Six am 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 drowning slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
They call her name at seven thirty
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 
Then she ever has 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

As weeks went by
It showed that she was not fine
They told me son it's time to tell the truth 
She broke down and I broke down
'Cause I was tired of lying  Driving home 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 drowning slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
