Party Of One

Album: By The Way, I Forgive You (2018)
  • Waiter send this to the table, the party of one
    The only other lonely soul in this place
    And so you're finishing up your coffee
    But then where you're gonna run?
    Where'd you get that look on your face?

    You should always let the sun go down on your anger
    Let it burn you to sleep
    And bring you closer to the danger
    To surrender and retreat
    Sing your sad soul to sleep

    I loved you the first time I saw you
    And you know I love you still
    And I am tired
    But I am yours

    Don't even think about your freedom
    Or taking that flight
    Or going back upon your promise
    After fighting for the right
    Because your eggshells and your "I" statements
    And your weaponized words
    Are paper tigers now

    Oh your constant overthinkin' and your secretive drinkin'
    Are making you more and more alone
    And, girl, you can slam the door behind you
    It ain't ever gonna close
    Because when you're home, you're already home

    I am tired
    I am tired, tired

    I loved you the first time I saw you
    And you know I love you still
    I loved you the first time I saw you
    And you know I love you still

    I don't wanna be right anymore
    Lord, I don't wanna fight anymore
    I'm not taking your side anymore
    Oh, I am tired
    I am not my own
    And I am leavin'
    But I'm coming home

    'Cause I am yours, I am yours, I am yours, I am yours, I am yours
    I am yours, I am yours, I am yours, I am yours, I am yours Writer/s: Brandi M. Carlile, Phillip John Hanseroth, Timothy Jay Hanseroth
