lyrics

in the nighttime world you know the hours move slow
don’t look at the clock man there’s hours to go
till the night falls away and the sun rises up in the sky
you could drop by between 11 and 3
I’m full of advice and the next round’s on me
then I turn my back and you leave without saying good by

don’t it feel like there’s no turning back
this is just the path that I’ve taken
another day gently slips through the cracks
close my eyes to the dawn that is breaking

the streets are deserted as I make my way home
sit on the couch and I’ll slowly get stoned
in the flickering glow of the home shopping show on tv
theres a guy selling knives so I give him a call
he asks me which ones I want I say man I’ll take them all
just wrap them up nice and send them off to my old used to be

its the gift that keeps giving I hope that she thinks of me
when she sits down to eat with her new family
and I hope that she smiles and I sure hope that she gets the joke
cause in the night time world you can get stuck in the past
you might start to dream but you wake up to fast
then you’re stuck lying there with the empty words you never spoke

and it feels like there’s no turning back
wake up and go through the motions
another day gently slips through the cracks
and this is just the lie that I’ve chosen
