​State Street Residential

This song is by Death Cab for Cutie and appears on the album You Can Play These Songs With Chords (1997).

Holding fast until the rent checks wear thin
Because it hasn't sunk in... so far

Well it's a drab routine, the dust storms building
And then it's hard to come clean

Then the months stack up to an addictive crutch
As if the drink weren't enough
A stagger cannot compete
There's no charm in being residential state street

And if I was sober
Could I kill caution and stay over
And if I was sober
Would I rip hearts apart like paper?

I wish you could know better than you show
With parted lips pointed down
That the whiskey seems more than you could ever do.

And if I was sober
Could I kill caution and stay over
And if I was sober
Would I rip hearts apart like paper?

What a difference it made
What a difference it made

And if I was sober
Could I kill caution and stay over
And if I was sober
Would I rip hearts apart like paper?

What a difference it made
What a difference it made
