Nights like these feel too big for me
On this endless stretch of apartment sheets
Still the chains of the snowless streets sing to me
And it seems to be that every night for at least the last few weeks
You hold me close and my heart admits defeat
And with the slow, impatient beats, it hums the day complete
And I fall asleep

You're the only habit I won't break
The only set of vacant seats I save
You deserve a reverence I can't pay

Now every morning I can hear you chase the monsters of your waking hours away
You turn to me and say, "Baby boy, it hurts to have to wait"
And for the next few months that I'm away
You feel the ground below you start to shake
There's nothing I can do
The bruises are more black than they are blue

You're the only habit I won't break
The only set of vacant seats I save
You deserve a reverence I can't pay

You're the only habit I won't break
The only set of vacant seats I save
You feel it further every day
You deserve a reverence I can't pay
