We lose weeks like copper pennies
we’re a streetlight dressed in fog
we throw time away like frisbees
we sing forgotten songs

We lose weeks like buttons
where they end up we don’t know
time soon becomes a crossroads
where we go to sell our souls

A body and mind in disrepair
a withered smile, a haggard stare

So where were you that day
when it finally happened did they hear you say
the irony is lost on me
the irony is lost on me

I lost you like my car keys
you were here and now you’re gone
you ran away half-heartedly
you took entirely too long

A body and mind can’t be found
to replace this ship that’s run aground

So where were you that day
when it finally happened did they hear you say
the irony is lost on me
the irony is lost on me
