​I Walk Outside (Outtake)

This song is by Cannonball Statman and appears on the album 22 (2015).

I walk outside; you were never really there,
And I think to myself, that there are buildings everywhere.
I walk outside; you were half-conscious, so it's fine.
And I talk to a friend on the phone, and it's all right.
I walk outside; I miss late nights in the city.
In your apartment, you held many things; but this was always there.
I walk outside; all your secrets came back with me,
And I think it's cool. It's cool that you're letting it all go.

And it's cool, it's cool; just like your dreams, and my dreams,
And everything is fixed, and the world is made up of
Guns and newspapers, and toy painted guns are illegal,
And I walk outside to find nothing,
But the corner and the back.

I walk outside; I feel nauseous every day,
And I think to myself, that it shouldn't be this way.
I walk outside; I've never dealt with this before.
Or maybe I have, and I thought I wanted more.
I walk outside; I miss the dark and the light,
Because for now, it's all just figures facing towards the street.
I walk outside; I want everything I can't have,
And I talk about the way it all has to end.

But never knowing this brutal ending, and everything is dead to me;
We're all soldiers fighting cars on the little highway roads,
And I walk outside to find nothing,
But the corner and the back.

And the signs all point to an intersection of two roads.
