Cigarettes, cigarettes and cheap champagne
Watching movies in the dark but really listening to the rain
Jealousy, two years of tainted history
Swallowed whole can dig a hole deeper then any cemetery

Can't wear you out cause your solid gold

Cigarettes, old regrets they can't compete
With where we are now counting stars and all the cars out on the street
Don't understand, can't understand just what you see
A pioneer, a vagabond or just a case of charity

Can't wear you out cause your solid gold

If I could just shut up, we could get down
Pretend we're the only ones alive in this town
If I could only laugh, if I could only breathe
If I could only change one thing

Cigarettes, cigarettes and cheap champagne
Watching movies in the dark but really listening to the rain
Don't understand, can't understand why you believe
That piles of bills won't break your will until the day you set me free

Can't wear you out cause your solid gold

If I could just shut up, we could get down
Pretend we're the only ones alive in this town
If I could only laugh, if I could only breathe
If I could only change one thing
I wouldn't have held you from holding me

You belong to me (x4)
You're safe right here, you're safe right here
You belong to me
You're safe right here, you're safre right here
Save your breath, we're the only guarantee

If I could just shut up, we could get down
Pretend we're the only ones alive in this town
If I could make you laugh, if i could make you scream
I shouldn't have held you from holding me

If I could just shut up, we could get down
Pretend we're the only ones alive in this town
If I could only laugh, if I could only breathe
If I could only change one thing (x2)

I wouldn't have held you from holding me
If I could only change one thing

    General CommentThis song is really great. Why havn't they been picked up by a major label? All of their songs have been gold

    Anyway, awesome song, I was kinda worried when I read they were trying to go in a different direction but I like it.
