Ellen Page: Ladies and gentlemen -- Wilco.

Wilco: [ singing ]
"I try to stay busy
I do the dishes, I mow the lawn
I try to keep myself occupied
Even though I know youíre not coming home

I try to keep the house nice and neat
I make my bed I change the sheets
I even learned how to use the washing machine
But keeping things clean doesnít change anything

What am I gonna do when I run out of shirts to fold?
What am I gonna do when I run out of lawn to mow?
What am I gonna do if you never come home?
Tell me, what am I gonna do?

I hate it
I hate it here
When youíre gone

I caught myself thinking
I caught myself thinking once again
Have to try to keep my mind out of this
Try not to pretend

Iíll check the phone
Iíll check the mail
Iíll check the phone again and I call your mom
She says youíre not there and I should take care

I hate it here
When youíre gone
I hate it
I hate it here
When youíre gone

I try to stay busy
I take out the trash, I sweep the floor
Try to keep myself occupied
Cause I know you donít live here anymore."
