Oh, laugh, laugh, forget about your past
Fight, flight, offer through the night
With darkness nipping at your heels
Sharp dressed, you lie and cheat and steal

Hold tight, can't you hear the sound of footsteps
Beating at the ground
Your heartbeat knocking at your chest
Your worst friend just became your best

So don't you cloud it
And make no bones about it
You're never gonna see me 'cause I'm leaving at the crack of dawn

It won't be long till the morning sun
I'm waiting for you in the dark
But I won't be there
I won't be there
When you come home
You're on your own

Our tears, beers, you're wet behind the ears
Sin, grin, I know where you've been
Your jig's up, you never gave a damn about no one
Unless they lend a hand and lift you up
And carry you along but then you're gone
When you hear another song
And now you're back scratching at the door
But this time there's no one at the store

So don't come crying
This time there's no one buying
You're never gonna see me 'cause I'm leaving at the crack of dawn

It won't be long till the morning sun
I'm waiting for you in the dark
But I won't be there
I won't be there
When you come home
You're on your own

When you come home
You're on your own
If I must fall I'm gonna fall on my own
And when I'm away
I hope you're okay
But I just can't stay

It won't be long till the morning sun
I've waited for you in the dark
But I won't be there
I won't be there
When you come home
You're on your own

It won't be long till the morning sun
I've waited for you in the dark
But I won't be there
I won't be there
When you come home
You're on your own
When you come home home
You're on your own
You're on own
