Brick - Ben Folds Five

6am day after Christmas
I throw some clothes on in the dark
The smell of cold
Car seat is freezing
The world is sleeping I am numb

Up the stairs to her apartment
She is balled up on the couch
Her mum and dad went down to Charlotte
Their not home to find us out

And we drive
Now that I have found someone
I'm feeling more alone
Then I ever have before

She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly

They call her name
At 7:30
I pace around the parking lot
And i walk down to buy her flowers
And sell some gifts that i got
Cant you see
It's not me you're dying for
She's feeling more alone
Than she ever has before


As weeks went by
It showed that she was not fine
They told me son it's time to tell the truth and
she broke down
and i broke down
cause I was tired
of lying

Driving back
To her apartment
For the moment we're alone
And she's alone
And I'm alone
And I know it
