On the Nights You Stay Home

Album: Hard Settle, Ain't Troubled (2016)
  • On the nights you stay home
    I don't even go downtown
    So don't worry about it
    Don't want to know what I'm doing now

    And on the nights you stay home
    I don't run into your friends
    Had a party in Parkdale
    At a bar in the east end

    C'mon girl, get your head upright
    C'mon girl, you can lose sleep tonight
    I want to tell you about something that happened
    I won't tell you about anything that happens tonight

    Girl, get your head upright
    C'mon girl, well tell me some other time
    I know you wonder if I sleep alone
    On the nights you stay

    And on the nights you stay home
    I don't even look at my phone
    You need time alone
    Well me, I guess I don't
    And on the nights you stay home
    Nobody says your name
    Nobody talks about you
    Everything's exactly the same

    Girl, get your head upright
    C'mon girl, you can lose sleep tonight
    I want to tell you about something that happened
    I won't tell you about anything that happens tonight

    Girl, get your head upright
    C'mon girl, well tell me some other time
    I know you wonder if I sleep alone
    On the nights you stay

    On the nights you stay

    C'mon girl, get your head upright
    C'mon girl, you can lose sleep tonight
    I want to tell you about something that happened
    I won't tell you about anything that happens tonight

    Girl, get your head upright
    C'mon girl, well tell me some other time
    I know you wonder if I sleep alone
    On the nights you stay

    On the nights you stay home
