LifeRaft

You never woke me up this morning,
Was it just a courtesy, to leave me some excuse.
I put my shoes and tie on while I was waiting for the cab,
The lingering uncertainty, of cold cereal and toast.

You don’t remind me of that girl I knew in Pittsburgh,
She helped me find myself, then left me anyway.
Now everyone I meet has got a pretty heavy suitcase,
Waiting for the last plane out,
Sleeping on a speeding train,
Sailing on a sea of doubt,
And waking up alone anyway.

Can you be my liferaft,
Draw back the curtains on each morning of this winter,
It only hurts when you laugh,
When you cry there’s no uncertainty,
You are my liferaft.

You left me wide awake this morning,
But I don’t need your sympathy, or obvious remorse.
Well I can smell the coffee you left me burning like a clue,
A ticket on the last plane out,
A passport with a different name,
Strand me on a sea of doubt,
And wake me up alone anyway.

Can you be my liferaft,
Draw back the curtains on each morning of this winter,
It only hurts when you laugh,
When you cry there’s no uncertainty,
You are my liferaft.

Can you be my liferaft
Draw back the curtains on each morning of this winter,
It only hurts when I laugh,
When I cry there’s no uncertainty,
You are my liferaft.
