We might as well talk about things on the news..
Maybe the weather 'cause it's always true.
We've got nothing left we can do.
And we might as well talk about anything,
doesn't really matter, I'm sure you'll agree:
We don't stand on common ground.
And we might as well talk, talk about you,
and all of the brilliant things that you do.
Is that what you really wanted to hear?

And I tried so hard to talk really soft, but I knew I was talking way too loud.
You're irritated; I don't understand.

But if you're so glad that you left, why'd you come back?
Just to keep an eye on the ones in your past? Just to see if he still cares?
And we sat and we watched you sing all your songs, secretly hoping that we'd sing along, but there was nothing left and we both know it.

And in the end you left me sitting in the smoking lounge of an airport,
I was praying..
It might somehow turn back around, but it was really gone forever..
And I'll write you a letter, and never send it away.

'Cause in the end you left me sitting in the smoking lounge of an airport.
I was praying..
I was falling down.
Turning back to run..
Anywhere but now.
Anyone but you.

Why do I turn into such a dumb wreck every time you come back to town?
Why do I turn into such a dumb wreck every time you come back to town?

And I'll blame it on..
Whisky and coffee was waking you up just fine.
We'll talk about when we talked.
We'll talk about who to blame it on..
Whisky and coffee was waking you up just fine.
We'll talk about when we talked.
We'll talk about who to blame it on..
Whisky and coffee was waking you up just fine.
We'll talk about where we talked.
We'll talk about who to blame it on..
Whisky and coffee was waking you up just fine.
