Track 4 (of 5) from the 2008 Hopeless EP


Well just between, you and me,
I don't know what I'm doing here.
In your room, close to you,
full of shit and free beer.

Well my brother, the bartender,
I tip him well and I drink for free.
He takes good care of me,
he takes good care of me,
either way I'm here.

I'm a bicycle,
I'm too tired to ride home.
If it's okay with you,
can I take off these shoes and stay the night?

Well just between, you and me,
this thing between you and me,
may not be anything worth singing about.
Or it might be just what I need.
Someone to take my mind off things,
at the end of a long day.
Someone to take my pants off me,
at the end of a long night,
either way we're here.

We're two bicycles,
ridden too tired to know,
which one of us two is dumb enough to choose,
the other as a lover.
