Evaporated Lyrics

Play "Evaporated"
on Amazon Music

What I've kept with me
And what I've thrown away
And where the hell I've ended up
On this glary random day
Were the things I really cared about
Just left along the way
For being too pent up and proud
Woke up way too late
Feeling hung over...

    Loss about sums it up. Best breakup song ever. I discovered it after my last most painful breakup over a decade ago, and even though the acuteness of that pain has long passed, the sweetness of this song endures almost like a best friend. Corny, yeah, but this song SO nails it: I poured my heart out. It Evaporated. See? Genius.

    Ben was asked in an interview what this song was about and he simply replied "it's about loss". I think that sums it up.
