Lyrics: 

Today broke into my house while I was sleeping
She picked the lock on my front door
Moved her baggage in
Without permission
Set it down in the kitchen

Today ran into my room while I was sleeping
She kicked her heels against my bed
"Hey, I'm moving in"
I moan, "Not again"
Stagger out to the kitchen

I thought you finally left last night
But you're like a roach
Or a Miley Cyrus song
You're never gone too long

You're never gone too long
You're never gone too long
Every morning when I'm waking
I hope that I'm mistaken
But I'm wrong
You're never gone too long
You're never gone too long
Today you're always here
With a Billy Idol sneer
Drinking all my beer
You're never gone
You're never gone too long

Today looks over my shoulder while I'm eating
"Hey, hurry up you're late for work"
Checks out Match dot com
"She looks like your mom"
Always bringing the drama

I thought you finally left last night
But you're like a roach
Or a Katy Perry song
You're never gone too long

CH

It seems that you delight
In leaving every night
We both know it's not right
It's not right
It's not right but

CH

Wow. Nice extended metaphor -- Today as that relationship you want to break but never can. And I'm honored that my lyric sparked you into writing a lyric. Cheers!

Fantastic metaphor! Very clever perspective. Nice simplicity and philosophy delivered in the bridge.
