Written and Performed by Matt Baxter [United (as Baxter United)


I’m waiting for the day,
waiting so patiently
for things to go back to the way
they used to be for me
when I was alone at night
and quiet didn’t bother me at all.

Since she’s not around,
I’ve had a lot of time to think
and its only brought me down
But now I’ve come to realize
there’s always something I should fear more
than trying to get to ‘me alone’.

And I’ll start
by saying we fell apart
and it happens all the time.

I don’t mean to undermine
or try to make light of things
cause when she left I died
but I was talking to a friend
who said she can’t remember when
her and I were even a thing at all

and it burns
when you finally learn
that it happens all the time

and now
it’s easy to see how
it happens all the time.

Now it’s quiet once again
in my lonely room at night
and it doesn’t bother me at all

Cause I’ve learned
everyone gets burned
and it happens all the time

and now
It’s easy to see how
it happens all the time.
