Lyrics:

I've been here since noon
the room it was destroyed
as you put your anger out on display tonight
and I failed to fill this void
If I sign my name to you
would you go and leave me dry
like all the other girls that go out tonight
and then come home in disguise

as the day ends am I still on your mind
is there water in your eyes as you drape down your bedside

I can't face myself in the mirror
because I lied
I've been wondering through these sheets of cold
the bed breaks where I lie
Now time is just leading me on
my words are empty tonight
you're somewhere with a bottle of wine
and your lips are sealed tight

when it rains
do you still see my face
through the windshield in the parking lot
down by the interstate

I'm not man enough to make you lonely
so won't you dry your crying eyes
and if it's me that's you fear
won't you turn the lights low
and lay right next to me dear

Are you angry tonight
cause your face is stoned and shaking
you're dressed down just to see me go
your body is done drinking
I'm still feeling the wrath
of the last man who did you wrong
my hopes are dashed and faded
as you question whether we belong

Are the bags under my eyes
are they from you
I will be the kindness in your dreams
if you just let me through

I'm not man enough to make you lonely
so won't you dry your crying eyes
and if it's me that's you fear
won't you turn the lights low
and lay right next to me dear
