I don't come around
Never call or let her know
I got a life of my own
You know I hate to be around her
When she's like that
I wrote a song once about her
Called "The Brides Have Hit Glass"
You know it just won't last
To be on top of your own world
With no guardrails to cling to
You fall so very fast
It's very odd to find her up again
Staking out expansion
Seeking new exposure

And when she holds out an empty glass
And she comes for a handout
I ask for the same thing-it's sad
And I hold on so sure I can take all she can
Just to be around her
Just to feel bad

One day I will know
That's it's a waste of time
And there's a better road ahead of me
I just don't know how to make it there
So I'll just hang around and take my chance
Once again I'll roll the dice
And try to hang on to my shrinking paradise

And I'll hold out an empty glass
And I'll come for a handout
And I'll ask for the same thing-it's sad
And I'll hold on so confident
That's it all I can give
To try to find my way back
Just to hit glass

    General CommentSimply put, our hero's significant other just keeps taking, and doesn't give anything back. He wants to just leave her and get on with his life, but he's going to stick around until he figures a way out of the situation.

    My Opinion"Once again I'll roll the dice, And try to hang on to my shrinking paradise" - Simply one of the most heartbreaking lyrics I have ever heard.

    General CommentI LOVE the self-referential line "I wrote a song once about her, called "The Brides Have Hit Glass". And, yes, I agree with the previous two comments about the meaning of the song.
