There's a man on the last bus home
I straddle on with a face of stone
Each step like a move of chess
To the torn red seat where the man addressed:
"Tell me why you gotta sit down"
"Cuz if I don't I'll be standing around"
"Well there's a seat that's bare to the bone"
"Well, sir, I don't feel like sitting alone"

There's nothing I could really say to you, that wouldn't be a lie
And all these things I get myself into, I couldn't justify
And last night alone with you, my reasons felt so right
But when I woke up ten years through, I saw the dead street light

She asks why I can't sleep
I lie thinking bout where I'll be
She comes and sits beside my head and tells me "That's just time gone wasted"
All the nerves on my hand are dead, from hitting on my empty head
Shaking out any words to say, but nothing comes out but a blank page

There's nothing I could really say to you, that wouldn't be a lie
And all these things I get myself into, I couldn't justify
And last night alone with you, my reasons felt so right
But when I woke up ten years through, I saw the dead street light

This is just too much, it's something I can’t touch
Right there in front of me but, I can't seem to get a hold
I think it's alright, to go and join the fight
Cuz that's the way that I am, looking forward endlessly
Welcome to the show, sitting there first row
Can you see me? Can you see me?
This isn't just a ploy, to sing about a boy
Who needs direction or your, sense of balance on a beam

Where I'm going I don't know
And no need for someone to show
You think that I'm not strong
Give me two good reasons to end this song
