"like the saying goes I'll just dust myself off"
I realize I could give up / I have no one to sing of / and I’m scared / but the bags hanging round my door / and his kong on the kitchen floor / have filled by cup with love / just because I’m wrong doesn’t mean that I should stop / I know I could be happier but that’s just tough luck / ‘cause this song’s making my dog cry / and I think I should be by your side / but I’m not // chorus: and it took me a while to know / that the worst place for me to go / is to your place when I’m feeling this way / and the light shining in my face / as I fall asleep to the taste of what it feels like to be alone / will keep me warm / warm / ‘till someone comes home // like the saying goes I’ll just dust myself off / remind my heart of everything that I’ve never lost / then I’ll make myself dinner / and wish I was thinner / and hold it against you that you loved her / and maybe I will be better off / but these core feelings won’t subside / ‘till I convince myself that I tried / to come to terms with a fate I can’t win / ‘cause the truth lying in the stars / has made it apparent that I’m not yours / did the fact that I loved you make me lose a friend? //chorus// ‘till you come home
