    Lyrics

    6 a.m.
    Day after Christmas
    I throw some clothes on in the dark
    The smell of cold
    Car seat is freezing
    The world is sleeping
    I am numb

    Up the stairs to her apartment
    She is balled up on the couch
    Her mom and dad went down to Charlotte
    They're not home to find us out

    And we drive
    Now that I have found someone
    I'm feeling more alone than I ever have before

    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly off the coast
    And I'm headed nowhere
    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly

    They call her name at 7:30
    I pace around the parking lot
    And I walk down to buy her flowers and sell some gifts that I got

    Can't you see
    It's not me you're dying for
    Now she's feeling more alone than she ever has before

    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly off the coast
    And I'm headed nowhere
    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly

    As weeks went by it showed that she was not fine
    They told me, "Son it's time to tell the truth"
    And she broke down and I broke down 'cause I was tired of lying

    Driving back to her apartment
    For the moment we're alone
    Yeah
    She's alone and I'm alone
    Now I know it

    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly off the coast
    And I'm headed nowhere
    She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly
