lyrics

BLANKET
Words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

Tear off a number and wait in a chair
In a room of strangers my worries are not theirs
Can't shake off this feeling that life isn't fair
Careening down a broken rail

With my entire life wrapped here in a blanket
Soft and small, close and warm
My entire life is wrapped here in a blanket
That is all, that is all

Thursday's a nightmare, I woke up in a fright
In a cold room no refuge from fluorescent lights
I'm running I'm crawling there's no place to hide
From the monster's hungry eyes

My entire life is wrapped here in a blanket
Soft and small, close and warm
My entire life is wrapped here in a blanket
That is all, that is all

Tuesday alone I don't wait for a call
I'm done mumbling, done walking 'round wondering where you are
Worrying for what I cannot change won't get me very far
No monster gonna break my heart

My entire life is wrapped here in a blanket
Soft and small, close and warm
My entire life is wrapped here in a blanket
That is all, that is all

Packed all my bags but I won't catch a flight
Won't swing on a hammock at the house I cannot buy
I'm a frequent believer in wrong black and white
There's lucky ones and hard hard times

My entire life is wrapped here in a blanket
Soft and small, close and warm
My entire life is wrapped here in a blanket
That is all, that is all
