lyrics

Put together shirt and tie
Showed up an hour shy
And I was feeling alone

Room’s full of leprechauns
All holding microphones
And I was thinking of you

Oh the voices in my head ring out
Better you than me is what they say
Oh the colours fade away to white
I’m standing on the edge again

Arrangements made with severed hands
String me up where I stand
And I was thinking out loud

Will you fix me another one
And tell the band to play the next song
Cause I was thinking of home
Oh I’m just thinking of home

Oh the voices in my head ring out
Better you than me is what they say
Oh the colours fade away to white
I’m standing on the edge again
