Lyrics

Annie’s up the stairs in my bed,

I think I’ll wake her.

She don’t want no one, she wanna get drunk.

I think I’ll take her up.

 

And it’s all just a tic in my mind.

Just like yesterday.

And on and on. On and on and on and on and on.

 

Cause I’m a cable.

I’m alright if I can, hold.

I’m a cable.

I’m alright if I can, just hold on.

Just hold on.

 

Annie bums a cigarette

Cause possibility hasn’t paid off yet.

She gets mad. I’m losing it.

Tell the moon it’s over, I’m just so sick of this shit.

 

And it’s all just a tic in my mind.

Just like yesterday.

And on and on. On and on and on and on and on.

 

Cause I’m a cable.

I’m alright if I can, hold.

I’m a cable.

I’m alright if I can, hold on.

 

We come back to find that we can’t walk this line.

Hold on.

It’s a tic inside my mind, that says it’s all just a matter of time.

If we can just hold on.

Just hold on.

I tell myself just hold on.

Just hold on.

 

Cause I’m a cable.

I’m alright if I can, hold.

I’m a cable.

I’m alright if I can, just hold on.

Just hold on.

I tell myself just hold on.

I’m telling you just hold on.
