Friday Clothes

lyrics

Well it’s another shattered morning
I’m stuck between a rock and a headache
I’m a shambles
And my lover wants to move to a new place

I guess by now I should know how it goes
When I wake up on a Monday in my Friday clothes

We went out on Friday
And hit all our usual bars
You were wearing that red dress
And showing the world your particular charms
Midnight came and I got me some gear to keep me in the zone
Next thing you know I wake up on this couch and I’m back on my own

I guess by now I should know how it goes
When I wake up on a Monday in my Friday clothes

When I was a teen my mind was in such a bind
I thought I’d find the meaning to life in a pipe or in suicide
But then I fell for you, and my love, you turned the tide

Well the last time you left I found the going abit to rough
So when you came back to me I cleaned up
For about a month
I cut back on my drinking and I quit smoking cigarettes
Maybe that’s why I go so hard on everything else I could get

We were riding the tidal wave of Friday night
When you took my hands and you whispered it was time to stop hiding behind the lies
You started to cry and said I’d turned into a man you didn’t recognize
I was caught between the devil and your broken eyes
When you said our love was just victim of the pipe

Well I’m lying on this couch and the boss is starting to call
But I need to write you this message and love it’s gonna take my all

I guess by now I should know how it goes
When I wake up on a Monday with my head in my hands
And the words you said sit hard in my heart
Please don’t leave
But maybe this is how it goes
