tired of these drunken evenings
listening to my staggered breathing
nowhere to fall back in but to sleep
you're beautiful in dreams
where words pour from my mouth in streams
rivers i could never recreate

i dreamed you traced worlds against my back
i dreamed you'd never known me

last night i said that this would be my last
you took up so many pages
the same dead words in different phrases
so much i'm almost out of ink
woke up january rain
idly sliding down the window pane
i had a dream you taught me how to speak

i wrench my hands around my neck
cuz i didn't speak
cuz i was suffocating
it's about time i started to believe
i promise this will be the last one

    General CommentI've seen the larrys maybe six times, and the first time was at fireside bowl =( no more shows...and they closed with this song. I personally can relate to this song like no other. you took up so many pages
    the same dead words in different phrases
    so much i'm almost out of ink.. I take it to be about writing songs and dreaming of times with someone that u may never have the chance to be with because you're too nervous u might fuck things up.

    General Commentto Kevins514: i personally think it's about each one you said...the last drink because he missed someone...the last dream about the girl he misses....n the last time hesitating with a new girl......i also think there could be a chance of it being meant sarcastically
