Long drives in my car
And late nights behind bars
I guess that this is what I signed up for
But I hide that I'm a mess
And these pains inside my chest
I guess that we're both better off

This might seem strange but I don't deal well with change
This week has seemed like one long day
My hands are dry and I've got bags under my eyes
I've been worse but that doesn't mean I'm okay

Late night TV and half cold coffee
Have become my closest friends

This was supposed to be easy but this truth will make me choke
This is gonna take some time to figure out between the lines you sowed with doubt
And all the words we never spoke

Late night TV is the only thing that gets me
It's getting harder to pretend

And all I've got is coffee sweats and
Empty threats and
A million thoughts inside my head
And I can't think straight
Show up to work late
And I can't sleep in my own bed

Well I never thought this was forever
I just miss the times we had together
I think that we outgrew each other anyway
You said, you said it would get better
We always blamed it on the weather
I just can't seem to fall asleep these days
