Nobody's home I'm feeling rotten
I turn off my phone so I can be forgotten
Every moment I feel I'm wasting away
Every moment, every day
Every morning I wake up with nothing to say
Every morning I feel gray
Nighttime is here I feel entitled
To savor a beer a bosom in a bottle
Every night I think I might be living to die
Every night I wonder why
Every morning I wake up thinking of you
Every morning I feel blue
Would it matter more if I didn't care
I could be so sure if I wasn't there
I could settle for your reasonable doubt
Don't you say no more I'll figure it out
Curiously I can see my problems
Staring at me face up from the bottom
Every morning I would try to get out bed
When I could not lift my head
Sleeping to the sounds of words I never said
I should have lived I dreamed instead
But every gray blue morning
I feel my strength returning
Like I might be made of man
And now my blood is burning
With every lesson learned and
I'll do everything I can
To make it matter more if I wasn't there
I could be so sure if I didn't care
Like a metaphor your reasonable doubt
Don't you say no more I've figured it out
