title and registration lyrics – death cab for cutie

the glove compartment is inaccurately named
and everybody knows it.
so i’m proposing a swift orderly change.

cause behind its door there’s nothing to keep my fingers warm
and all i find are souvenirs from better times
before the gleam of your taillights fading east
to find yourself a better life.

i was searching for some legal doc*ment
as the rain beat down on the hood
when i stumbled upon pictures i tried to forget
and that’s how this idea was drilled into my head

cause it’s too important
to stay the way it’s been

there’s no blame for how our love did slowly fade
and now that it’s gone it’s like it wasn’t there at all
and here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
lying awake at night

there’s no blame for how our love did slowly fade
and now that it’s gone it’s like it wasn’t there at all
and here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
lying awake at night (up all night)
when i’m lying awake at night.
