i know that ... in the arcade game was just a final straw
a series of events that sent you running from the bar
and i left my picture off the beer and i left the bar so soon
cause i knew i couldn't let you leave without kissing you

and i laid awake in my bed and i could hear you sleeping
and i knew that i couldn't sleep, so i kept daydreaming
climbed up from that ladder, camped out on the floor
hoping you'd wake and know what i was there for

but then the luckiest thing happened: my roomate was so drunk
and she left the water running and it ...
sounded like the freight train that you were waiting for
maddie had to catch the ... back to our door

so then you stood up and step on me and got all confused
wondering who was laying on the floor next to you
and i said that it was me and then you asked again
and i said that it was me, i think it started to make sense

so i asked you what you thought of the boss and our consult
you thought that he was great and then you told me 'bout the swamps
and the flat lands and the punk kids that kept moving east
and the sissies house and all the kids that moved to philly

... and then i had to go to work
and those birds that i hate woke up and started to chirp
and i wanted you to stay, but you had to leave
cause you're a rockstar and you had to go play a shell and eugene
yeah, rockstars have to leave to play shells and eugene

so all day at work i felt like ... my drink
ten cups of coffee just to stay awake
and i wish that you had been here for one more night
so that we could have ... in the ... moonlight

... twenty hours like a blizzard heat
stayed up watching movies and drinking cheap beer
the fireplace was filled with all furniture
that i rescued from the shad to keep us warm in winter
you kept me warm in winter.

    General CommentI love this song

    With my adjustments:

    i know that quarter in the arcade game was just a final straw
    in that series of events that sent you running from the bar
    and i left my picture off the beer and i left the bar so soon
    cause i knew i couldn't let you leave without kissing you

    and i laid awake in my bed and i could hear you sleeping
    and i knew that i couldn't sleep, so i kept daydreaming
    climbed down from that ladder, camped out on the floor
    hoping you'd wake and know what i was there for

    but then the luckiest thing happened: my roommate was so drunk
    and she left the water running and it woke all of us up
    sounded like the freight train that you were waiting for
    maddie had to catch the get back to our door

    so then you stood up and stepped on me and got all confused
    wondering who was laying on the floor next to you
    and i said that it was me and then you asked again
    and i said that it was me, i think it started to make sense

    so i asked you what you thought of the boss in Arkansas
    you thought that he was great and then you told me 'bout the swamps
    and the flat lands and the punk kids who kept moving east
    and the sissies house and all the kids that moved to philly

    But that clock kept counting down to when i had to go to work
    and those birds that i hate woke up and started to chirp
    and i wanted you to stay, but you had to leave
    cause you're a rockstar and you had to go play a show in eugene
    yeah, rockstars have to leave to play shows in eugene

    so all day at work i felt like puking cause I drank
    ten cups of coffee just to stay awake
    and i wish that you had been here for one more night
    so that we could have ... in the ... moonlight

    ... twenty hours like a blizzard heat
    stayed up watching movies and drinking cheap beer
    the fireplace was filled with old furniture
    that i rescued from the shed to keep us warm in winter
    you kept me warm in winter.
