Usually Bright - Elbow

Hotel in my home town
The saddest room I ever woke in
Try to enjoy yourself out there
The saddest words you've ever spoken
The changeling, the taxi cab
Usually bright, so hollow
The saddest journey ever made
Begins today,
and ends tomorrow

Ten miles and in it clicks
Sadly through the avionics
At 30 thousand feet
The saddest gins, the saddest tonics
The fella next to me up there
Needs an educated broker
The happiest man you'll ever meet
Sadly, I'm not even joking

Hotel in my home town
The saddest room I ever woke in
Try to enjoy yourself out there
The saddest words you've ever spoken
The changeling, the taxi cab
Usually bright, so hollow
The saddest journey ever made
Begins today,
and ends tomorrow
