about

Too much John Prine, not enough sleep (at night).

lyrics

I've become a daysleeper, a cracked and rusted gatekeeper
And you've become a hedge better, a worn and faded old sweater
Baby I’m sorry I didn't mean to let it go
Baby I’m sorry, oh I still love you so

I was once a head turner, a ready spark a barn burner
You were my first and last chancer, a steady hand, a slow dancer
Baby I’m sorry I didn’t mean to let it go
Baby I’m sorry, oh I still love you so
Baby I’m sorry that this room has grown so cold
Baby I’m sorry, oh I still love you so

Time’s an indelicate machine, can make you hard can make you mean
Can bury your love in the ground, but it can bring it back around
Baby I’m sorry I didn’t mean to let it go
Baby I’m sorry, oh I still love you so
Baby I’m sorry I spun my tracks down in the road
Baby I’m sorry, oh I still love you so

I've become a daysleeper, a cracked and rusted gatekeeper
But time has helped me see better, that you’re my favourite old sweater.
