A Quiet Night at Home

about

Recorded summer / fall of 2018.

lyrics

So, you gave a decade to the hustle,
trading off all your friends for the shots.
You won a vacant gaze,
and lost the plot.

You cry out "it's good to be alive!"
every midnight as you climb the bar.
They smile and watch you hurt yourself,
you falling star.

They get
a magic evening free of charge.

When you're all out of answers,
and there's nowhere left to run,
well, come on over,
come alone,
if you want someone.

You laugh and write your second act,
for the five-hundredth time in one night:
become a wise James Murphy type,
dressed all in white.

It takes some work these days to feel alright.

When you're all out of answers,
and there's nowhere left to run,
well, come on over,
come alone,
if you want someone.

When you're all out of answers,
and there's nowhere left to run,
well, come on over,
come alone,
come on over,
come alone,
if you ever need a quiet night at home.
