Brick

Lyrics

Six a m day after Christmas

 

I throw some clothes on in the dark

The smell of cold

Car seat is freezing

The world is sleeping

I am numb

 

Up the stairs to her apartment

She is balled up on the couch

Her mom and dad went down to Charlotte

They're not home to find us out

And we drive

Now that I have found someone

I'm feeling more alone

Than I ever have before

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly

Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly

 

They call her name at seven-thirty

I pace around the parking lot

And I walk down to buy her flowers

And sell some gifts that I got

Can't you see

It's not me you're dying for

Now she's feeling more alone

Then she ever has before

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly

Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly

 

As weeks went by

It showed that she was not fine

They told me "Son it's time to tell the truth " and

She broke down and I broke down

Cause I was tired of lying

 

Driving back to her apartment

For the moment we're alone

Yeah she's alone

And I'm alone

Now I know it

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly

Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly
