The District Sleeps Alone Tonight

Birdy

Smeared black ink: your palms are sweaty and
I'm barely listening to last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering what's
Buried underneath where i am

I'll wear my badge: a vinyl sticker with big block
Letters adherent to my chest
That tells your new friends i am a visitor here: i
Am not permanent
And the only thing keeping me dry is where i am

You seem so out of context in this gaudy
Apartment complex
A stranger with a door key explaining that i am
Just visiting
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth
Leaving

D.c. sleeps alone tonight

You seem so out of context in this gaudy
Apartment complex
A stranger with a door key explaining that i am
Just visiting
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth
Leaving
The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
And send the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving
