you’ve heard this all before and you’ll hear it again
I’m a cheap date maybe
but at least we’re still friends
‘friends till the end’
what a message to send
you had the fate of those words in the grasp of my
fingers tremble quiet at the sound of a voice
quavering on the line
what an easy choice
handle on my own
or in a crowded room, alone

well I’m flat on my back again
eyes blinded by this street light interrogation lamp
I swear to tell the whole truth
and nothing but it, sure
even if you’re heard it all before

and I guess I’m left to wonder
wonder what’s worse
to lose it all at once
or be left to linger
I felt it in my bones
as the phone dropped to the floor
so I stare out at the night from the railroad tracks
as the lights burn out I know you’re never coming back
my soul is sinking’ from the weight of big thinking’ now
