i'll dig a hole in my room
from birmingham and back again for you
i tried all i could to be true
but must admit i wasnt really listening to you
i folded my hands to a bird
the shadows made you laugh, they made you sunburned
do you think we can rotate our turns
i think you got a good thing going
i think its gonna be alright sometime, i swear

i tried all i could to believe
in something living in the chiminey
you laughed i was praising you see
with both my arms lifted i was choking.

do you really like bieng alone?
do you really like being alone?
la de la de la
i played my guitar in my room
... ....
im writing the things that will eat
your fingers and your legs alphabeticly
so i did what i could to be true
i must admit that nobody was really listening to you
so lets fly this plane over the moon
hopefully i'll bring it back really soon

do you really like being alone?
of course you dont
do you really like being alone?
do you really like being alone?
when if you went back home
and got an actual job
and kissed your wife and two daughters
like i wish i could
and we would all be free
you think then we'd all be free
the lights they were bright on my skin
trying to figure out just what she means enternal sin (?)
so i ask for forgiveness again
dont know if i've got it but my fingers are crossing

cuz i dont really like being alone
of course i dont
no i dont really like being alone
well i dont really like being alone
so i think i might just go back home
and get an actual job
and stop selling my soul
into the devil, he buys so much merch from us.
and then we'd all be free
you think that we would all be free.

cuz i dont really like being alone
i dont really like being alone
i think i might just go back home
get an actual job
and tell my both redneck neighbors to bring their dogs inside
then i'd get some sleep
i'd like to think that we would all finally sleep.

    General CommentFor the missing line, I hear...

    Chris yells, "We're all trying just to rock here."

    Other than that, looks pretty dead on.

    I think that the song is pretty obviously about being in a band and touring, and this is an open question to either the band mates or another band/person on the tour.

    Andy Hull has a way with simple progressions and melodies that make them sink in more than I thought possible. This song and his Right Away, Great Captain project are striking examples of this, and I can't wait to hear more.

    General CommentIf you look up the song title on youtube there's a video with really good sound. I guess you can listen to it there? you could also rip the sound from it.
