first to leave the party; last one off the train
take a deep breath as you start your life again
the discord on the doorstep; a tune in borrowed keys
and the long wait for release

five to two
and i can't let this stupid night go
it's nothing new
familiar as any feeling i know
empty failure's staring at me
there must be
better ways to be unhappy

back when i was younger, before the world stepped in
i was what i might be one day. now i'm only what i've been
and the things undone that keep you living the same old way
keep tomorrow from today
