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 mom and dad went down to Charlotte
They're not home to find us out

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

She's a brick and I'm drowing slowly
Off the coast and I'm heading nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drowing slowly

They call her name at 7.30
I pace around the parking lot
Then I walk down, to buy her flowers
And sell some gifts that I got
Can't you see
It's not me you're dying for

Now she's feeling more alone
Than she ever has before

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

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
She's alone
I'm alone
Now I know it

She's a brick and I'm drowing slowly
Off the coast and I'm heading nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drowing slowly
