I was lost
Until you found me, chopstick in cigarette grip
I'm so blessed
To know you're the only other honest person I've left
Gone on vigil
Beneath the light pollution and weeping willow
So burn your art
You told them it no longer speaks their part

If you're looking for companionship
I can give you that
But if you're looking for anything else
I don't know what that means
Because the night does something to us
The night does something to us

To each his own
Never meant you have to go it alone
But why even care
It would all mean nothing if you weren't there

I need someone to check me
When I think I know what to do
And if you're looking for something else
I think I know what you mean
Because the night does something to me
The night does something to me

In the back of your truck
All we say is true
Every move we make means something
And music sounds better with you

This song will be blared in the Lakota West parking lot

You don't have to say it
It's a cycle of ruin and renew
I know I'm tactlessly terse
But music sounds better with you

In lawn chairs for five hours
Drunk on thoughts we won't ensue
I won't ever deserve how much
Music sounds better with you
