I could fall asleep for you, my girl
But it's not enough
For the scenes of your last visit
Lie buried in the dust
If I don't fall in love with you, my girl
Please understand
I'll go find another county
And leave it in the end
I've seen forty-seven pictures
All with you upon the face
From the noise I'm making running
Is a secondary pace
From the scenes of your last visit
I still feel it where we touch
Where you cost me too much

Oh, the time I spent with you, my girl
Was all in vain
Waiting out the rapids
You can't escape the pain
And if I fall in love with you, my girl
It'll never end
And the sky will likely open
Raining holocaust and zen
At the west side of the forest
On a highway in the sun
Stands a pointless individual
Who knows his time has come
Though I know it's nothing funny
I'm still howling like a lush
'Cause you cost me too much

It's the same in here
Nothing's changed yet, my dear
Oh, if I had known to know you well
Lock us up in a sinner's hell for days

If I don't fall in love with you, my girl
Please understand
I'll go find another city
And leave it in the end
And if I run away with you, my girl
Please try to see
I'll do all I can to please you
But I don't expect you'll be
On the highest roof around me
Where I'm feeling pretty dumb
I scan on the horizon
For other dumbshits as they come
I'm growing older faster
Still howling like a lush
'Cause you cost me
You cost me
You cost me too much

    General CommentRight now, I'm looking at this and wondering what is going on!

    A new GB song?

    Or is this some B-side that just got discovered?

    General CommentNot new... as I understand it, this song was an acoustic demo recorded in the pre-"New Miserable Experience" days. I don't know what, if any, releases it's been included on; I just found an mp3 of it a few years back.

    It's a great song, though. Really simple four-chord deal with a great melody, and, as you can see, great lyrics.
