Long ago the clock
Washed midnight away
Bringing the dawn

Oh God. I must be dreaming
Time to get up again and
Time to start up again
Pulling on my socks now

[Where did the night go?]

Should have been asleep
When sitting there drinking beer
And trying to start another letter to you
Don’t know how many times I “Didn’t write again”
Last Night

Should’ve been asleep
When I turned the stack of records
Over and over
So I wouldn’t be up by myself

Where did the night go?

Should go to sleep now
And say
“Fuck a job and money
because I spend it all on unlined paper
and can’t get past ‘Dear Baby, How are you?”

Brush my teeth and shave
Look outside
Sky is dark
Think it may rain

Where did…

Where did..

Where did…
