The District Sleeps Alone Tonight Lyrics

Smeared black ink
Your face is ashen
And I'm barely listening, to last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering, what's buried
underneath, where I am
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)
Where I am (A stranger with your door key explaining
that I am just visiting)
Where I am (And I am finally seeing why I was the one
worth leaving)
Why I was the one worth leaving

D.C. sleeps alone tonight
D.C. sleeps alone tonight
Where I am (You seem so out of context in this gaudy
apartment complex)
Where I am (A stranger with your door key explaining
that I am just visiting)
Where I am (And I am finally seeing why I was the one
worth leaving)
Why I was the one worth leaving

The district sleeps alone tonight
After the bars turn out their lights
And leave the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
And I am finally seeing
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
