drinking in the afternoon
this is what it’s driven to
is there anything else to do
i could’ve sworn it’s three a.m.
it’s quiet in the room again
this is where the story ends

time for me to act my age
i’ve got nothing if i’m not the rage
like that would matter anyway
i just don’t think you understand
i just don’t think you understand
a story needs a scene to end
but it’s hard to say goodbye
at least we got to have this time

drinking in the afternoon
the loneliest hotel room
i hope the answer comes to you
this is not the way for me
this is not my last defeat
try to make the ends meet
but it’s hard to say goodbye
at least we got to have this time

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. I have the demo version and it's just as amazing.
    It can be related to a lot of things other than just the breakup, though. It can be tied to going off to college, or moving, or the end of really any type of relationship. I think the versatility and simplicity of this song is something that makes it really amazing.
