I've been listening to a lot of Into It. Over It recently because I'm planning on seeing them play soon. And catching up on all of their songs is making me remember a lot of the old songs I'd listen to in dire times. In this case, Ravenswood, captures a time in my life where I wanted to leave a relationship but I didn't have the heart or the strength to tell the other person.
When I put that down on paper (or Internet paper for that matter), it seems like such a shitty thing to do to someone else. But the feelings are always so more complex than "I don't have the heart to tell you how I feel". Break ups in general are intense and extremely difficult and I'm sure I don't need to tell you guys that.
But if you find yourself in a relationship that you want to end but for some reason you can't tell them that leaving is your plan, give this one a listen.
For a moment, I'm seeing you too clear. I'm fighting back your tears with simple spirits and jokes. But in the lines between what I read and yours seeI don't have it in me anymore. To tell you I've had too much. To tell you it's time to leave.
