lyrics

you sang a song, said it meant something to you
well, i don't see how you can feel anything when you can't stand up straight at nine o'clock, nightly
i'll take my third beer at midnight then fall asleep
i always wanted to be someone useful
so i get up early once every two weeks
clean the countertops, sweep the floors
then reward myself with coffee and sweets
we always said we'd be honest
well, honestly, i'm just trying to stay sane
running in circles has got me so tired
i'm thinking of running away
i always thought that i'd die onstage
well, i guess that i am full of it that way
ain't it wild how the years pass away?
while i stay at home and quietly age
we always said we'd be honest
well, honestly, i'm just trying to stay sane
running in circles has got me so tired
i'm thinking of running away
then a little spark starts a fire
and i think of all of the reasons to stay
but no other high gets me higher
will i level out or just fade away?
what would it take?
what would it take?
you sang a song, said it meant something to you
well, i just wish i could feel anything other than this sad, sinking feeling
that rattles around every day in my brain
