Dear You (An Apology)

Dear you
I should've known that this letter would reach me one of these days
But who knew
That when all was said and done I'd have just so much to say?
The world is still turning, that may come as a surprise
With our forests on fire and our congress of lies
But I'm doing alright, life's been okay
And now that that's over I just have to say that
I don't remember you feeling this way
Your letter was dark and just laced with pain
You describe a world filled entirely with gray
And to that I just have to say

I wanna apologize to the girl with the chip on her shoulder
A minor melody stuck in her brain
No mattеr what you wrote me, that wasn't like you wеre living
Just a movie turned sour and stuck on one frame
I wanna apologize to the girl who couldn't picture forever

You're scared and you're sad, but you'll keep it together
I'm glad life is going alright
For you

Dear you
This isn't my place to say and this letter will reach you much too late
But dear you
I'm disappointed in myself for not understanding your cry for help
And I know in your mind you are right and angry
At this world that has burned you time and again
But your problems aren't solved with disdain for yourself
Or forcing the girl to be someone else
I wanna apologize to the girl with the chip on her shoulder
A minor melody stuck in her brain
No matter what you wrote me, that wasn't like you were living
Just a movie turned sour and stuck on one frame
I wanna apologize to the girl who couldn't picture forever

You're scared and you're sad, but you'll keep it together
I'm glad life is going alright
For you

She's scoffing and he's laughing and her smile means nothing but lies
You know nothing except your disguise
Of a girl who's doing just fine

So can I apologize to the girl whose life I am living?
With whom my future is one and the same?
For all your epiphanies, you couldn't see you were sinking
I'm sorry you couldn't see the person you became
I wanna apologize to the girl with the chip on her shoulder
A minor melody stuck in her brain
No matter what you wrote me, that wasn't like you were living
Just a movie turned sour and stuck on one frame
I wanna apologize to the girl who couldn't picture forever

You're strong and you're sad and you're doing much better
I'm glad life is going alright
For you
