lyrics

VERSE 1:
I often heard my father say, the best things happen during the day
Past two there’s nothin open but hell, the crack house and taco bell
I took his word till I left home then I set out to prove him wrong
I left my house late Thursday night not to return till Friday’s light

Its one, its two its three its four
And nothin makes sense anymore
Your all alone its so unfair
Its six, it’s seven it is eight
You’re not tired and its so late
You’re all alone its so unfair

VERSE 2:
I met my friends out on the town, for a couple hours we messed around
At 11 o’ clock they had to leave cause they had work and needed sleep
I started to drinks but quickly found my eyes wanted to close themselves
So I slapped my face and walked outside prepared alone to face the night

VERSE 3:
At 3am I found a bum who told me he was on the run
In Vegas he had played roulette and got himself deep into debt
He asked me if I had spare cash, he lost it when the market crashed
I called called his bluff and went my way and walked straight into a cafe

VERSE 4:
Sipping coffee all alone I wished I was alone at home
I asked the waitress “what’s your name”, but all my efforts were in vein
“Read the tag,” she turned and scoffed, I guess she didn’t want to talk
So I got up and wandered on, tired of waiting for the dawn

VERSE 5:
At six o five I saw the sun and went home cause the night was done
I slept like I was back in school and realized I’d been a fool
I’d done naught but waste my time, and struggle not to close my eyes
My father’s wisdom was a gem I won’t stay out all night again
