Die Laughing – lyrics

I said I’d come by
Right before the elements
Conspired to antagonize
The air was so grey
That I could taste it
Well let’s face it
I wasn’t much of a prize
I looked to the skies
And they exploded
You know it always rains on better days
I rode in so late but I found it.

I let myself in
With a coat hanger that I stole from a donation bin
And there you were, asleep on your
Second hand couch
That only pulls out
Once in every three tries
I pictured your eyes
Yeah, they were closed
But I know what colour they are
And if they could see me now
They’d probably die laughing.

There’s that point in every storm
Where you’re so damn wet you just give in
You’re so cold, soaked through your clothes
That you don’t care about the state you arrive in

I shook out my skin
In the shadow of the extra moon
that I had just let in
And you were waking up from all the crashing and the howling
My heart still pounding
I left my clothing to dry
Took your hand in mine
And felt the shake
That thunder makes
We waited all night
For the lights to go out.

There’s that point in every storm
Where you’re so damn wet you just give in
You’re so cold, soaked through your clothes
That you don’t care about the state you arrive in

You don’t care.

You just give in.
