Downstairs at 6:05
Put my head up, feel alive
Can’t shake the feeling though that something’s not right

A quiet slink away
A good morning to the day
Wearing the clothing that I had on last night

A cocktail we enjoyed
Intemperance we employed
A naïve notion that we had it laid bare

A dim-lit mystery
Not to be left unseen
Though through a haze when we finally got there

I know it’s incorrect
Indecent, decadent
We’re both sinners in this state of affairs

You got no history
You got no misery
You’re a fresh face in this vanity fair

And now I’m a mess
I need your tenderness
But I can’t take all this changing your mind

Leave me an alibi
Give me a real goodbye
I’m an orphan in a world that’s unkind

I guess I never had a prayer
in this state of affairs

You hold my heart but you don’t care
And it just isn’t fair

I need to rest
I need to rest
But I can’t get home


from We Did This On Purpose, released January 19, 2010
