i chain smoke cigarettes
while i pace around this tomb
i think i'll set my bed on fire
i don't wanna sleep alone
anymore
i've gone through all the channels
of course there's nothin' on
i turn up the radio
seems they only play our songs
anymore
only me to keep me company
and i know everything i have to say
man i've heard it all before
it's always all the same

      and as i pace around
      i realize i've changed
      since you've been gone
      i'm just not the same
      i never did understand
      how i became your friend
      or how i became your man
      before you went away
      and i'm afraid i've changed
      i am not the same
      would you still fall in love
      with the man i am today?

if you were here what would you say?
that i'm losin' weight and fading away?
i need to eat some more
well i'm livin' off of caffiene
tonight i'm goin' back to Nashville
to relive another daydream
we'll exchange vows in that motel
where river phoenix filmed this thing called love
our honeymoon of roadtrips
you'll start feeling homesick
to sit atop the sand dunes
and listen to the waves break
yea man i know all about homesick too

     and as i drift away
     laying on the couch
     i realize i've changed
     i'm just not the same
     i'd love to understand
     how i became your friend
     how i became your man
     so i could take you by your hand
     and do those things again
     cause i'm afraid i've changed
     i know i'm not the same
     i wonder if you'd even fall in love
     with the man i am today...

Yep, you are singing the blues in this one. Sorry if it is from your real life tune.
Nice to meet you, anyway.
