I once had a friend
They found him in a car
A hose to the window
And the motor running hot
Seems he couldn't take it
The rhetoric of life
Someone found him naked
With a note right by his side
A note right by his side

He can't take it back
Neither can I
No, neither can I

Mommy and daddy
I've borrowed the car
To sleep on the floor
I'm sorry so much
For bringing my own living hell to
Your door
Thanks for all the flowers
At the ringside seat
Thanks for nothing everyone
The prayers were too weak

This is the way
It happens all the time
Can you pay attention
To everyone that cries
Remember you can make it through
And make it new
Only if you try
You gotta try

Cause you can't take it back
Neither can I
No, neither can I

Mommy and daddy
I've borrowed the car
To sleep on the floor
I'm sorry so much
For bringing my own living hell to
Your door
But things had gotten heavy
Everything was deep
Nothing really mattered
So I just went to sleep
I just went to sleep
And I can't take it back
I won't try

I won't try
I won't try
I won't try
I won't try

Mommy and daddy
I've borrowed the car
To sleep on the floor
Mommy and daddy
I'm sorry to tell you, life is a bore
Don't send any flowers
Don't send anymore
Cause I can't give no more
