I sat on my couch just looking out
As my neighbors gazed from afar
The windows showed signs of a life lived alone
But not that hard

I putzted about my day throwing leaflets away
Tryin' to clear a little space inside my room
Tryin' to clear a little space inside my mind
For whatever it consumes

But waiting on the good time's as stale as it seems
Sitting on a dead stump, trying to grow my dreams
Life doesn't work like in the movies

And gas prices are steep, and last night I couldn't sleep
'Cause I spent all our money on the rent
And I said something to you that was true, and I wish it wasn't

The sun goes down and the lights come on
I pick up my drink and dance across the yard
Life is easy but living's hard

Well this town used to be cheap
And I never want to sleep
Not sure I'm happy anymore
But I'm pushing at these edges and finding what this life is for

Break your ambitions from their box
Lend 'em to the lonely and the vacant
Let nothing stop you at all
We're going to be the ones to make it
