Gone Wrong

Well I guess we both got what we asked for
So why then does it feel like a car crash?
The gears and the springs of this broken machine
Just glittering mute on the pavement

Hold on
Where’d we go so wrong?

Well I guess I was blinded by victory
And somehow I lost who I was
The lies, the misdeeds I should’ve foreseen
And words that I only regretted

Hold on
Where’d we go so wrong?
It’s not enough to say,
“Mistakes, I guess, were made.”
‘Cause we learn from the past or repeat it

Maybe we just were too different
Or maybe we both could’ve changed
But that ship has gone by and all that’s left behind
Are rough waters and too short a memory

Hold on
Where’d we go so wrong?
It’s not enough to say,
“Mistakes, I guess, were made.”
‘Cause we learn from the past or repeat it

Sunrise

Seventeen after three a.m.
A single light burning brought me out of bed
Found you outside wrapped in an old bedspread
I asked what was wrong and you said

I don’t know the last time I saw a sunrise
And I can’t think why I never seemed to mind
It’s a shame, all the days I never realized
All the ways that there are to be blind

Said you woke up from a dream
Of younger days and outworn identities
You forgot, you said, so many things
“How’d this life get so goddamn distracting?”

I don’t know the last time I saw a sunrise
And I can’t think why I never seemed to mind
It’s a shame, all the days I never realized
All the ways that there are to be blind

I slip my arm around your waist
As you turn east
Waiting for the light of day
Together at least

Cause we can’t sleep anyway…
