Watching TV on the couch until 4:52
The definition of being alone is living without you
And the weed in your back pocket tells me you're not going to bed
All this anxiety and fear couldn't all just be in my head

I've burned all my calendars because I've stopped counting down the days
Because I'm catching myself waiting for you to stay

Lighting the fireplace and listening to George Jones
And the wine spills over when I run to answer the phone
You tear your dress at the hem when you trip and fall
Who knew that this is one one shot before last call

I've stopped the clocks because the time seems to slip away
And I'm done with saying that I'm waiting for you to stay

Bless me if you can with your presence and your touch
And stop your philosophical jargon because it's starting to not mean much
Oh, sweet cherry blossoms and talcum where you rest your head
Who knew I signed up for loneliness when you left this empty bed
