When I’m Tired

When I’m tired
My mind will wander far
Waiting in a room
I feel nothing
The burning of it all
Baseline goes too slow
And every boring note
There’ll be nothing

I know in my heart
That we’re falling apart
No love
I know in my heart
That we’re falling apart
There is no love

I’m not living for the past
Not living for today
I’m living in a world
With no future
I feel no remorse
There is no regret
I’ll just let it fade
Into nothing

I know in my heart
That we’re falling apart
No love
I know in my heart
That we’re falling apart
There is no love

I see it in your eyes
I can read your mind
You know as well as I
That it’s over
We’re living a lie
We’re paying the price
We have crashed
And we’re burning

I know in my heart
That I’m falling apart
Deep inside my soul
I feel nothing
Not living for the past
Not living for today
Living in a world with no future

Song Notes

“When I’m Tired” is another of the Nu-Clear Sounds era bittersweet ‘burn-out’ songs, although with a slightly faster pace than some of its contemporaries. The song had the working title “Space Rock” when it was demoed.
