you were irritable
oh, the morning cereal drowned
you lost your appetite
but the bed was still warm when you left
tea on the counter was cold
still adjusting your eyes to the light
the city looked new in the foggy spring weather
so wide awake, so wide
and you thought as you rode
to get air in the tires
and how she's always on your mind
you still feel terrible
hanging on the stereo
the line extends to the door
but your friends will all wait for your next smoke break
but they won't wait much more
‘cause they know
it's only who you are
and it's what you're all about
but it's hard to keep a focus
got to get this out
so they wait
well i'm still waiting for the chance to get out of here
on this frozen lake this ice don't break at all
but the hard part is convincing myself to leave here
i've got my friends and my ghosts
and the simplest desires
i'm still waiting for the chance to carry you out of there
all this traveling don't make no sense at all
but the hard part is persuading you to leave there
you got the sun on the coast
and them holy angel choirs

    General Commentlyric correction:

    you were irritable
    oh, this morning cereal drowned
    you lost your appetite
    but the bed was still warm when you left
    tea on the counter was cold
    still adjusting your eyes to the light
    but the city looked new in the foggy spring weather
    so wide awake, so wide
    and you thought as you rode
    to get air in the tires
    and how she's always on your mind

    and you know,
    its only who you are,
    but its what you're all about.
    and its hard to keep a focus,
    got to work this out.

    you still feel terrible
    hanging on the stereo
    the line extends to the door
    but your friends will all wait for your next smoke break
    but they won't wait much more

    ?cause they know
    it's only who you are
    but it's what you're all about
    and it's hard to keep a focus
    got to work this out.
    so they wait
    and they wait.
    and they wait.

    well i'm still waiting for the strength to get out of here
    on this frozen lake where the ice don't break at all
    but the hardest part is convincing myself to leave here
    cuz i've got my friends and my ghosts
    and the simplest desires
    i'm still waiting for the strength to carry you out of there
    though this traveling life don't make no sense at all
    but the hardest part is persuading you to leave there
    you got the sun on the coast
    and them holy angel choirs.
