And it just became clear that this song could be a scene from a Richard Yates novel

All night I lay on my pillow and pray
For my boss to stop me in the hallway
Lay my head on his shoulder and say
Son, I’ve been hearing good things

I wake up without warning and go flying around the house
In my sauvignon fierce, freaking out
Take a forty-five minute shower and kiss the mirror
And say, look at me
Baby, we’ll be fine
All we gotta do is be brave and be kind

I put on an argyle sweater and put on a smile
I don’t know how to do this
I’m so sorry for everything
[repeat]

Baby, come over, I need entertaining
I had a stilted, pretending day

Lay me down and say something pretty
Lay me back down where I wanted to stay
Just say something perfect, something I can steal
Say, look at me
Baby, we’ll be fine
All we’ve gotta do is be brave and be kind

I pull off your jeans, and you spill jack and coke in my collar
I melt like a witch and scream
I’m so sorry for everything
[repeat]
