"Yeah Sapphire" as written by and C Finn J Kubler....
Yeah Sapphire

Yeah, Sapphire
I'm sick and I'm tired and I'm fried
And you gotta believe me

Yeah, Sapphire
If I cross myself when I come,
Would you maybe receive me?

Yeah, Sapphire
You were feisty at first,
But I broke you and I showed you the temporal

Sacramento,
It swung at us first
But it ended up going down gentle

Sapphire, if Cheyenne's too small
We'll haul it all back to St. Paul
I was just about to call you
When you called

Yeah, Sapphire
I know the last time we touched
I came on a bit rough, please forgive me

Yeah, Sapphire
After you left, it was a big sketchy mess
They almost killed me

Sapphire, if Cheyenne's too small
We'll haul it all back to St. Paul
I was just about to call you
When you called

Sapphire, if St. Paul don't call
We've always got Aberdeen
'Cause dreams they seem to cost money
But money costs some dreams

It went just as you predicted
I swear there must be something in your dreams
It all went down exactly like your visions
And I know you said don't call until I'm clean

I'm not drunk, I'm cut
I'm gushing blood
And I need someone to come and pick me up

I was a skeptic at first, but these miracles work
I was a skeptic at first, but these miracles work
I was a skeptic at first, but these miracles work
I was a skeptic at first, but these miracles work

    General Comment"You were feisty at first but I broke you and showed you the tempo". Also, spelled "skeptic". Good early lyrics though.

    Probably the catchiest THS of, you know, ever. Such good driving song.

    General CommentActually, in 'English' it's 'sceptic', but I guess since the band are American, I'll change it :)

    And yes, you're probably right about the first point, though there sounded like there was a bit more on the end of 'tempo'

    General Comment"St. Paul" has a double meaning here. The first two times it's referenced, Finn is talking about the city, but the third time ("If St. Paul don't call"), St. Paul is the drug dealer from Sweet Payne. Gotta love such subtle self-reference.

    General Comment"I'm not drunk, I'm cut, I'm gushing blood, and I need someone to come and pick me up" is such a classic Hold Steady moment.
