Lonely and the only
And you're clawing through the smoke
Where the poet sits away
They don't even write poems
And if I knew what was wrong, I'd let you know
Buy me a drink, it's no good to drink alone

Lonely at the only
And four nights out of three
It's not that I've been crying,
It's just that my eyes leak
If I knew what was wrong, I'd let you know
Buy me a drink, it's no good to drink alone

There will be a getaway plan
From boys with the parlor hands
My big smile meets your right cheer
Who here's having the harder year?

Do you remember when the water came?
Do you remember the when flood
Filled the basements up with water
And the windows up with mud?
Do you remember when the water came?
Do you remember when the flood
Filled the cellars up with water
And the windows up with mud?

It's slow at the only
Four nights out of three
And it's not that I'm crying, it's that my eyes leak
And it's lonely at the only
Clawing through the smoke
And oh, it's so hard to know
And if I knew what was wrong, I'd let you know
So buy me a drink, it's no good to drink
Buy me a drink, it's no good to drink alone.

    lonely at the only clawing through the smoke the poets so hip they don't even write poems if i knew what was wrong i'd let you know buy me a drink; its no good to drink alone so filled with tired i just need some sleep its not that i've been crying its just that my eyes leak if i knew what was wrong i'd let you know buy me a drink; its no good to drink alone refrain fresh out of get away plans all the boys with their sticky hands my beer smile meets your rye cheer who here has had the harder year? no one I guess were you here when the water came? do you remember when the flood filled the basements up with water covered windows up in mud and its lonely at the only 4 nights out of three its not that i've been crying just that my eyes leak
