LyricsEdit

You told me that your 20 years
have gone by much too fast
and you've been hoping this year will be
better than the last
You said you've been waging a war
against the loneliest of nights
with the strongest drinks and longest lines
it's not that big a surprise
that you're feelin more dead than alive
you're feeling more dead than alive

So I'll let you know
if you need
somewhere to go
I'll be listening when you call
and i'll be there if you fall off if
you need someone to believe in you
i'll let you know I will

You said the hole in your head
has gotten bigger than the hole that's in your chest
and you're stuck between
the past and present tense
you said you've been waging a war
against so many years of lies
with stronger drinks and longer lines
it's not that big a surprise
that you're feelin more dead than alive
you're feeling more dead than alive

So I'll let you know
if you need
somewhere to go
I'll be listening when you call
and i'll be there if you fall off if
you need someone to believe in you
i'll let you know I will
i'll let you know I will
i'll let you know I will
but sometimes...
