One More

I caught up with a sinking ship
So I could take a ride on it
and write it in a letter
the things it said you've heard before
I've only tried to mean them more
now that it's almost over
I wrote it on a paper plate
and swallowed it with what I ate
so I could live forever

Days go by, but we're still the same you and I
what's one more, tomorrow will be what today was before

I got the money that you sent
but I still didn't pay the rent
my dirty little secret
I took a cab to Leicester Square
and gave it to somebody there
Cuz I just couldn't keep it


I went out for a drive alone
to try to lose my way back home
so I could find it later
I'll write it on a paper cup
so I can always fill it up
with things I should remember
