lyrics

I wrote it down — From 10 to noon
I’d sit at home and I’d write a tune
At 10 am I was checking e-mail
At 12 noon I was still derailed

So many ways that I get in my own way
So many ways that I get in my own way
So many ways that I get in my own way
So many ways that I get in my own way

At 1 o’clock I waited on a call
At 2 pm I’d heard nothing at all
At 3 o’clock my friend finally phoned
Cause he was in the Mountain Time Zone

Chorus

At 4 pm I needed a late lunch
At 4:30 well I got hunch
At 5 pm my baby would come home
And I can’t write when I’m not alone
No I can’t write when I’m not alone
I just can’t write when I’m not alone
No I can’t write when I’m not alone

Chorus

Well now it’s midnight and my love’s asleep
It’s seven hours till the cell phone goes beep beep, beep beep beep beep, beep beep
Crawl in the closet with the coats and shoes
Get an idea
But I start to snooze

Chorus (2x)
