She walks to the store for some cat box sand
She stops for a drink and meets a man
He says I wish you were over now
He buys her a drink, they stumble to his house

She likes to drink with broken men
They sit at the bar and wait for it to end
She likes to drink with broken men
They sit at the bar and wait for it to end

Don't open the door on a friendless room
This person who came, couldn't come too soon
Then well, he says thanks for coming home
If not for the bar, I'd spend my life alone

She likes to drink with broken men
Sit at the bar and wait for it to end
She likes to drink with broken men
Sit at the bar and wait for it to end

She says, thanks for coming home
If not for the bar i'd spend my life alone

She likes to drink with broken men
They sit at the bar and wait for it to end
She likes to sleep with broken men
She lies on her back and hates for it to end

    i love this song, as well as every song by Knapsack. i get from this song, that a person has nothing and they are just waiting for something to come along to give them a sense of belonging. and it could come anywhere, at a bar, i guess. for me, i waited around my crappy job, and before i was about to quit, the greatest girl i have ever met started working. so, "if not for the job, id spend my life alone" but thats just me

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
