Don’t bend down in front of me
It’s more than I can take
Don’t brush the hair out of your face
It’s more than I can take

Here’s to absent friends
Who might never meet again
Here’s to you and I and everything

Try your best not to smile at me
It’s more than I can take
Or stand in close proximity
It’s more than I can take

I had my life straight
Before you came

And now I fail to sleep through the night
I fail to sleep through the night
I can’t learn anything from everything that’s happening

So don’t give me things you once held
Expect me still to breathe
Don’t go and get your hair cut nice
And show it off to me

Here’s to absent friends
Who will never meet again
Here’s to you and I and everything

They’ll hold a wake in the blasted night
For the names of you and I
Wide awake in the middle of the night
For you and I

And now I fail to sleep through the night
I fail to sleep through the night
I can’t learn anything from everything that’s happening

It’s more than I can take.
