I started writing this song sometime in July or August 2011 i think, but i finished it on 11 September 2011.


I'm walking home through the bottles and the fag ends
It's nearly four in the morning once again
You never know so you've got to party when you can
But still, you know, you've got to get some sleep

Close your eyes
As the Sun is waking up

You're never here but that's okay because it's only
Times like these when i'm down here on my own
And time moves so fast that it never catches up to me
And that's why i never find the time to get some sleep

Close your eyes
As the Sun is waking up

When i get home at half past four in the morning
I'll have to go to sleep all by myself


from Better Out Than In, released December 20, 2011
