  • I'm growing out my hair like it was when I was single
    It was longer than I'd known you
    I had no money then. I had no worries then at all
    But with such a high standard of living
    I just feel like I am dying
    I would start an argument but you can barely even talk

    But there is always good reason for your silence
    You have to take care of some business
    So I fix your plate and I stay out of the way
    And you will stay like that forever
    Right in front of your computer
    You'll look up one day but you won't recognize me

    So now you want to change
    You read a letter from a lawyer
    Want to take me out to dinner
    You want to bury me under a mound of shopping bags
    Like it would really make a difference
    Or make up for your disinterest
    I'm a bill you pay. I'm a contract you can't break

    And it's like I'm under water
    Or on an endless escalator
    I just go up and up but I don't ever reach the top
    And it reads just like the Bible
    Twenty centuries of scandal
    I guess it all depends on how you interpret it

    The word is love, the word is loss
    The words are damaged goods

    That's what I am.
    A lifetime gets chalked up to an experience
    Coincidence. we are chained to the events
    That's it. Lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC
