lyrics

TUESDAYS

Step into my low-rent life
Leave your high hopes at the door
I promise in a little while
You’ll wonder what you came here for
See me turning gold to lead
Behold my inverse alchemy
At the altar of my unmade bed
We’ll make from love a malady

I played Tuesdays, mostly to nobody
And you waited up for me
Playing Tuesdays chasing a fading dream
And you believed in me

I sobered up, it didn’t suit
It wouldn’t change things anyhow
I am weak, the pain acute
Salvation just seems pointless now
They say there’s nothing that time can’t heal
Tonight that is not how it feels
But it can’t be me and it can’t be you
Who comes to help the other through

I played Tuesdays, mostly to nobody
And you waited up for me
Playing Tuesdays chasing a fading dream
And you believed in me

I’ll be alright, I’ll rise again
They gave me stuff to numb the pain
And how are you since it all went down
I hope your friends have rallied around
The rules of love are so unfair
That in these long nights of despair
But it can’t be me and it can’t be you
Who comes to help the other through
