6:17 in the afternoon -
My favorite time of day
6:18 in the garage
Of where you used to stay
At 6:25, it's a memory
I was never meant to share
But since you left with no goodbye
I don't believe you'd care

You left her scared a while ago
I wondered if you'd want to know
Though she's waiting for your letter
I suspect she'd like me better

So now I'm you - no forwarding address
Now I'm you - no regrets, no mess
In a black-and-white facsimile
I'm exactly who I want you to be

6:17 in the afternoon
Three weeks into this crime
Memorized her postal code
As I passed the time
She says she loves the change in you
When you know what you want
And if the back of your mind's too crowded
She'll take a place up front

I know it must sound strange to hear
That I overcame your fear
But every time I write a letter
I suspect she likes you better

'Cause now I'm you - no forwarding address
Now I'm you (or close enough, I guess)
In a pen-and-ink facsimile
I'm exactly who I want you to be

My new hobby
My new friends
Draw you together
And tie up your loose ends
