  • from an unmade bed
    I got no reason to live
    No reason to be dead
    Those unnamed blues are with me today
    I got no reason to leave
    No reason to stay

    Sun in the night, dark in the day
    In a January thaw, frosted in May

    Searching for salvation
    in a stranger's eyes
    The sooner I sink,
    the sooner I'll rise

    So honey, don't you try to analyze it
    Just tell me why's it that
    Babies are born happy
    though sometimes they've got to cry
    Babies got that sweet contentment
    So why is it that you and I
    Get no relief?
    Got no belief?
    Steal like a thief through our days
    feeling lost and alone
    when baby we were born happy
    Where'd we lose that
    sweet contentment?

    Flyin' to an island
    on a silver plane
    But we just
    can't escape
    the growin' pains
    'Cause the ghost
    and the smoke
    of a nightmare past
    will be chasing us
    down twice as fast
    So honey don't it
    hurt to realize it?
    we can't disguise it
