This rock and roll is phony
This barfly life is lonely
It’s where i have to go to punch the clock
Tell you what’s been on my mind
Its you alone every time
But i worry every night you’ve changed the locks
When you said that you’d be sleeping
There’s no secrets that I’m keeping
Went to play some songs for some new peers
Think that I’ve been messing round
Think i should get out of town
Well I’d go but i can’t swim through all the tears

Don’t think that I’ve been lying
I’ve been dying just so i can get back home
Been so caught up in trying
Never hoped that you’d be home alone
And I know your nose has caught the smell of whiskey
And I know I rolled in seven hours late
And I cant believe that you even miss me
Tightrope walking that thin line of love and hate

I’ve hurt you oh so many times
You’re awake in bed
I'm trying rhymes in the room just down the hall
From where you lay
And you think that you come second
That I'm at your call and beckon me
I'm a slave I’ll do whatever you might say
If you sense a broken promise
Like the tears of a fine drama
Rest assured I’ve never meant you harm
But you hate more each evening
When you think I’ve been deceiving
If my hands would make you happy
Take my arms

Don’t think that I’ve been lying
I’ve been dying just so i can get back home
Been so caught up in trying
Never hoped that you’d be home alone
And I know your nose caught the smell of whiskey
And I know I rolled in seven hours late
And I cant believe that you really miss me
Tightrope walking that thin line of love and hate
