is this really what it's come to?
doing time inside my bedroom,
with the lights turned down.
well, you know I can't see much of anything
'cept the glow from my computer screen's
telling me to go.
and sleep is where I want to be,
but I can't get there for the life of me,
so I guess I'll just--
I'll watch TV.

I think about what we had on our headphones,
watch as my old dear friends leave their homes,
but I think I will stay--
stay right here.

driven up and down the coast now,
i've seen all kinds of places
where I could stay
and not hesitate.
but that's all I want to do,
i just want to sit right here and think it through,
'til the timing's right,
i'll wait for it.
time is running with me,
we're holding hands for all eternity,
then we'll have some kids,
and then we'll die.

I think about what we had on my headphones,
watch as my old dear friends leave their homes,
but I think I will stay--
stay right here.
