in a creaky old chair, under upstairs
where you're watching the night slip away
there's a flickering candle
where i light my smokes
in the room with all of my books
and my guitar is sleeping
and the stereo's playing old songs
that i like to sing
and i stay up later than late in the evening
until the sun struggles
up and i finish thinking
until the dishes are dirty
and the ashtrays need cleaning

now i know better
than i know better
and i'm no better than most
but in this shaky old world
that's falling apart
i'll never break your heart
let me blow out this candle
and crawl up beside you
there's a good deal to dream
and laundry to do
and i'm so far behind that i haven't got a clue
and i'll never finish this living with you
