Well I couldn’t fall asleep again
My breath was ash and sour
With the echoes of my rising voice
That split the ears of a former lover

I’m sorry I brought you down
To the place where I’ve been dwelling
But I haven’t learned to live
Without your spark
And I got to somehow live
This life I’ve got

And so you spit me out
In a decaying world
With but the faintest light to guide me
And I find and walk that path I know
To be reserved for the slowly dying
‘Cause I know how to paint the town
And carry on with women
But if you think that’s what I want
Well, girl, you’re wrong.
But I guess that’s just how I’m livin’
Now that you’re gone.

So when I called you, you cried again
And with each sob I grew bitter
And oh I long to hear your sweetest voice
It so shakes me I might shatter
Are you tryin’ to bring me down
When I was feeling so much better?
Or make me look for your love where it is not?
Well I guess I’m finally learning now
I guess I’m finally learning how
I guess I’ve learned how to live with the life I’ve got.
