Spent on Rainy Days

This song is by Bright Eyes and appears on the split album Home Volume IV (2002) by Bright Eyes and Britt Daniel and on the vinyl release of Noise Floor (Rarities: 1998–2005) (2006).

I wish I saved up for rainy days
Because they're the hardest to be dry.
I got no self-control
I'm always begging into telephones .
And then I...
I bought a little from a brother's friend, yeah,
Just to get me by.
I don't trust his cut
The effects never as high as the mark-up.
I think I'll print it in the personals
That I'm looking for a match
Someone to light me up
Someone to burn the proof of the things that I've done.

Each day there's hours I skip like a stone
I just crawl in a bag.
I wanna live my life like somebody's shadow

I know I'm lazy with the little things
I mean, I never held a door.
But I still loved you more
Than anyone since, or before.
You're always saying that I owe you one, well,
Let's consolidate this debt -
Get on a payment plan
I'll pay you compliments, you keep from treating me bad.
But now it's easy, getting easier,
To leave you and this town behind.
I'll do some traveling
Once I'm gone tell all our friends you got even.

I'm held like an object and then set aside,
I'm back on the shelf,
I'm locked in the drawer,
I'm mint in the box but you'd still,
You'd sell me for cost, wouldn't you?

I'd be anything
The cord of a parachute
I'll be anything
The blanket on top of you
I'll be anything
The window you're looking through
And I'll be anything
The cord of a parachute

I'll be anything
The cord of a parachute
The cord of a parachute
