state street residential lyrics – death cab for cutie

holding fast until the rent checks wear thin
because it hasn’t sunk in so far
well, it’s a drab routine, the dust starts building
until it’s hard to come clean

then the months stack up to an addictive crutch
as if the drink weren’t enough
a stagger cannot compete
there’s no charm in being residential state street

and if i was sober
would i kill caution and stay over?
and if i was sober
would i rip hearts apart like paper?

i wish you could know better than you show
with parted lips pointed down
that the whiskey soothes
more than you could ever do

and if i was sober
would i kill caution and stay over?
and if i was sober
would i rip hearts apart like paper?

and what a difference it’d make
and what a difference it’d make

and if i was sober
would i kill caution and stay over?
and if i was sober
would i rip hearts apart like paper?

and what a difference it’d make
and what a difference it’d make
