about

‘screenshots of every little pain’
More and more we try to document every little thing in our lives. When I scroll through my phone, I see both a lot of happy and sad moments. My phone is bursting with documentation of my life, and sometimes I wonder if it actually makes me feel better. Maybe it’s better just to remember without trying to record everything?

The speaker in this song is referring to how painful it is to look into all of this documentation of a relationship that recently came to a close. It was happy for a while, but now looking back it’s all just painful and every screenshot of happy moments has ultimately turned into a screenshot of every little pain.

lyrics

have I let my dreams fall through
an imaginary timeline
all the things I say and do
I can see them, like whispers on a web

you think you can unlink me
from all the places that we’ve been
I’m not a flower on your chain
you can’t screenshot every little pain

If you never liked it,
it never happened
it never happened
Unlike life
Unlike

Is my honesty embarrassing?
raw emotions from the gut
you copy, paste, ignore, and cut
I know, the words, they feed you

Wish I could look you in the eye
and show you everything you’ve done
Memories all tagged with stains,
screenshots of every little pain

If you never liked it,
it never happened
It never happened
Unlike life
Unlike

If you never liked it,
it never happened
It never happened
Unlike life
Unlike

I play my thoughts
Repeatedly
On a broken string
(What could’ve been?)
I feel ashamed
(What could’ve been?)
Let the memories seep in
What could’ve been?

If you never liked it,
it never happened
It never happened
Unlike life
Unlike
If you never liked it,
it never happened
It never happened
Unlike life
Unlike
