Ohh, the party's kicked up a few notches
Look at us getting loose
She leans back against the wall and she watches
Tugging her collar like it might be a noose

And everyones tied to their thing
To their past or their drink
Or the date that they bring
I just get tired all of sudden taking it in

And I want to lay my head down on you
Because you're the only solid thing in this room
A room full of changes, strangers, illusion, confusion
I speak from my heart but I'm not really sure if it's true
I wanna lay my head down on you

Ohh, consider waste, too much time planning
Or you'll get the rug ripped out
And the only way you'll be satisfied
Is learning to live without

But some plan for the kingdom of heaven
And some take their chances and bet lucky seven
I don't know what to believe
I just show up and breathe anymore

And I wanna lay my head down on you
Because you're the only solid thing in this room
A room full of dressers, professors, lookers, hookers
If I don't get out, I'll do something I don't wanna do
And I wanna lay my head down on you

Was it so long ago
That we sat and talked in your car?
Your things were all packed
And the place you were headed, not really that far

Years later I think
That I would have been much more alive
To have taken you up on your offer
And taken that drive

Ohh, well, everything that's come before us
Leads us to where we are now
And thats simple, I know so why can't I let go of the feeling
That I'm lost somehow

I'm just a ghost looking in
Out of my own life just visiting
In search of a body to have
And to hold and to keep and to sleep

I wanna lay my head down on you
Because you're the only solid thing in this room
A room full of missed chance, slow dance, cold fate, heartache
I showed up for a party and saw my life story full view
And I wanna lay my head down on you
