Alive at the Same Time by Matthew Milia

Tuesday morning
Karen's in my bed
I can tell I might be in over my head

I haven't got a thing to do today
I'm swimming in the coffee
Trying to find a way

To tell you that I need you
And that it frightens me
But I'm agreed to
Stay around to see

And tell you that I love you
Whatever that might be
To be alive contemporaneously

I'm glad that you and I've
Been alive at the same time
It''s just the way I’m trying to say
That I need you

I hope that you and I
Stay alive at the same time
It’s just the way I’m trying to say
That I love you

I walk myself down Michigan Avenue
I need a drink to think about what I should do
Before you hit downtown it's a no-man’s-land
And that's exactly where I tend to wanna stand

Constantly older than I ever thought I'd be
It seems the world stays young
And moves away from me

You're a little younger
It doesn't bother me
Tell your father what we said about Radio City

I'm glad that you and I've
Been alive at the same time
It''s just the way I’m trying to say
That I need you

I hope that you and I
Stay alive at the same time
It’s just the way I’m trying to say
That I love you

Wednesday morning, Karen's in my bed
I can tell I might be in over my head
Seems there's nothing I can't do today
I'm drowning in the coffee
Everything's okay
