  • Nobody wants to sit next to me
    Just a loner on the back of the bus
    There’s a chair to the left of me
    But everyone would rather be stood up

    I’ve been away for nearly 100 days
    The bar of soap and me have filed for divorce
    There’s makeup smeared across my T-shirt
    When I arrive it’s welcomed with dirty looks

    So here’s to staying awake too long
    I’m drinking just because it’s there
    My feet are buried beneath bottles
    And I found pink sick in my hair

    Everyone thinks I’m looking after myself
    But I woke up in this shirt
    My eyes have glued themselves together
    And it hurts to see an empty purse

    I’ve been away for nearly 100 days
    My bank account and I have filed for divorce
    Every week I struggle to pay my way
    Hours stuck inside the house leave me bored

    So here’s to staying awake too long
    I’m drinking just because it’s there
    My feet are buried beneath bottles
    And I found pink sick in my hair

    I can't remember the last time I fell asleep
    It's been days since I've brushed my teeth
    This is my time to shine
    Maybe I'll stop being so bored

    So here’s to staying awake too long
    I’m drinking just because it’s there
    My feet are buried beneath bottles
    And I found pink sick in my hair Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
