lyrics

On the first night you told me that you felt a spark
On the second night you seemed like you were so in love
On the third night we went walking through the Highline park
We laughed as we watched the traffic from above

I don't know what shifted
When did everything become so blah?
All I know is that we drifted
By the eighth night of Hanukkah
We may be the chosen people
But you didn't choose me, no not at all

On the fourth night you said that you were running late
On the fifth night you asked if I was really wearing that
On the sixth night you said you didn’t know it was a date
I fumed as you talked all night about your cat

I don't know what shifted
When did everything become so blah?
All I know is that we drifted
By the eighth night of Hanukkah
We may be the chosen people
But you didn’t choose me, no not at all

On the seventh night I told you that I needed to talk
You said that you were busy washing your socks
On the eighth night I texted you that we were through
You wrote back "k thanks bye it was cool knowing you"

I think I know what shifted
I know I made the right call
Because it makes sense that we drifted
By the eighth night of Hanukkah
We may be the chosen people
And I didn’t choose you, no not at all
