This Old Jacket

When it was cold one day you loaned me your jacket
Now you think it's best if we're not together
You say I don't have to give your jacket back
So I'll sleep with it at night and think of you

I have your jacket, sure, but I don't have you
You say you still like me, but you like every other girl too
So I'll just sleep with your jacket at night and pretend 
I'm the only one for you

This old jacket
Put it on, zip it up, fall asleep thinking of you

They say it makes it better
if you have something to remember 
those things you've lost
But an old jacket just isn't the same
as your happy strange eyes and the way they used to look at me

But it helps, it helps, I can smell the familiar scent of you
It helps, it helps, and remember the way you looked in it
It helps, it helps, and remember the way you looked at me
It helps, it helps, yeah
So I'll just sleep with your jacket at night and think of you

This old jacket
Put it on, zip it up, fall asleep thinking of you

If we could ever get back what we used to have
Then maybe what'd I'd do
Is take off this old jacket and give it back to you
But until then, you know just what I'll do

I'll just take your jacket, this old jacket
this stupid jacket, this tear-jerkin jacket
and I'll just put it on, zip it up, fall asleep thinking of you
