Hard at Nothing

lyrics

Days and weeks without a change
Woke this morning, smelled like rain
Saw the ocean, seemed out of place
Don’t forget to leave a light on for me
I’m on a roll and feeling quite
Put out that fire in your closet
And dress for dinner I’m coming home
We’ll go someplace that we can be alone

Nights I put myself to sleep
Days with nothing in my drink
These days, they don’t change
These days, they don’t change
I’ll be the one to change
I’ll be the one to change
These days all stay the same

Older now, I'm feeling nervous
I know you love me but you don’t deserve this
Aimless is as aimless does
I’m having trouble with my thoughts
You can use your eyes to peel of these clothes
When I’l too tired to do it for myself
Dress me up like a paper doll
Just watch the cuts and clean me when you’re done

Nights I put myself to sleep
Days with nothing in my drink
These days, they don’t change
These days, they don’t change
I’ll be the one to change
I’ll be the one to change
These days all stay the same

This place is dangerous and beautiful
I guess that’s just how nature is
I want to stay and drink my fill
I want to stay and drink my fill

Nights I put myself to sleep
Days with nothing in my drink
These days, they don’t change
These days, they don’t change
I’ll be the one to change
I’ll be the one to change
These days all stay the same

about

Dustin Drennen Noxon, montana

Songs and poems from western Montana: a little folk and americana, a little Texas country, maybe more cowpunk, clear love of the West, especially the Northwest, an affinity for good beer, some romance and wreckage, some creepy tales, a general distrust for the establishment, a hopeful outlook all the same. ... more
