lyrics

It's taken a while, a few years, to get where we are.
"Don't blow it," he said to himself, "like you have in the past."
Get lost in the fog in the city, set yourselves apart
from the rest of the world. Let the coil uncurl;
the tension won't last.

Oh, this is probably nothing. You're daydreamin' kid!
You'll never find love after doing what you did.

I've gotten really good at giving up hope. No means no, I know.
I know when to stop now, but I don't know when to go.
I've gotten really good at giving up hope. No means no, I know.
I know when to stop now, but I don't know when to go.

His talking sounds stupid. He's certain that she's had her fill
of the vaporous nonsense escaping his idiot lungs.
Some paranoid whispers in his head now worry him still.
He's paralyzed thinking, self-confidence sinking.
He knew this was done.

Oh, this is probably nothing. You're daydreamin' kid.
You'll never find love after doing what you did!

I've gotten really good at giving up hope. No means no, I know.
I know when to stop now, but I don't know when to go.
I've gotten really good at giving up hope. No means no, I know.
I know when to stop now, but I don't know when to go.

Maybe, just maybe I ought to say,
maybe, just maybe on a different day,
maybe, just maybe. No. It's as clear as can be.
You'll find plenty of others far better than me.

It's just sleeping gets lonely sometimes,
and you might be the best I'll ever find.

Oh, I've gotten really good at giving up hope. No means no, I know.
I know when to stop now, but I don't know when to go.
I've gotten really good at giving up hope. No means no, I know.
I know when to stop now, but I won't try anyhow.
