Another Day

lyrics

I fell asleep with the TV on
Hand around the telephone
Thinking about you

Came close, but I got scared
Didn’t think you should have to bear
Witness
To something, something like this

Another day, another dollar spent
On shit made to make me forget
Because I can’t stop

They say it’s do or die man
But I forget what I am
Fighting
For, who am I fighting for

Cause looking in the mirror
I am barely reminded
Of somebody I used to know
You say you got what I need
To keep me from crossing
This line I toe

So I will try to keep the medicine down
But it’s hard when I’m alone in this house
And I’m not sure I wanna stick around

I could change if I wanted to
But what I want’s got nothing to do
With what I need

What I need is a wildfire
As loud and bright as a gospel choir
To burn me
Down, back to something good

Cause looking in the mirror
I am barely reminded
Of somebody I used to know
You say you got what I need
To keep me from crossing
This line I toe

So I will try to keep the medicine down
But it’s hard when I’m alone in this house
And I’m not sure I wanna stick around

You know all my promises
They just end up as good intentions
Because what I say can never seem
To hold my attention

So I’m trying to keep the medicine down
But I’m desperate here in this house
I’m trying to want to stick around
For you
