn’t keep it together, when you told me those small sentimental things.
“Someone worked hard to make this pie” made me want to fluster and die.
Remember those moments, where everything was perfectly fine.

F

Why did you leave?
Why do you hate me?
I’m sorry.

Sorry.

What does that mean to me?

Nothing.

You left me.

You’ll never receive my box of love again.

G

[Chorus]

Bet you ruminate about those days where I’d give you my box of love.
Bet you ruminate about those days where I’d give you my box of love.
Now I’m gonna dance and sing and keep you in my heart.
Bet you ruminate about those days where I’d give you my box of love.

[Outro]

And now you’ll never think of me, ‘Teo
All those things, now meaning nothing.
I’m sorry for being nothing that you need.
Sorry
