Lyrics:
Smeared black ink:
Your palms are sweaty,
I'm barely listening,
To last demands.
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering--
What's buried underneath.

(Where I am) (2x)

I wear my badge--
a vinyl sticker with big block letters,
adhearnt to my chest.
Tells your new friends:
"I am a vistor here,
I am not permanent."
The only thing, keeping me dry is--

(Where I Am) (3)

You seem so out of context,
In this gaudy apartment complex.
A stranger with no door key,
Explaining that I'm just visiting.
And I am finally seeing,
Why I Was The One Worth Leaving.

D.C. sleeps alone tonight.

You seem so out of context,
In this gaudy apartment complex.
A stranger with your door key,
Explaining that I'm just visiting.
And I am finally seeing,
Why I was the one worth leaving (2x)

The district sleeps alone tonight,
After the bars turn out their lights.
Send the autos swerving,
Into the loneliest evening.
I am finally seeing,
That I was the one worth leaving. (4x)
