Lyric of the Month: December 2010 – This November

by Nic Olson

Tim Barry, This November – Manchester

Fell this morning, fucked up this whole damn day
In fact the sun is high and shining, but I’m too drained to leave
I’ll wait for night to sink, close the blinds and lock both the doors
Oh god I’m terrified, I’m terrified to be found here, shaking and withdrawn
I need a break, I keep scratching but won’t cut deep enough to bleed
I’ll figure it out alone, Don’t know what’s gotten into me

But it’ll be alright, it’ll be alright,
It’s okay, goddamn sometimes silence is all I need
To be and feel complete
It’s okay, if you never hurt you never feel a thing
And I don’t say all I mean.

Fuck tomorrow and fuck all of yesterday
I’m too old to be chasing burdens by the riverside at night
A watershed waste deep with friends turning cheeks
As I’m chasing trains that never end
I cut but I don’t feel, don’t know what’s gotten…

It’s okay, goddamn sometimes silence is all I need
To be and feel complete
It’s okay, if you never hurt you never feel a thing
And I don’t say all I mean

But I’m not scared, no I ain’t angry
I just need time, just need to escape
We all try, tired and broken
But it’ll be alright
