No Matter What I Do

by Nate Borofsky

I had a dream, maybe you could tell me what it means
Maybe you know the secrets that I cannot see
Now that you're gone, I stayed up all night until the dawn
I lay up just thinking about the way you turn me on

It's like I never felt before
Everything's changed and now is more
But still there's the thought, it's all for naught, it won't come true
I keep it all locked inside my chest
Like feeling like shit is for the best
Like feeling the earth still turn no matter what I do

There's got to be more than manning the ship, minding the store
Leaving the office early, getting home by four
That's what I'd do every day til I met you
I guess in a way it was the best that I could do

It's like I never felt before
Everything's changed and now is more
But still there's the thought, it's all for naught, it won't come true
I keep it all locked inside my chest
Like feeling like shit is for the best
Like feeling the earth still turn no matter what I do

Stop one, two, three
Flying across the whole country
And see all the ways
All of it plays out so nicely

I had a dream, maybe you could tell me what it means
The world it was ending, sending me into the blue
The stars went away, the sky was a blackened ball of grey
Nothing to say, I sat and waited there for you

It's like I never felt before
Everything's changed and now is more
But still there's the thought, it's all for naught, it won't come true
I keep it all locked inside my chest
Like feeling like shit is for the best
Like feeling the earth still turn no matter what I do
