No one's staying with me
on a Friday night
I'm going some place,
but it surely isn't home.

Holidays and weeknights,
I miss my friends
and how we all wonder
if there's anything I haven't done
Every night, I get a message
in a bottle but I know what it says:

"Come and rest your head for a while
you know it's impossible to carry a load while
walking down the plank
or swimming alone across the world"

No one believes I am in places thereabouts
or how I find no gold in mags and on TV
Burn the news and all its friends
I won't drown myself in any of them

Come and rest your head for a while
you know it's impossible to carry a load while
walking down the plank
or swimming alone across the world

When I could dance but I just couldn't spell right,
I told my mother I could do anything
but up to now, it's hard for others to see that...
When I could dance but I just couldn't spell right,
I told my mother I could do anything
but up to now, it's hard for others to see that

I won't rest my head for a while
I know it's impossible to carried a load
while walking down the plank
or swimming alone across the world
Come and rest your head for a while
you know it's impossible to carry a load while
walking down the plank
or swimming alone across the world
