You're walking the thin line
Between here and out of control
But you kept me in mind
You got the paper cuts to prove it
And your sea sick smile
Screams sweet nausea
Seventy-six was a good year for me
It's been uphill since

Don't cry or stop to wonder why
We crashed out like thunder
On the floor or down from the ceiling
It was nice waking up next to you

And you crossed the line
Between here and out of this world
You blow my mind
Like a Colt Forty-Five everytime

Dont' cry or stop to wonder why
We crashed out like thunder
On the floor or down from the ceiling
It was nice waking up next to you

Dont' cry or stop to wonder why
We crashed out like thunder
On the floor or down from the ceiling
It was nice waking up next to you

And our sea sick smiles
Are screaming home sweet home

    General Commentan ex boyfriend of mine told me to download this song a few months after we broke up. And I didn't have the guts to... So I finally did just a few days ago, and I listened to it, and realized how much I'm missing him, we don't even talk anymore. This is a heartbreaking song.

    General Commenti'm sensing a little double entendre here. isn't a colt forty-five also a shot of heroin? man, skiba and his drug references...
