it's a quarter to five and i'm sorrier than i've ever been
you attend to you're woes, i attend to the rest of my sin
these lies that i've told, these stories i've woven have shaken you to the bone
and now this shaky song i sing, i sing alone

it's a quarter to eight and i've got your heart on a plate
yes i ate it with rice, i can't say it was nice
it tasted like all of my hate
all my hate and my shame they boil me inside
and they rattle me to the bone
i won't sing you any love songs anymore

what kills me today is the things that you say
while you're driving away
what eats me inside is the love that we'd find
if you just let me stay

it's a quarter to five and i'm sorry for all that i've done
it's a quarter to five and i'm sorry that you're gone

when did we agree that you and me
were just probably not meant to be
you're a snowflake and i'm just a blade of grass

so what do i do
now that i don't have you
how do i get along
only way i know how

sing this shaky song
