Matt Bradley's got the broken teeth
He wears a jean jacket with a bullet in the sleeve
He's just another Southern boy who dreams of nights in NYC
And I sing along
I sing along

My tears don't matter much,
They don't matter much (x2)

Doug Deluca's voice could break a heart
I recorded every song
I used up three whole tapes, and put 'em in a box
To give away
To break a heart

My tears don't matter much,
They don't matter much (x2)

When the boys sing their songs
And the kids they sing along...
I'm just another Southern boy who dreams of nights in NYC
And I sing along
I sing along

Cory Branan's got an evil streak
And a way with words that'll bring you to your knees
Oh he can play the wildest shows and he can sing so sweet

I still sing along

My tears don't matter much,
They don't matter much (x2)

When the boys sing their songs
And the kids they sing along...
I'm just another Southern boy who dreams of nights in NYC
And I sing along
I still sing along

My tears don't matter much,
They don't matter much (x6)

    General Commentnewwave1111, i'm a fan of wilco as well. wilco was a bit similar to lucero during their early days. check out the album AM for example, the genre is considered alt-country. when people ask me what lucero sounds like i usually say early wilco meets late replacements.

    General Commenti don't really know what this song is about. but then again i don't really care! it's just an awesome song! with some songs it annoys me if i don't get what it's about but this song it doesn't bother me because it's got the best chorus to sing along to, me and my best mate were going home on the bus the other day, plugged into my iPod singing the chorus at the top of our voices :P great fun
