lyrics

I was the miserable morning, in a fog
Suffering from a night that was long gone
I left nothing I can remember in my path

You told me I better take a closer look
At the broken window
At the full notebook
That’s your handwriting right there, now isn’t it?

The words were written in a frenzied pace
Like a stack of bills stuffed in an old suitcase
And I swear to God
I don’t know what it meant

You caught me off guard
I was fine falling apart
Fine spiraling
You caught me off guard
Without a second thought
For another human being

Your lips were drawn from your pocketbook
Down on the sidewalk while everybody looked
I wore my hat real low to cover my eyes

You told me that it was no use
And broke every black and white tile with your high heeled boots
And stood just like a scarecrow in the room

I didn’t have time to catch my breath
Between the purple tongues and the drunken scents
And I swear to God
I don’t know what it meant

You caught me off guard
I was fine falling apart
Fine spiraling
You caught me off guard
Without a second thought
For another human being

This is all that I have left
Some scribbled notes
Some drunken texts
And I swear to God
I don’t know what it meant
