Might I have the pleasure tonight
I need the company
The dead eyes of the city have got me reeling
And I'm not much for dreaming

And you look like a grand hotel
Dressed in blue soliloquies
You think that you could be that for me
And could you help me to wind down

You can tell me every little secret
I'll be your gun(?) and you can
You can let it bleed if you need to
And I won't drop the dime and you can
Cry if you like
It gets too much sometimes
Cry if you like
Until the poison in your eyes just seems to subside

Everybody wants you here
They all want to wear you on their best side (?)
Boys scream your name
The girls curse your pride
Your French confidants and (?)
They do the best venom stare on the lawn
They moan to you all of their favorite songs
But you been hiding here with me
Out on the brightest spotlights on the floor

    Lyric CorrectionI'll be your guide and you can

    Guide, not gun. I think.

    General CommentI think it's "They do their best Fred Astaire [impressions] on the lawn" not "They do the best venom stare on the lawn."
    I love the way Brian Fallon sings this song.
