I dreamt that I was back home watching
my mother place the table settings
my brother's guitar softly ringing
and father walking upstairs sighing
woke up wishing i could stay there
back when I was headed nowhere
back when I was so much younger
I was happier

now I'm left with the things that I've got
high dive bars and phone call drug drops
just some things to make my mind stop
spinning for a while
cause all I see are the things that I've lost
shaking with this fever I caught
the morning mirror just stares back bloodshot
daring me to blink

but I'm still waiting
for anything
to comfort me
I'm still waiting
for anything
I'd like to be
I'm still waiting
is anything
even happening?

so grab the car; let's make a run
leave the town before the sun
and wake up where the air is clean
far outside the city's reach
pull yourself up next to me
close enough to crush a dream
i know we're one fourth down the road
but take me now: I'm ready to go...

I think I'll sleep in today
I think I'll sleep in today
I think I'll sleep in today
I think I'll sleep in today

cause all I really need is
somewhere to lay my head tonight
yeah all I really need is
somewhere to lay my head tonight
