Six am Day after Christmas

I throw some clothes on in the dark

The smell of cold, car seat is freezing

the world is sleeping I am, numb.

Up the stairs, to her apartment
she is balled up on the couch
Her mom and dad, went down to Charlotte
they're not home to find us out-

(Same Chords and rythm as opening verse)

They call her name
at seven thirty
I pace around the Paking lot
Then I walk down
to buy her flowers
and sell some gifts that I got

Can't you see,
It's not me,
you're dying for
Now she's feeling more alone
Then she ever has before

"Brick" was one of Ben Folds Five's biggest hits, gaining much mainstream radio play in the USA, the UK, and Australia in 1998.
