about

Wake up in the morning, and there's no hot water. You want a cup of coffee, but it's out of order.

lyrics

Looking for a reason
The memories recalled
Lay ripe and for the picking
Inside your dresser drawer
Beside your favorite t-shirt
The one that’s washed and worn
And frayed along the edges
Like a page from your passport

(Rock salt on the first day of summer)

Rely on something borrowed
And wake up feeling blue
Searching far and wide
For something new

Looking for a reason
I’m searching for the light
Any type of season
Any time of night
I packed my bags and left there
But now I’m looking for my friend
There isn’t much to see here
That I would recommend

Rely on something borrowed
And wake up feeling blue
Searching far and wide
For something new
All this indecision
And nights I’ve come unglued
Might seem miles away
When I’m with you

We only said goodbye
To come back later
Held tight and kept on keeping on
There’s a picture it hangs on your refrigerator
And reminds me why I’ve been hanging out this long
