When you're alone do you worry about me
When I'm alone all I do is worry, worry worry worry
Worry 'bout a heart attack, wonderin' who's got your back
If you had a healthy lunch, if somebody spiked your punch
Do the boys take care of you, or do they leave you home to brew
Yeah
Doin' fine without you

When you're alone do you sit and weep
Or do you keep the fire lit with photographs of you and me
Is the heaviness letting up, or do you feel like giving up
And if you gave up what exactly, what exactly would it mean
Overflowing septic tanks and avoiding all the bins
'Till somebody says "I knew the girl, she kept a tidy flat
But now the garden's full of rats, I know she used to sing
But now she talks to buildings
She's doin' swell without you"

When you go out, do you dread coming home
To an empty house and stale bread and nobody to warm your bed
Does it make you scared to die, 'cause that's what keeps me up at night
Lying stiff for several days with nobody there to say "wake up honey or are you dead"
And that keeps running through my head
Doin' sweet without you

When you wake up do you get a fright,
When suddenly you remember you no longer have a life
'Cause it scares the shit right out of me
An avalanche of memories come raging like a bitch on heat
So I don't stay in bed soon as I wake I flee the room say "life is great"
Stick on the radio and laugh and when the prime time jokes pretend that they relate to me
As if I'm not detached or lonely or is that how we all feel and eating crap is how we deal with life and all it's splendid trappings
Robbery and happy slapping
Yeah
Doin' sweet without you
Doin' swell without you
