Monday morning waking up
Still too numb to speak
Another night staring at the wall

Last night's conversation
Knocked me off my feet
I guess today I fall

I wish that we could agree
To look the other way
Be careful of the things we do
And watch the things we say

Maybe then we'd get somewhere
We've never been before
But what's the use in fighting
When you know you've lost the war

Walked the streets of New Orleans
Shirt soaked to my skin
Through the mess of yesterday's parade

A thousand times a day
I think of calling you again
But I come to my senses instead

Every time we walk away
We lose a little time
Pretending to each other
Everything is fine

After all the lies I use
To get myself to sleep
I still wake up to the promises
I know we'll never keep

Say you don't see what's wrong
Every night lasts so long
I know I do, you're already gone

I wonder should I get up
I would but what's the point
When something's gone
It's gone for good

Maybe I could look away
Back to where we used to be
One more time I wish I could

Never mind the reasons
That tore us all apart
We've both done things
I know we can't defend

What's the use in tracing?
It all back to the start
There'll still be something
Missing in the end

I wish that we could find
The words to look the other way
Be careful of the things we do
And watch the things we say

Maybe then we'd get somewhere
We've never been before
But what's the use in fighting
When you know you've lost the war

Say you don't see what's wrong
Every night lasts so long
I know I do, you're already gone
I know you're already gone
