lyrics

Day one

I count my blessings while they're still around
Between the mornings and the clicking sounds
Of breaking down
The contents of the envelope
Of breaking out of the feeling that there's still hope
By the seventh day we're back to our routine
We're back to "it's alright, it's not what it seems"

Have I've been sleeping longer?
Have I been loving less?
Why do I chase these demons?
Why can't I get a little rest?

This is an inverted love song, for a habit that we want to kick
For all the times waking up saying we're done with it
For the clever minded girls who called it quits
Our restless chemistry lingering in splinters and bits

When can I get some sleep?
Why can't I get some sleep?
By the seventh day, we're back to our routine

I want to bury my head
Beneath the stars
And live the words of yesterday
That someday we'll all be fine
And out of the routine of the 7th day

Now we're drinking up, with tired eyes
And we're skipping nights and nights. For a dose of luck, a different sort of YES, for misplaced trust, for a hopeless mess of hopelessness.

When can I get some sleep?
Why can't I get some sleep?
By the seventh day, we're back to our routine.
With to many "should have" to many "could have been's"

Sedated kids, in coma cities, cloaked in a bunch of apologies. Here's to all the endless nights, lose the lights. Lose the lights
