I THOUGHT IT WAS A NEW DAY
I TURNED MY SIINS AGAINST THEMSELVES
WE WERE SLEEPIN' IN THE SHEETS BABE
I WOKE UP IN THE AIR ABOVE MY COUCH….
GUESS I LOST MY REDHEADED BLUES
I SWAPPED 'EM FOR A THOUSAND PAIR OF SHOES
& THE REFLECTION IN A BATTING EYE
THAT SCREAMS FOR ALL THE LUCK I'LL NEVER LOSE
(A LIE?)
I'M TRYIN' ON A BEERY DRUNK
YOUR LEAVIN' ME THE FIRE IN YOUR EYES
TO BE A SHIP THAT'S ALREADY SUNK
AND NEVER REALLY STOOD THE TEST OF TIME
MY LINE'S BEEN FLANKED, IT SEEMS I'VE FLUNKED
I'VE TANGLED WITH THE CAPTAIN
WALKED THE PLANK AND I SUNK (SO IT'S BYE)
* * * * *
I'M FROM A RIVER HOME, I'M FROM A TOWER
THAT'S MADE OF BONES….
I FROM THE SKYLINE OF A GREAT BIG TOWN
LIFE IN TIME WILL COUNT YOUR FRIENDS
I'VE SEEN 'EM FAIL TO SLOW, SAD ENDS
SO I'M THINKIN' ALL THE WORDS YOU'VE THUNK
& I'M TYIN' ON A BEERY DRUNK….
