lyrics

Listen to me, Marlon
Don't go back to sleep
There's a darkness in me forming
But I've got promises left to keep
I lost you at the bottom
Of life's great mystery
Learned lessons and then forgot 'em
Pity lessons don't come for free

They laugh at me behind my back
And pity me to my face
The faster runner on the track
Wanders away from the race

I know you don't really love me
But I don't know if you're even thinking of me
I know you don't really love me
But I don't know if you're even thinking of me

I didn't want to write a breakup song
I didn't want to breakup
I toss and turn now all night long
Guess I'll never wake up
So, listen to me, Marlon
Don't go back to sleep
There a darkness in me forming
And a crowd gathering in the street
