Woke up and for the first time, the animals were gone
It's left this house empty now, not sure if I belong
Yesterday, you asked me to write you a pleasant song
I'll do my best now but you've been gone for so long

The window's open now and the winter settles in
We'll call it Christmas when the adverts begin
I love your depression and I love your double chin
I love 'most everything you bring to this offering

Oh, I know that I've left you
In places of despair
Oh, I know that I love you
So please throw down your hair

At night, I trip without you
And hope I don't wake up
'Cause waking up without you
Is like drinking from an empty cup

Woke up and for the first, time the animals were gone
Our clocks are ticking now, so before our time is gone
We could get a house and some boxes on the lawn
We could make babies and accidental songs

I know I've been a liar and I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it but I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes, still all I see is you

Oh, I know I've left you
In places of despair
Oh, I know that I love you
So please throw down your hair

At night, I trip without you
And hope that I don't wake up
'Cause waking up without you
Is like drinking from an empty cup
