The 21st

The 21st comes so soon every month
An anniversary of not being strong enough
You’re much too co-dependent
A shrink is recommended

Your father tells you to try to be responsible
Your mother loves you but not the way she did before
Your brother’s torn to pieces
Nobody knows the reasons

He loves the winter
But it smells too much like memories
The ornament she gave him
Still hangs from his Christmas tree
A jingle bell will glisten
That’s when she loved to kiss him

So say farewell
To all the little things she would say and do
The morning sleepy-eyed girl waves goodbye to you
You’re much too co-dependent
A shrink is recommended, yeah

But yeah, who the people you hang around with?
Who the ones you gonna call
When you feel like ending it all
But yeah, who the people you hang around with?
Who the ones you gonna call
When you feel like ending it all

But I can’t bring you down
But I can’t bring you down
But I can’t bring you down
I can’t bring you down
But I can’t bring you down
But I can’t bring you down
But I can’t bring you down
