List of Regrets
It Doesn't Mean The Same  

Music & Lyrics by: J. Ketchmark

She only calls me when she needs company
Likes to keep her distance safe
Trys to drown herself in all the things that she should be
Still convinced it’s not all in vein
She likes to count the stars from her balcony
Still can’t escape her Mississippi ways
She keeps putting me off for the day
That she’s sure she’ll come to see
Telling me that
She’s the only one
That’s keeping it straight


But I can’t tell her why
It’s so cold in December
I can’t give advice
On how things are meant to change
Should I repeat the times
That she forgets to remember
Even now
It doesn’t mean The Same


She doesn’t like to air her dirty laundry
Said she’d just be starting the game
And all but her eyes seem to ignore me
Keeping her affection off display
Sparing time between cigarettes and rosaries
And claiming that it’s
The only way
She’s keeping faith


But I can’t tell her why
It’s so cold in December
I can’t give advice
On how things are meant to change
Should I repeat the times
That she forgets to remember
Even now
It doesn’t mean


That what’s not spoken has been unsaid
And I think she knows
That I can see past the face she shows
How her act goes
When she confides all her faults
Her sun and her salt underneath it all
To me
