Do you think I understand you just cause I nod my head
Did you find a word of comfort in something that I said
I was thinking of a chapter from a book that I just read
Or dreaming of some actress that I’d like to take to bed

If I can’t think of anything nice I’ll say nothing at all
If I'm lost for words for a minute or two
I’ll stare at the floor
It might look like honest sympathy but I'm counting up the score
Or wondering if my salary will last a week or more

The patience of a saint
The warmth of hot coals
All the charity that I have with me
Can’t fill up this black hole
The light of the sun
Any love that’s in my soul
Any empathy that I try to feel can’t fill up
This black hole

You probably think I’m on your side as long as I don’t reprimand you
So can I order another drink
Just so that I can stand you
Double please my good friend and hold the soda too
And stick around cause when she’s this down
I’ll be back in a minute or two

And as the warmth spreads to my toes
It doesn’t seem so bad
To pat your shoulder and lick your wounds and agree that it’s oh so sad
But when it clears and the chemical cheer
Has passed into the bowl
I’ll be looking at my watch debating if it’s time to go
