Keep it in my pocket
She can’t hold it where she lay
She don’t need it where she is
Plenty of that where it could pay

I sit it by the counter
Where I sell that the things that kill
Propped up by dollar bills
Behind this rusty till

I’m tired of walking this wire
It keeps me awake for heaven's sake
I was made for this girl
I feel lonely
My friends don’t seem to know me
Like I thought they did

Another wasted day
Counting every single breath
So this is what is left
A shawl to wear around my neck

To hold me close to home
When I’m being pulled apart
Why am I always kept away
From what I hold inside my heart

I’m tired of walking this wire
It keeps me awake for heaven's sake
I was made for this girl
I feel lonely
My friends don’t seem to know me
Like I thought they did
I thought they did
But they don’t
