    Original song, "The Week."


    Feeling more like myself
    than I have all year,
    alone with a man I've known
    just a handful of hours.

    He says his boyfriend won't mind
    just as long as he's still out of town.
    He says they have an understanding.
    He seems real good at having understandings.

    He's got an easy smile,
    that looks like it took some time to earn
    like it was the only thing left standing.

    He acts like I'm in on a joke
    that nobody ever says out loud;
    Sometimes I think I know the ending,
    and it's okay, as long as there's an ending.

    He sees people as functions
    and functions as old friends
    and it's alright to fall in love, he says,
    'cause it hasn't stopped him yet, no, no,
    No it hasn't stopped him.

    And maybe it's true that I only
    save some room
    for those that aren't planning on staying.

    Though he may not have changed
    my life this time,
    I think it's enough to keep me going.
    I guess it's time, we should be going.

    And our only choice is
    to be broke or broken 'cause
    hope is expensive at this time of year.
    But that hasn't stopped me yet, no, no,
    No it hasn't stopped me.
