lyrics

Wake up to a hollow,
Pounding metal can
Blowing in on the wind
Outside your bedroom

No one serves coffee
No sounds of beginning
No business to keep
Dark thoughts at bay

These are the saddest days
These are the saddest days
Head down with a heavy crown
Can’t swim so you might as well drown
In these lovely sad days.

Cancel the calls
And douse the kitchen walls
With a paper trail
Blazing for hours

The closet only half full
With nothing on her side
And dents in the carpet
Where the couch lay

These are the saddest days
These are the saddest days
Head down with a heavy crown
Can’t swim so you might as well drown
In these lovely sad days.

Tired and sure
That the light in the bathroom
Has gone out
And won’t ever return

Everything dies
Everything abandons you
This house has done
Nothing but betray

These are the saddest days
These are the saddest days
Head down with a heavy crown
Can’t swim so you might as well drown
In these lovely sad days.
