I really don't care what you do on your gap year

by Frank Turner


We were only supposed to go out for the night,
But it´s been a few hours now since it got light -
We´re a mess, and the worst part is we couldn´t care less.
There´s water in the ash-tray and ash in the sink,
The carpet´s mostly soaking, but there´s nothing to drink -
We´re a state, and we´re starting to regret staying awake.

And I´ll pay for my sins when I get paid,
I´ll stop talking to girls when I get laid.
I should have gone home when I could, but I stayed.
But then I never was the clever one.

We were only supposed to go out for the night,
I did my best to go home but in the end I lost the fight with myself -
To be honest I was hoping I´d go home with someone else.
And right about now I should be starting my day,
But instead I am sat here downing the dregs of yesterday,
All the while trying to prop up both ends of my smile.

And I´ll pay for my sins when I get paid,
I´ll stop talking to girls when I get laid.
I should have gone home when I could, but I stayed.
But then I never was the clever one,
But always the one to not see that I´m done and
I need to go home and get to sleep,
Always the last to see the moment has passed and
I need to admit my defeat.
And I´m lonely - there, I said it.
I´m lonely, but it´s hard to admit it
When everybody thinks that you´re fine all the time and you´re not.

So we were only supposed to go out for the night...
But who am I kidding? Try as I might I can´t stop
Until I´ve squeezed out every last drop.

And I´ll pay for my sins when I get paid
But I don´t have a penny to my name.
I´ll stop talking to girls when I get laid
But I haven´t had a shower for days.
I should´ve gone home when I could but I stayed,
And so I stay up alone,
And set off on my own
To the station where I catch the first train.
