- Song about insomnia
- March 20th, 2009
You've become quite a bad habit
But I've been throwing less of a nicotine fit
and having breakdowns instead, alone in my bed
With just a song that I love and your voice in my head
I only wish I could hit the notes that you sang
But I'm more or less afraid to try
So I'll continue to lie
And if you ask, I'm fine
And if you're still wondering, I had a good time
I just wish I had a little more to say
than "I'll talk to you later" and "no, it's okay."
I hope you believe me, though my word isn't much
I've never kept a promise that I made as a crutch
and this is no different than what I've said before
To her or to you, or to the next girl I'll be crazy for
The next girl I'll be crazy for
Who'll be the next girl I'll be crazy for?
You won't be the next girl I'll be crazy for
Because I'm tired of holding onto things that don't mean anything anymore
And if you ask today
if everything's okay
I'll probably lie through my teeth
and not say "I've been losing sleep"
because my dreams are keeping me awake...
keeping me awake... keeping me awake
I should be ashamed
I should at least tell them your name.
This song would sound like a Dashboard Confessional song if I was that good. But I'm not, so it won't.
