lyrics

The end of the day

Empty bottles in a line
It's snowing softly outside
And we're talking like old friends
Thick as theives

Started out so insecure
I tripped myself on each word
But as the night wore on
You put me at ease

I told you that I'd walked
Under a metal grey sky
Down the highway
With my face to the wind

When I'd finally hitched a ride
I was so worn out and tired
I forgot about
The trouble I was in

Like a bolt from the blue
Such a long way from home
So I was really glad I ran into you

If I look tired it's the truth
Since I left home last night
I must have walked a hundred miles in these shoes

Hard to find you're so aloof
By the end of the day
I was sure I'd never make it to you

If I look tired it's the truth
Hey babe thanks for the ride
But I'll walk on from here, no it's cool

Two AM and there's rebellion
Rising out of the void
A subtle meanness etched on every face

Across the table one last sip
And slap some cash on the bar
And you told me “Let's get out of this place”

In the alley snow is falling
And the night's at an end
I tried to tell you why I needed to leave

You cut me off your speech is slurred
You search for keys in your purse
I'm walking on alone at quarter past three

Like a bolt from the blue
Such a long way from home
So I was really glad I ran into you

If I look tired it's the truth
Since I left home last night
I must have walked a hundred miles in these shoes

Hard to find you're so aloof
By the end of the day
I was sure I'd never make it to you

If I look tired it's the truth
Baby thanks for tonight
But I can walk on from here, no it's cool

Ah, no, I really have to go before too long

Ah, no, I really have to know if I've been wrong
