I raised a glass
I cleared the bar as far as I could see
My arms stretched out in front of me
I broke into this story

One of self-worth
One of reinvention
From coast to mighty coast
Some with bridges some with boroughs

And who tells a tale
Without a good woman there
To keep him in line
Maybe break his heart in time

So now I'm standing up
Recalling all the years when I
I could make it through the day
Without closing a tab before catching my train

Gone for weeks
Living out of a van
I'm gonna drink with my friends
We're gonna sweat out our poisons

But the tours end
The music, it's gotta stop
And now we scream from different coasts
We scream from different continents

So I acclimate
I move around I make mistakes
I try and find my footing
In a city that's too unforgiving

So let's not
Let's not kid ourselves
Well SF is too far away from us now
So we look ahead
And maybe plan a future with a woman instead

Now my head is filled
With a hope and fear and attitude
But I still sleep alone at night
I spoon a fucking pillow

Seems like nothing I do
Match the feelings that I worked through
Of you not coming home to me
While I stagger down the avenues

So let's not
Let's not kid ourselves
Well as we look back we're just chasing our tail
And we change scenes every few years
And we kill loves just to bring them back as someone else
And nothing I do will keep me sober or novel or loved
