​Cheap Affairs

This song is by Write This Down and appears on the album Lost Weekend (2012).

Dirty hotel laundry rooms
Old apartments, basic views
We are the kings, we are the kings
Never sleep and barely eat
We can hardly catch a dream
But it's better than that 9 to 5

No more cheap affairs
No more sideways stares
When I tell you where I've been last night
No more cryptic notes
Of when I'll be home
You know you're better off alone

I hate to tell you this
Over the phone
There was Portland and Columbus
That's twice in a year
Baby I'm a mess and you know
I'm out of control
I'm feeling crazy when I'm all alone
The kind of crazy that makes you start shaking
Saying things that you'd never say
Maybe I thought we had a shot
We'd get lost and burn up all of the maps
And watch the world fall away

Seven hundred "I owe you"s
Holidays and birthdays too
I've missed them all, I've missed them all
Failed attempts at rendezvous
This is just a dying cause
But we talked it out and made a truce

No more cheap affairs
No more sideways stares
When I tell you where I've been last night
No more cryptic notes
Of when I'll be home
You know you're better off alone

I hate to tell you this
Over the phone
There was Portland and Columbus
That's twice in a year
Baby I'm a mess and you know
I'm out of control
I'm feeling crazy when I'm all alone
The kind of crazy that makes you start shaking
Saying things that you'd never say
Maybe I thought we had a shot
We'd get lost and burn up all of the maps
And watch the world fall away

Judging by the look on your face
You don't get it
Like every word I said was abandoned grace
Staring at me like you're amazed
My bad habits are holding me up and away from you

Baby I'm a mess and you know
I'm out of control
I'm feeling crazy when I'm all alone
The kind of crazy that makes you start shaking
Saying things that you'd never say
Maybe I thought we had a shot
We'd get lost and burn up all of the maps
And watch the world fall away
