You Moved Away
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


You sold you records by the pile
For they were only yours for a while
You placed your furniture in the yard
And it was gone within the hour

When you moved away
All your friends came over and you told them what to take
When you moved away
Everyone thought it was a mistake
You mopped floors and filled the cracks
To get your security deposit back
You closed your account at the bank
You checked your tires and filled the tank

When you moved away
All of your friends got drunk and one by one begged you to stay
When you moved away
They all felt irrationally betrayed

Since you moved away
I walk past your vacant apartment almost every day
When you moved away
You left this town with such an empty space

Am I the only one who heard this song and immediately thought it was a euphemism for someone committing suicide?

Peter Doucette

I'll always hold this song close to my heart. My ex and I broke up right before this song came out. I sold all my stuff and moved to California the next day.

Alan Peters

The song really walks you through the steps of moving. Being a military kid, this song kinda hit my entire family.
