Yeah I sure do miss the early days
When I was so drunk
Tied up in so many ways
Looking for the sanctity of love 'cause
I might make you handsome
Yeah, I might give you me
Handsome, it's getting awfully tough
Oh Yeah, to have my peace

If it weren't for this fear, I just might really be someone

But I can make it in peacetime, find some violence hidden you from trained to me
Oh we're startin' up the rain again
Startin' up the rain again
Startin' to look the same again
I said isn't it a shame

It goes by
By a fine wide mile
You'll be there, for me sweetie pie
You'll be there for the dream car
You'll go running away
I might make you handsome
I might give you grief
Try the long way back
Cause it's longer with that black cab
You can stay travellin' with that black cab
But did you heard, I'm the loser

Slap Maybelline Stay hidden yeah remain unseen
Bitch Slap Maybelline stay hidden yeah remain unseen
Bitch slap Maybelline stay hidden yeah
Bitch slap Maybelline stay hidden yeah remain

But why why why why why
But why why

Girl I sure would miss you
Why can't you stay for the death of you 'cause daddy might be coming home soon, might get lost
Yeah you might get lost
Yeah I sure would miss you

Babe don't break, time breaks down
Babe don't break, time knocked down
Babe, yeah, at this rate, time should slow down

    General CommentAs far as i know, it's strictly a live song so far. It shouldn't be all that hard to find an mp3 online somewhere, for those that are curious.

    Also, i always thought he said "stay travelling with that black cat" not "cab." But i'm pretty sure you were spot on, as cab makes more sense in context. (I kinda like the cat line better anyway though, so i'm just going to keep on hearing that instead)

    General CommentYou can find this on the Unknown Pleasures bootleg/EP. Very different track, I didn't like it much at first. But yes, its just a version of Mascara.
