Been waking up mornings,
Bolts in my throat
Think I've done all the talking,
Now I just sit and croak

Seems only appropriate
To try feed you a smile,
But I keep on choking
Let's get away for awhile

Lover, I'm pleading with you,
I just don't know what to do

Gonna get in your car,
You know it isn't too far
Gonna drive towards the calm,
See if the world still holds calm

And I know you've gotta work,
You ain't getting no help
But I can pay your way, at least for a few days,
So don't worry yourself

Lover, I'm pleading with you,
I just don't know what to do

I don't talk to those people anymore,
That's not why I'm going
I don't talk to those people anymore
Just need a chance to get home,
But life keeps on going,
'Til we're all set in stone

You tell me you're busy
Think I already knew
Punching in, clocking off,
Dressing down, scrubbing up,
Doing what you've got to do

And I know I can take it,
Though I'm thinner than ply
Cities just shake me,
But I can just shut my eyes

Lover, I'm pleading with you,
I just don't know what to do
