lyrics

You pack the kids away to college
and wave them a grinning goodbye
down the driveway.

The house falls into a sudden quiet
that presses down hard on your eyes.

Was it worth it?
The thought sends a chill down the back of your neck.

In all your dreams, your teeth are rotting,
and saltwater fills up the room.
You wake, sweating.

Your bed is frigid and expensive,
and most nights, it feels like a tomb.

Was it worth it?
The thought sends a chill down the back of your neck.

Armed with a frantic desperation,
you move to the country to clear
your poor head out.

You’re spending money like it’s nothing;
the well will run dry in a year.

Was it worth it?
The thought sends a chill down the back of your neck.

You get a fresh start, and you set about
making the same mistakes.

You get a fresh start, and you set about
making the same mistakes again.
