Smiling sweetly said she made you smoke your cigs all outside
This could be your last time, this would be your last time now
What’s a few if the hotel don’t mind

Remember how her eyes would shine
They made you come home on time
What’s the plan for tonight calling just to say hi love
How about just us tonight

Oh and oh and oh her eyes always fixing to tell me
Our love is gorgeous
While she would hum so softly

Hallelujah

And we would take those walks at night
And we would dance there in the kitchen till we couldn’t catch our breath

Blood collects and clots
The color creeps from carpet to tile
When you signed you seemed fine, when you signed you seemed fine
A stiff drink will change a mind

Memories aren’t for keeping, mostly just for leaving behind
They’ll remember alright, we remember alright now
A thousand memories and too much wine

Oh and oh and oh the song she would sing it so sweetly
The drunken stupor
It had you slurring it out loud

Hallelujah

And we would take those walks at night
And we would dance there in the kitchen till we couldn’t catch our breath

Cold limbs, casino carpet, and linoleum tiles
You sleep
Waking up to the choir singing

Hallelujah

Remember how her eyes would shine, they made you come home on time

    General CommentI'm not sure what this song means.
    Just guessing, it's just about a guy remembering the goodtimes with his girlfriend.
    Maybe she passed away, or they broke up, because he's talking in past tense...
    All I know is this song rules.

    General Commenti agree
    especially because of this


    Memories aren’t for keeping, mostly just for leaving behind

    General CommentDefinetly has to do with death:
    Cold limbs, casino carpet, and linoleum tiles
    You sleep
    Waking up to the choir singing
    Hallelujah

    General CommentThese lyrics are a bit off, these come from the book thing in the CD:

    Smiling sweetly, said she made
    you smoke your cigs all outside
    This'll be your last time
    This'll be your last time now
    What's a few if the hotel don't mind
    Remember how her eyes would shine
    Made you come home on time

    What's the plan for tonight
    calling just to say hi, love
    How about just us tonight
    Oh and oh and oh her eyes
    always fixing to tell me
    Our love is gorgeous
    While she would sing so softly
    And we would take those walks at night
    And we would dance there in the kitchen till we couldn't catch our breath

    Blood collects and clots
    The color creeps from carpet to tile
    When you signed you seemed fine
    when you signed you seemed fine
    A stiff drink will change your mind

    Memories aren't for keeping
    mostly just for leaving behind
    We'll remember alright
    we remember alright now
    A thousand memories and too much wine
    Oh and oh and oh the song
    she would sing it so sweetly
    That drunken stupor
    It had you slurring outloud
    And we would take those walks at night
    And we would dance there in the
    kitchen till we couldn't catch our breath

    Cold limbs, casino carpet,
    and linoleum tiles
    You sleep, waking up to the choir singing
    HALLELUJAH

    Remember how her eyes would shine,
    they made you come home on time

    General Comment"SoozequeD" seems to know the story behind this one. It all makes sense to me. I guess I just assume too many songs are about romantic relationships.
