Red numbers on the clock, they tell me five.
I'm there, old bed, curled up upon my side.
I'm giving up before I ever even tried.
She said baby, you're worth my time.
I could think of no reply.
Guilty now, like blood it makes me cough
In the bathroom scrubbing hard to get it off.
Turning to the room she's nearly gone.
She said baby you've done me wrong,
I can't wait, I'm moving on.

And there's an aching in my teeth,
Cause I clench them when I sleep
And you'd think that I could stop.
And there's a burning in my eyes
Cause I squeeze them shut at night,
And yet still I carry on,
And still I carry on.

Anyone who knows me well enough,
Knows seclusion is a part of what I'm made of.
But living on my own, I'm feeling stuck.
And my friends are so in love.
This music's like a wheel I'm never done.
The friends I had, pushed most of them away,
In the hopes of making something worth my wait.
And now they're even harder to retain,
Oh I tried, oh how I tried in vain.
To confess, to repent, to explain.

And there's an aching in my teeth,
Cause I clench them when I sleep
And you'd think that I could stop.
And there's a burning in my eyes
Cause I squeeze them shut at night,
And yet still I carry on,
And still carry on.
