Something Corporate - When It Goes Down

When it all just fits,
no more waiting up til midnight to see if he comes home
And it sinks in
through these holes in your old bedsheets:
you might spend your nights alone..
and you don’t want to be alone,
no not alone.

When you think too much,
and you came to another game, despondent, out of touch
and you reach so hard it makes you fall
for these hands that let you go—but shouldn’t let you go at all..
they shouldn’t let you go at all,
no not at all.

I don’t know what it’s like to be you, baby,
but from the looks, I don’t think I want to.
And I know I’ve been hanging on type so maybe,
‘just might mean I want you.. yeah babe,
oh want you..

You know what I mean when I say that I come from a place that hurts,
you fit in my scene, try to make everything work..
You watch me turn green.. watch me come down —yeah but I might never land.
You said you’d understand,
but you don’t want to be there when it goes down again.

So I sit, staring at this ceiling
gives me another feeling about who you are
and you know I was really thinking I could be another Lincoln,
if I got this far, got this far, driving in my car
and then I started holding on to things I couldn’t keep
Yeah a wiseass called me faggot, but I feel more like a creep.
And these things creep.. I watch them creep..
yeah but I don’t get no sleep.

I don’t know what it’s like to take it slow,
but from the feel I don’t think I want to..
no I don’t want to,
and I now know..
I know that it seems I’m letting go,
but the things I know, I know it’d haunt you
and I don’t want to haunt you.

You know what I mean when I say that I come from a place that hurts,
you fit in my scene, try to make everything work..
You watch me turn green.. watch me come down —yeah but I might never land.
You said you’d understand,
but you don’t want to be there when it goes down again.

You know what I mean when I say that I come from a place that hurts,
you fit in my scene, try to make everything work..
You watch me turn green.. watch me come down —yeah but I might never land.
You said you’d understand,
but you don’t want to be there,
you don’t want to be there,
you don’t want to be there when it goes down again..
when it goes down again.
