Lyrics

It was a grey sky on a Monday
There was nothing more I could say
so I called you from Ohio
in a parking lot of a motel
I remember how you greeted me
like you knew we were not meant to be
on this phone call after two years of the fighting,
of the mad tears
Remember how I broke your heart?
After all that we've been through,
all the damages I bestowed on you,
all the jealousies you engraved in me
The end was near, it had to be
So I called you from Ohio
in a parking lot of a motel
to say nothing and yet everything
I remember I was trembling
Remember how I broke your heart?
Remember how I broke your heart?
Now I'm drinking to forget you,
spending money,
got a tattoo.
Stayed a weekend up in Oregon,
bought a plane ride to an island
But I stopped first in Toronto,
met a man who almost let me go
Four years later he married me
I am happier than I dreamed I'd be
So you see I had to let you go
in a phone call from Ohio
filled with silence and apologies
Still I loved you as you loved me
Remember how I broke your heart?
