I remember hearing you say: count on me

A shadow sat down at my side

I could not see

You could talk the moon out of the sky

And the birds out of the trees

And still just be the one who leaves


It’s been sixteen million, fourteen thousand seven hundred seconds 

Since I realised you’d only ever care for number one


I can still remember how you’d justify

Every single sentence to start with I

And look here comes the moon out of the sky

Here comes the birds out of the trees

But I’m the one who’s saying leave


It’s been sixteen million, fourteen thousand seven hundred seconds

Since I realised you’d only ever care for number one
