Tracing a path In concentric circles Following you down Through summers unlasting, mortal Living for those fleeting days, Just a halcyon haze Destructive in creation, no destination Bicycles torched in the blaze Was this all such a surprise? Our Meteoric rise Has had its time, had it time Now it comes crashing through the roof Bearing down on everything that we built anew Burning bridges like we knew it would do We won't make it through Was this all gone by sunrise? Our adolescent lies Have had their time, had their time Now it comes crashing through the roof Bearing down on everything that we built anew Burning bridges like we knew it would do We won't make it through

This isn't a party, no one invited you My depressing Leonard Cohen iTunes playlist will have to do Cause Solo cups and drinking games I think I'll take a pass My weekend sucked and this is how I'm going to make it last I'm getting drunk on a Monday I'm drinking all by myself I'm getting drunk on a Monday Cause at this point, might as well And if you asked me if I gave a shit I really couldn't say Cause I'm getting drunk on a Monday Kick back in my EasyChair and binge watch Game of Thrones Make myself a grilled cheese sandwich and eat it IN THE DARK ALONE And sweat pants go with anything it's not like I'll be seen I'm lying face down on the floor and I never want to leave I'm getting drunk on a Monday I'm drinking all by myself I'm getting drunk on a Monday Cause at this point, might as well And if you asked me if I gave a shit I really couldn't say Cause I'm getting drunk on a Monday Got a bid ol' bottle of Jack I'm drinking straight from the tap Don't need any mix I can see the water under my fridge I'm getting drunk on a Monday I'm drinking all by myself I'm getting drunk on a Monday Cause at this point, might as well And if you asked me if I gave a shit I really couldn't say Cause I'm getting drunk on a Monday Cause I'm getting drunk on a Monday

Its well past midnight when she comes walking through the door He waited hours, finally passed out on the bedroom floor Sara tiptoed lightly round the room Steven woke up, got in bed, passed out til well past noon He never sees her anymore Things don't feel quite like they did before Sara brings the groceries in through the front door He doesn't notice her, he's seen her face 10 times or more Steven's busy watching law and order Impatiently waiting for the commercial to be over He's waiting for it to resume She retreats back to their room Sara keeps herself awake Thinking that all good things can break Scrolling through the last 3 years of life Steven thinks of all the places he's been Just living on whiskey and routine Feels like leaving all his dreams behind They feel like this for months at a time If this is love then they've lost their mind They lie in bed in silence side by side Contemplate all the things they've tried Til Sara says its time for her to leave Sara packs a suitcase and leaves home Steve and Sara are alone Without so much as one goodbye

Coward... You sicken me, how could this be? You've succumbed, how did it come to this? You've succumbed, how did it come to this? Coward, you're a coward.

There's a light in my room and it won't let me sleep I could easily blow it our or I could Just go sleep somewhere else But the warmth that it cast is a warmth I don't think I have ever felt It's prettier than anything I've ever seen And it dances with me when I speak And I don't know how long it's been since I've slept Dreaming is the last thing on my mind This couch that I've found myself on Is smaller than it looks There's almost no covers to speak of But I've made this bed now I must lie down It's gotten so late that it's got to be early The birds must be singing by now Tell them to sing as loud as they please Because I don't plan on getting sleep I don't know how long I've been awake Dreaming is the last thing on my mind There's a light in my room

I fell asleep in the back of my car Drive overnight to get back, chasing the stars Looking back at the places I've been I'm moving on, without a trace, or so it seems You might think that it's a shame To pick up my life and start again If this is goodbye then why pretend That all good things come to an end The endless prairie passes by, almost unseen Too many things on my mind, no time to dream Can i regain what I lost, or have I changed Did I pay too steep a cost, to stay the same You might think that it's a shame To pick up my life and start again Put all my dreams up on a shelf They're within reach for someone else You might think that it's a shame To pick up my life and start again So fucking tired of being alone Whatevers left I'll call it home
