I can see lights
White and I can see only lights
White and so I guess I can see nothing beyond
All of this time wasted
Crying over someone who doesn’t really see you leave at all
It’s sick and it’s the saddest, saddest thing to me
Much more, it’s much harder than just watching you leave
Who cares? It’s easy. It was so easy
I am…I am the king
I am the king
I am the king, I’m the king
I have a big brown leaf
And I’m chewing, chewing,
It’s cool, I’m alone
Nobody’s looking and anyway this is my idea of funny days
So fuck having babies and rocking them to sleep
And going to the movies
And drinking martinis
I don’t want you anymore
You were never that good
You were never that good, baby
I can see lights
White and I can see only lights
White and so I guess I can see nothing, nothing beyond

    General CommentI love this song. It kind of reminds me of a breakup, after which you can no longer see any kind of future and where you start to tell yourself that your past was a mistake.
