Nearly Midnight, Honolulu

Album: The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight... (2013)
  • Hey little kid
    That I saw at the bus stop one day
    It was nearly midnight in Honolulu
    We were waiting for the shadow
    To take us to the aero plane
    When your mother said, your mother said
    Like I couldn't hear her

    She said 'Get the fuck away from me'
    Why don't you ever shut up?
    Get the fuck away from me oh, oh

    Well I just wanna say that it happened
    'Cause one day when you ask yourself
    Did it really happen?
    You won't believe it
    But yes it did
    And I'm sorry, and I'm sorry
    'Cause it happens every day
    They won't believe you
    When you tell them
    They won't believe you
    When you say
    My mother she did not love me
    My mother, she did not love me

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

    Some days it feel like a cartoon
    And people will rush to make excuses for you
    You'll hear yourself complain
    But don't you ever shut up
    Please can have your say
    'Cause I still love you
    Even if I don't see you againWriter/s: Neko Case
