I think you’ve had enough to handle
And I can see it in your smile
It's become a function of her fashion
As if satisfaction's going out of style, whoa oh, whoa oh

It's just a blessing of reception
And I see sorrow in your eyes
Oh let the candidate for caution
Crossing your sentimental lines

If it's okay, could I stay a while?

Color coded in calming you
The walls are barren, they're just like you
Hardly motivated and destitute design

Upstate blues they could paint this room
Cold and grey like New York in you

(Whoa oh, whoa oh)

I didn’t want to stay here but you couldn’t wait to leave
A whole community of people never sleeping, only drinking alone
They soak their twenties into tens, it's like their twenties never end

Upstate blues they could paint this room
Cold and grey like New York in you

I survey the scene I see
If misery loves company
then what does that make me?

Dusting for prints here
And chasing the names of your friends who've escaped you
I've begged you to leave Niagara, it makes headstones

Turn out the tricks beneath your sleeves
So you can see what you've always feared
I know this all seems absurd to hear

But I couldn’t follow through

Upstate blues they will paint your room
Cold and grey like New York in you
