Lyrics:

For September Fridays that all felt the same
Too many games that I wasn't playing
With ash on the carpet where she talked to me
I didn't notice what she tried to see

It's cold outside and there's so little left to decide

She said I'm twenty-five today
Pull me in to your world or push me away
I don't need to talk and I don't want a friend
I just need somebody that don't mean a thing
Twenty-five today
All of the signs are pointing this way
I don't need a shoulder I've done nothing wrong
And by the light it's OK if you're gone

For walls that just glitter and don't say a word
For friends that go blind when their vision gets blurred
Those hands in my pockets had nothing to sell
But she closed her eyes and she started to tell

Hey it's not for keeps and I'll put all those whispers to sleep

She said I'm twenty-five today
Pull me in to your world or push me away
I don't need to talk and I don't want a friend
I just need somebody that don't mean a thing
Twenty-five today
All of the signs are pointing this way
I don't need a shoulder I've done nothing wrong
And by the light it's OK if you're gone

The lights played around and the air drifted in
I didn't know where I should begin
We reached the streets where the cold hit my bones
While I walked home alone
