It's always 3 a.m.
In your world
So I'm drinking this
As if I hadn't slept
Telling stories which tell their stories
Themselves
You didn't even hear them
I thought to somewhere else

As long as I go somewhere
You'll still be trying to see
As long as I go somewhere
You'll still be trying
As long as I go somewhere
You'll still by lying to me
As long as I go somewhere

If you're so sure that you don't need love
Only it's as if I hadn't slept
As laughter smiles back in your direction
But you're protected by the smoke from
Your cigarette
Then you tried to hold my hand
Under the table
But it's far too vague to be meaningful

As long as I go somewhere
You'll still be trying to see
As long as I go somewhere
Every night has a hold over me
As long as I go somewhere
You'll still be lying to me
As long as I go somewhere

And you held me like I was a shadow
But completely without any mystery
And you compared me to a shadow
Which in itself is
Some kind of victory
