Da da da-da da da-da da da-da
Da da da-da da da da da da
Living in a fever dream
Of mundane tasks between scones and cream
Excel spreadsheets and masks of make-believe
My boss really had it out for me
Da da da-da da da-da da da-da
Da da da-da da da da da da
And you wake up feeling shit with a case of Monday-itis
Could be conjunctivitis or Type A Hepatitis
But to wind back the clocks to a better time
Would be useless when you can just buy it online
And that’s fine
For now to feel like the end of time
Coz like you
I’m a burnt out kid who likes rhythm and blues
And it’s all because of feeling or not at all
It makes me crazy when I feel so small
And these long black days and earl grey nights
Have me barely getting by
Da da da-da da da-da da da-da
Da da da-da da da da da da
Recurring nights of online shopping
Those summer boys weren’t really into me
And I always end up traumatized
By the ones who peaked in high school or are now addicted to ice
Who go on writing shitty songs about
Cigarettes and little red corvettes
But when I was sixteen I was swept away
Coz aren’t we all just a little bit gay?
And it’s fine
Coz now just feels like the end of time
And like you
I’m a stuck up kid with nothing to lose
And it’s all because of loving or not at all
It makes me crazy when I start to fall
For those long black days and earl grey nights
And the essence of the days gone by
There’s songs to be sung and a hole to be filled
But it don’t spark the fire, it’s just run of the mill
You keep saying it ain’t as bad as it appears
But you wind up always screaming, “what am I doing here?!”
Well if you think about it and play your cards right
There’s something that could be ignited inside
But for now you’re just an office clerk
Who ain’t afraid to put in the hard work
Coz that’s fine
To take forever to fall in line
And I do
Wanna hold out my hand and be somebody new
And it’s all because of feeling or not at all
It amazes me I began so small
I saw those long black days and earl grey nights
Coz I have plans and I’ll be just fine
These long black days and earl grey nights
Are tellin' me I’ll be quite alright
Da da da-da da da-da da da-da
Da da da-da da da da da da
Da da da-da da da-da da da-da
Da da da-da da da da da da
