There's a coffee stain
around your eye
And lines that I don't recognize
Everything changed
from being okay
the night that you came home
so late

And I know by the time
on the stove
that you were no longer
mine alone
I guess we're all
just out on loan
and everybody is only
their own

oh i loved you
and i guess i still do
everything was going so good
that I thought something bad might happen
and then it did
if you know the difference
bettween bad and good
thought that I'd know
but I cross my toes
and thats how it goes

Maybe I'm a fatalist
to let it all go at this
like some balloon
I'll probably miss
lost in a treetop

(chorus)

    General Commenti adore this song, i can't believe there are no comments.

    i love the part

    everything was going so good
    that I thought something bad might happen

    that's always the way it goes :)

    General CommentI guess we're all
    just out on loan
    and everybody is only
    their own

    In the end, we're not defined by anything other than who we are. Rings of existentialism, a realization that we alone decide who we are, and beyond that anything else is false, a fabrication.
