lyrics

she left this town six months ago last summer
she left us cold cause it was winter in her soul
she cut me off six months prior to leaving
and she drove alone cause that's exactly how she felt
her mouth was sick of smiling
and she was tired of all the lying
cause nobody wants to hear when you're not fine
we wouldn't listen when she told us she was drowning
so she set sail for seas with storms that raged
more like the ones inside

when you don't know what to do
and you don't know who you are
knowing what not to do and who you're not
is winning half the war
she's winning half the war

cause she's coming back to tell me that she's crazy
she's coming back
and it's the best news that i've heard
she's coming back into the light that makes
her darkness run and hide
she's coming back in a weak way that is strong

all her sisters friends are alcoholics
cause alcoholics never stop being alcoholics
they anniversiary sobriety alcoholics
it's no excuse to drink
it's just a part of who they are

hello, my name is all of us
and i'm a criminal

and my friend
she's got a mean case of ups and downs
we're not proud of these
we just want to be honest
cause being phony nearly killed her
and it ran her out of town

but she's coming back to tell me that she's crazy
she's coming back
and it's the best news that i've heard
she's coming back into the light that makes
her darkness run and hide
she's coming back in a weak way that is strong

come on back home
