lyrics

Things are so much quieter now but that's OK they sucked before. This rooftop's ours, we're off tomorrow, and I feel like I can finally exhale. Things won't stay this good forever.

And these are the things I obsess over, things that always bother me and disappear when Friday comes.

So why do I feel so worried that you're the one getting the worst of this and you were probably right about what you told me: "No one's got time to help you through this."

Do you ever think all the things that had to line up exactly right to get you to the point in time you're at right now and realize there was such a little chance of it ever statistically working out?

And these are the things I obsess over, things that always bother me and disappear when Friday comes.

So why do I feel so worried that you're the one getting the worst of this and you were probably right about what you told me: "No one's got time to help you through this."

So let's hang out up here there's no place else to go on nights like tonight when the street below has calmed down we can hang like hungry ghosts.

We will try ignoring it.

The first time I put these chords I sang a song for the friends who left now I sing for the ones who stuck around.
