lyrics

Bar On 63rd

It’s December 21st, and all the lights are in the windows
I’m singing I’ll Be Home For Christmas at the bar on 63rd
They put their 5’s and 10s in, they ask for Brown Eyed Girl
Well this brown-eyed girl will make you dance, and hang on every word

I wonder if they know inside how I am breaking
and I’m operating underneath a spirit-crushing weight
I wonder if it shows, the dream my soul was making
is a fire beaten out of me by failures and mistakes

And I’m tired, tired, tired
Yeah I’m tired, tired, tired, tired, tired
But I hold fast

The fog tonight is thick, my headlights barely help me make out
The ten feet up ahead of me as I drive home in the dark
My pocket full of song requests that I turned into twenties
I’ll pay some bills tomorrow and keep waiting for a spark

And I’m tired, tired, tired
Yeah I’m tired, tired, tired, tired, tired
But I hold fast

I breathe in freezing air, the moon is full and it’s the solstice
I speak out loud to no one, “I am lost and I am scared”
But I’ll try again tomorrow, I’ll try though I don’t want to
I’ll try to hold out hope till I can get myself repaired

And I’m tired, tired, tired
Yeah I’m tired, tired, tired, tired, tired
But I hold fast
