Friends With Choruses

lyrics

If the first note doesn’t move you, the last line never will. I can’t make friends with choruses that don’t make me feel a thing. I’ve been trying for so long, but that don’t mean that I have earned it. It doesn’t mean I don’t fight for every singe chance I get.

It’s been sung about before in a million other lines about boring towns and shitty jobs that make you think somehow it’s a better alternative to take everything you have and put it in a bag. It’s easy, if you don’t carry much. It’s never really bothered me (sleeping on the floor), you’ll never even know I was here and I’ll be gone as soon as morning comes, so we don’t have much time.

But tonight we can do whatever we want, so just do it like you care. Because if you can’t find fun in fleeing, staying put only makes it worse and things are hard enough already.

It’s around about the time when it seems like all my lines are blurring and my words are slurring that I look through my phone for random names, and then say everything I have to say from the bottom of my heart, in a drunk text message in the middle of the night, and just hope for a reply before I fall down in my place.

The longer the night, the stronger grows the soul. At least until that morning light, and then I really have to go back home.

But tonight we can do whatever we want, so just do it like you care. Because if you can’t find fun in fleeing, staying put only makes it worse and things are hard enough already.
