A song about the worst day in the worst year of your life. Also, the first single off the Royal Wigs' eponymous debut album.



I can never say what needs to be said
Can't seem to get my lazy ass up out of bed
Walk around the apartment and all of my plants are dead
Can't seem to forget all the thing you said before you left...

Like a lover with a broken heart
The world keeps letting me down
Like an old car that never starts
Can't drive us out of this town
Like a brain that ain't very smart
My head keeps spinning around
It's coming down...

I hate my job
My boss hates me
I ain't making no money and I ain't got security
Walk around the apartment and all I got is memories
Can't seem to forget all the things you never said to me...


Did you mean all the terrible things that you said?
That we're better off alone? Maybe I'm better off dead?
Can't you see? You belong with me.
I'm begging you please: don't go.
