I'll pick you up in the morning and meet you at the station,
outside the dilettante cafe.
And you can tell me how you spent the night
sipping bourbon in the candlelight,
waiting for the house to get quiet.
Now you've packed your bags with your most convenient rags.
It'll be a while before he notices you're gone.
'Cause he's out again with some new and nameless friends
as another drunken night turns to dawn.
This is how you'll start your new life.
Put a hundred miles between what's wrong and right.
Pulling at the seams, all the lies and the in betweens.
He don't deserve to hear you say goodbye.
The house looks small from outside the door.
No, you've never ever seen it from this view before.
And this is where I'll pick you up, outside the old cafe
and I won't trouble you with loads of conversation.
No I won't persuade, or ask you to explain how this became the first day of your new life.
