Cigarettes are your medicine and your prescription needs renewing
Just as the day was brewing another cup of trouble for you

Learn to get older, learn to get over – nothing’s been this way since the day
Learn to get better, learn a bit faster – nothing’s been this way since the day
Since the day the real you went away

Drinking yourself stupid to look a bit cooler but your eyes are jaded
And you haven’t felt yourself, you haven’t felt yourself in months

Learn to get older, learn to get over – nothing’s been this way since the day
Learn to get better, learn a bit faster – nothing’s been this way since the day
Since the day the real you went away

Tube train hopping from pillow to pillow
Your life’s a little shallow and the wind can’t carry you along
You dance your ass to music, nothing’s looked so faker
Stupid hip shaker, learn the sadness in your song

Come on through, I’m not there to carry you through
Come on through, I’m not there to carry you through

Cigarettes are your poison and whatever’s fashionable this month
Has seen you through to morning to face the birds again

Learn to get older, learn to get over – nothing’s been this way since the day
Learn to get better, learn a bit faster – nothing’s been this way since the day
Since the day the real you went away

Come on through, I’m not there to carry you through
Come on through, I’m not there to carry you through
