Settle in 'cause the road going west got drowned
A river's running through this town
It picks me up that for a few more days you'll stick around
'Cause alone I'm sick, get sad quick, hate no sound

We're inside while their cars are stalling, drying out with the raindrops falling down
And tonight, tonight you've opened up my world, so thank you
Smiling hard like my face was frozen, I figure out what I can't when you're not around
And tonight, tonight you've opened up my world, so thank you

Told you once that if life got too grim, I'd coast
To Common Bay, become a ghost
I'd tie some weights on and think about what I'd loved the most
You in Minnesota air, alone and standing there, I've been so close

We're inside while their cars are stalling, drying out with the raindrops falling down
And tonight, tonight you've opened up my world, so thank you
Smiling hard like my face was frozen, I figure out what I can't when you're not around
And tonight, tonight you've opened up my world, so thank you

In the midst of enough, how'd I end up starving?
It's a foreign country that never felt like home
Took a storm and a drink, washing out pretense, puddled up on the floor, soaking up defense
Squinting eyes makes the world make a bit more sense, you know?
