Empty Bed

This song is by The Good Life and appears on the album Black Out (2002).

Out a little late aren't you?
What's out there I don't give you?
Don't I drink and sleep with you?
What you want you'll never get-

<Again you sleep>

And you grind your teeth.

But at least you try.
Or at least you try to
