Double Shift 03:46
Bought my baby figure skates Brand new books and a pencil case She’s so excited, she can’t wait She can’t wait In her eyes I see yours too Beautiful and ocean blue When she’s laughing I hear you I hear you I don’t mind There’s no trouble to it I’ll be fine Working a double shift I don’t mind There’s no trouble to it I’ll be fine Working a double shift Double shift I’ll pick her up around after five The dinner’s ready when we’ll arrive She can stay at Grandma’s for a while For a while I thought I heard you walking down the stairs Or in the wind blowing through my hair I know you’re with us everywhere Everywhere I don’t mind There’s no trouble to it I’ll be fine Working a double shift I don’t mind There’s no trouble to it I’ll be fine Working a double shift Double shift

You make your way out to the street There’s a show tonight that you ought to see You crouch into a stranger’s backseat Your coat feels heavy from the rain You rather stay inside your head again But tonight, you got promises to keep No one will see it when you cry No one can see, the phantom tears in your eyes It’s been a while since you’ve had a drink All the parties feel like a waste You care less and less about what others think But careful now, don’t you fade away You rather stay inside your head again But tonight, you got promises to keep No one will see it when you cry No one can see, the phantom tears in your eyes Are you really alright? Are you really alright? When you say you are fine You know it’s a lie Are you alright? When you say you are fine You know it’s a lie Are you alright? You make your way out to the street There’s a show tonight that you ought to see You crouch into a stranger’s backseat Your coat feels heavy from the rain

Sun-tanned skin, a half-moon smile A new shaved man, a newborn child L.A seems to give her what she needs A diamond ring and legal weed Your life is more like a rocking chair You go back and forth, but you go nowhere You keep on trying, so it’s not fair Your life’s more like a rocking chair Your life’s more like a rocking chair Subway rides and big bright lights Leave in the morning, come home at night In New York City you do more than try ‘til your colors fade, and you’re getting dry Your life is more like a rocking chair You go back and forth, but you go nowhere You keep on trying, so it’s not fair Your life’s more like a rocking chair Your life’s more like a rocking chair Sun-tanned skin, a half-moon smile A new shaved man, a newborn child L.A seems to give her what she needs A family, and stability Our life was more like a rocking chair We tried back and forth, but it went nowhere When I’m dreaming, she’s still right there My life’s more like a rocking chair My life’s more like a rocking chair My life’s more like a rocking chair

In the dark Sun is yet to rise I’m waking up Tired eyes I think we know It’s gonna be hard To be in love, and to be apart I won’t be much fun, to anyone else I rather sink down on the couch Alone with my phone Talking to you Dreaming of when We’ve seen it through I know we’ll grow But it’s gonna be hard To be in love, and to be apart I won’t be much fun, to anyone else I rather sink down on the couch Blowing kisses through the screen You take your hand, and place them on your cheek I just want to be near you I won’t be much fun, to anyone else I rather sink down on the couch
