Copy all your clothes
You don't know what you want
And I'll be standing by
You don't have to lie on the floor
Standing still but time
You know we have luck
Farther than we stand
You don't have a plan

And I'll just keep
All my sleep

Sink into regret
And pause all of your dreams
Sit and stare at walls
Think about the fall

And I'll just keep
All my sleep
