  • It's 8pm
    I walk home from a hit that I never really felt within
    Go home go to sleep
    Be a dreamer
    Don't be a thief

    And I act surprised
    I met a blind man
    Who probably could have seen her eyes
    And I don't know where he came from
    Or where she goes
    Nobody knows

    Now I sleep in the park
    Out there in the cold
    You won't need my jacket
    In another mans home
    And I'll get used to the feel
    What it is to live
    She won't need my jacket
    Cause she's staying in with him

    Turn the night into day
    Let the sun hit the freeze
    And I wish it'd all melt away
    City life of a drinker
    And battle scars for a thinker

    Now I sleep in the park
    Out there in the cold
    You won't need my jacket
    In another mans home
    And I'll get used to the feel
    What it is to live
    She won't need my jacket
    Cause she's staying in with him

    There were times when it was broken
    There were times when it was saved
    There were times when we were holy
    When we were different
    When we behaved

    Now I sleep in the park
    Out there in the cold
    You won't need my jacket
    In another mans home
    And I'll get used to the feel
    What it is to live
    She won't need my jacket
    Cause she's staying in with him Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
