Things didn't work out the way you had planned it
Things fell apart at the seams
What's yours is what you took with you
And what you have has shattered their dreams

And now you're cold and sleepy
Christ, how did it come to this
Hold on to those you thought were your loved ones
They'll be the ones you miss

And now you're standing at the station
Tryin' to take what I ain't got to give
Oh and I'm so sorry Charlie
I've got my own life to live
Just call your friends at college
Wonder why you didn't stay
And my boss is coming down soon Chuck
He's drunk so you can't stay
No, you can't stay

You did nothing to deserve this
God didn't treat you square
Oh it all slipped through your fingers
And it all seems so unfair

And your girlfriend, she's in high school
She says she loves you a lot
Lord knows she can't support you
So you better sell more pot

And now you're standing at the station
Tryin' to take what I ain't got to give
Oh and I'm so sorry Charlie
I've got my own life to live
So you just call your friends at college
Wonder why you didn't stay
And my boss is coming down soon Chuck
He's drunk and you can't stay
No, you can't stay

Sorry Charlie -- Sorry Charlie -- Oww!
