about

This song was written as a joke between friends. He had started hanging out with someone who had also found the separation of their marriage suddenly and unexpectedly thrust upon them. They'd often go on long walks up Mt Rubidoux and discuss what life was like in such a bizarre situation. He texted her one day and said, "Give me 3 chords and a subject and I'll write you a song" and she responded "D, A, and E, and the only thing I can think of is my pillow because you woke me up with this text and I'm sleepy". And so wrote that morning an inside joke between them about how shitty the divorce process was. But the song grew on him and so he included it in the album.

lyrics

And all I wanted was my pillow

But all I found was this empty space in our bed

Isn’t this the place where you should lay your head?

But you’re gone, I guess I’ll sleep alone

And all I wanted was some breakfast

I’ll fry the eggs, you make the coffee

But in your absence well the kitchen seems so cold

Fuck it all, another day of drive thru

Never mind what I said, I don’t miss you, no I’m glad that you’re gone!

D I V O R C E me, leave me, leave, move it along!

Get the fuck out of here

I’ll make my own goddamn coffee from now on

I’ll grab your pillow and stuff it under mine to better rest my own head on

I’ll spread out all over your side of the bed and sleep fucking better with you gone

You’re gone gone gone gone gone

I’m sad you’re gone gone gone gone gone

I’m glad you’re gone gone gone gone gone

Fuck you! You’re gone gone gone gone gone

Cause all I wanted was my pillow

But all I found was this empty space in our bed

Isn’t this the place where you should lay your head?

But you’re gone, I guess I’ll sleep alone

OR JUST FIND SOMEONE BETTER
