[00:27.030]My baby left me yesterday,
[00:32.460]Packed her bags and went away, yeah.
[00:37.650]High heels on the carpet,
[00:40.170]took my keys and craved her name into my car seat.
[00:47.430]And that’s the last one I let push me around,
[00:52.530]I’ve said it before but I mean it now, eh.
[00:57.970]Get me out this city, I just need to clear my mind.
[01:04.830]We left this evening, give ’em twenty dollars for some gas in Boston,
[01:12.630]grab a bite but now we’re taking off, we’re taking off, oh.
[01:25.130]When we got to Melrose, fifteen nights of April,
[01:29.890]We just drank our sorrows, talked about the day we’ll have it all,
[01:39.770]We’ll have it all.
[01:46.330]One shot, one shot for my sorrows, oh yeah.
[01:58.300]Power up the white noise, maybe I’ll forget her deep into the morning.
[02:07.790]And right inside this yellow house,
[02:13.290]I’m reading CD’s on the couch,
[02:17.950]but it’s better than being stranded,
[02:20.710]nothing but myself in a studio apartment.
[02:45.520]We left this evening, give ’em twenty dollars for some gas in Boston,
[02:53.420]grab a bite but now we’re taking off, we’re taking off, oh.
[03:05.310]When we got to Melrose, fifteen nights of April,
[03:11.040]We just drank our sorrows, talked about the day we’ll have it all,
[03:21.000]We’ll have it all.
[03:27.650]I don’t think I’m sleeping tonight,
[03:29.630]Something ’bout my stomach doesn’t feel right,
[03:32.040]What you left in my chest on the left side,
[03:34.250]Where your he– nah, **** it.
[03:35.920]Time to take a drive.
[03:37.340]Night skies got me feeling like Bruce Wing,
[03:39.690]’Cept all I got is a pocket of loose change.
[03:42.000]Head and heart got me thinking that I’m too strange.
[03:44.210]Well maybe I’m different.
[03:45.810]Word to two chainz, two lanes,
[03:48.150]Drift grip the wood crane,
[03:49.600]Lookin’ at the exit signs, but it’s your name (damn).
[03:52.190]On some purple rain ****, feelin’ like Prince,
[03:54.750]gotta go and change my name chiz, same ****, ain’t it?
[03:57.590]Yeah, I know I don’t seem complacent,
[03:59.650]Got enough on my chest but my heart’s still vacant.
[04:01.810]And I can’t take it,
[04:02.930]My love is unreciprocated,
[04:04.530]I’ve been through enough without ever gettin’ the payment.
[04:06.780]But it’s harder to heal than it is to endure,
[04:09.140]There’s only so much that the liquor can cure,
[04:11.660]And all that liquor that’s poured gave you a head of a tornado
[04:14.590]of every memory that had you trippin’ before.
[04:16.510]All that Christian Dior denim, Louis Vuitton leather,
[04:19.460]led em a late night, safe flight and good weather.
[04:22.090]Ain’t enough to make me feel better,
[04:23.870]Ain’t enough to make me forget all those nights in early December.
[04:26.920]I think I was dreamin’,
[04:28.320]But now I know I ain’t been sleepin’.
[04:29.820]And some of these days, these feelings stoppin’ me from eating,
[04:32.070]The pit of my stomach is heavy.
[04:33.550]I guess that’s how it feels when you start to forget me.
[04:36.670]I apologize for not caring for myself,
[04:39.270]I’ve never known anything else than putting myself after everyone else,
[04:42.240]And that ***** me up, it’s true.
[04:44.660]These late nights really are new,
[04:46.760]And there’s so little I can do besides drive.
[04:49.100]Lay awake think about where you layin’ tonight,
[04:51.810]And fantasize about us living life in paradise,
[04:54.200]In a warm place where we never really have to die,
[04:56.950]But life ain’t kind, we can’t live fantasy,
[04:59.520]I just need to hear that you’re maintaining sanity
[05:02.180]Cuz it’s more important to me that you’re doing alright
[05:04.690]Than the fact that I’m not sleepin’ tonight.
