lyrics

with every sun that sets
I’m getting close to breaking but I don’t know when
with every moon that sets
I know I’ve got to face it again
I know you’re sorting some things out
you’re doing better, but who’s keeping score?
but I don’t think that I can use that same excuse anymore

so I’m giving up; I’ll be right here
where I’ve been for too long
we’ve had a good run, but I can just speak for myself
send me a postcard from the places you’re—

if history’s told by the victor
how can I relate all the battles I’ve lost?
I had big plans for the summer
but I dreamed without dreaming of paying the cost
I never wrote that album, I still can’t play the banjo
I still don’t feel any better
but was that ever really part of the plan?

so I’m giving up; I’ll be right here
where I’ve been for too long
we’ve had a good run, but I can just speak for myself
send me a postcard from the places you’re going

I’m tracing patterns in the carpet of my room
that’s what I call entertainment now
I’ve got a pile of things I know I have to do
but I’ve accepted the fact that I’m not going to do them
I’m tired ‘cause I stayed up late last night, but I don’t know why
not like I filled that time with anything productive
last time I saw you, I saw the worry in your eyes
maybe you saw something constructive

so I’m giving up; I’ll be right here
where I’ve been for too long
we’ve had a good run, but I can just speak for myself
send me a postcard from the places you’re going
I’m sure they’ll be so fantastic
