  1. You'll Never Last

From the album April

Lyrics

I’m worried that I’ve overstayed my welcome
They don’t want me around anymore
I feel the way they look at me
As though I’m just a burden they don’t need
And it’s true, but I’ll be gone soon
I’ll be gone soon, I swear I’ll be gone soon

I’m frightened that I can’t be all the things
I promised her that I would be
I see the way she worries that I can’t
Make all the money that we need
And it’s true, but I’ll be working
I’ll be working, I swear I’ll have work soon

Just one thing at a time
If you take more, you’ll never get out of this state of mind
I swear, you always go too fast
You’ll never last if you burn too hot
You’ll die with what you’ve got


Once my lover called my name
Nothing ever felt the same
She held me as a man to be
Married to the love he sees
Bury deep the fear that boils up when you’re alone
You’ve got another now to share the weight
So let her take it all away

I know that I’m not special
I know that I’m not great
I’m only passing through this place
Before I slip away
I only hope that some feels
They should remember me
And that my life meant something
To someone else but me

Just one thing at a time
If you take more, you’ll never get out of this state of mind
I swear, you always go too fast
You’ll never last if you burn too hot
You’ll die with what you’ve got
