They showered early
and caught the 9 p.m. train
We were late again
We had no shadows left on the dock
And sometimes the you is not the you you think
It can be something else
The lonely alternative

to the unwritten rules
And the wine on the floor, you left it but I
felt the need to clean it up.

Haven't I had enough?

'Cause you can be together apart
'Cause you can be (you can be) together apart
Well, you can be together apart

I drove home early
with a bag full of rocks
and some blue napkins I stole from the restaurant
Everyone there was younger than me
and I felt out of place
'cause I'm not that old yet
I don't even own a pair of glasses

But I put my napkin in my lap
and I knew all the wine, I hid it well but
did you think you knew which you wanted?

Ah, did you think long and hard about it?

'Cause you can be together apart
'Cause you can be (you can be) together apart
Well, you can be together apart

Now that I realize that there are no rules
I can do whatever I want
There's nothing to think about

'Cause if you stop to reflect
then you'll pause and you've lost it
As soon as you recognize you have to act

'Cause you can be together apart
'Cause you can be (you can be) together apart
Well, you can be together apart

You don't have to destroy yourself
You can wait for somebody else to do it for you
You just have to keep a straight face and realize that everyone's breath is ruining everyone else's otherwise perfect life

And there's nothing you can do
