This is one of the first songs I wrote for my record, and after this, I knew the album wasn’t going to be folky like my EP was. As far as drinking during the day goes, I wouldn’t recommend it- except on Christmas which is when this song takes place. Unless the drinking is a metaphor, which I hope it is.


Sometimes I find myself feeling a bit older, feeling a bit bluer
Feeling a bit dry.

My mother’s cats they itch they scratch and they bleed her
She wants them to need her
No not like I.

I ripped the label till I recalled what it meant.
I flipped the switch till I thought about what you said.
I’ll probably always think about you in that way.
And wonder
What the hell was I doing drinking during the day?

Sometimes I find myself feeling a bit better
Or maybe just weathered
Or maybe just grown.

Wake up sometimes and it feels like I never left ya
I feel a bit better
And then that feeling goes.

Recall the good times till I recall what you said.
The smell of vomit I tried to hide from my breath.
I’ll probably definitely miss you everyday.
And wonder
What the hell was I doing drinking during the day?

Let’s just leave the dishes throw em all into the sink.
You put your dress on and yes baby I will do my make up quick.
Yes dear, it’s been the worst year.
And all our Christmas pasts are coming back to read our cards and play out.

We’re gone now.
We’re gone now.
We’re gone again.
