lyrics

An open window, wind blows in
And I'm out to somewhere else
Friends inform me on what happened today
It's getting late, but I don't mind
'cause I'm here to stay all night

There's no need to get out of bed
Make some coffee have some bread
A kiss goodbye and then off to work
Where everybody talks about the weather
And whose favorite team did better
Making pointless calls, writing pointless letters

Waking up by the sound of people laughing at me
A drink too many, a smooth move that wasn't smooth at all
Which comes into my mind right when I fall

Passed out drunk onto the floor
My key just doesn't fit the door anymore
Or at least I think so
No more alcohol for me
What a bright idea

I sometimes try to stupefy myself with intellect
But a hangover is all that's ever left
They told me college years should be the best time of my life
But I want a wife and a job from nine to five

So I'll have to get out of bed
Make some coffee have some bread
A kiss goodbye and I'm off to work
Where we all talk about the weather
And whose favorite team did better
Making pointless calls, writing pointless letters

We're writing pointless letters

So I'll just get out of my bed
Make some coffee have some bread
A kiss goodbye and I'm off to work
Where we all talk about the weather
And whose favorite team did better
Making pointless calls, writing pointless

Or should we instead be writing songs
Sitting on the balcony
My guitar and me
