  • You're sleeping night and day
    How d'you do it?
    Me I am wide awake
    Feeling defeated

    I say your name
    I say I'm sorry
    I know it's not working
    I'm no holiday
    It's nobody's fault
    No guilty party
    We just got nothing
    Nothing left to say

    Another year gets away
    Another summer of love
    I don't know why I care
    We miss it every summer

    I say your name
    I say I'm sorry
    I'm the one doing this
    There's no other way
    It's nobody's fault
    No guilty party
    I just got nothing, nothing left to say

    It all, all catches up to me
    It all, all catches up to me all the time

    I say your name
    I say I'm sorry
    I know it's not working, I'm no holiday
    It's nobody's fault
    No guilty party
    We just got nothing, nothing left to say

    I say your name
    I say I'm sorry
    I'm the one doing this, there's no other way
    It's nobody's fault
    No guilty party
    I just got nothing, nothing left to say

    It all, all just catches up to me
    It all, all catches up to me all the time Writer/s: Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, Matthew D. Berninger
