Salty leave, salty leave

Tell me the one about the friend you knew
And the last good night that we toasted too

Salty leave
Stay for me, stay for me

We drank wine in the matinee
And the spotlight showed what it chased away

Stay for me

She saw my comb over, her hourglass body
She has problems with drinking milk
And being school tardy
She'll loan you her toothbrush
She'll bar tend your party

Kill me, kill me

I called and called, but I can't get through
Said he's on his own, but his own is you

Kill me

She saw my comb over, her hourglass body
She has problems with drinking milk
And being school tardy
She'll loan you her toothbrush
She'll bar tend your party

She saw my comb over, her hourglass body
She has problems with drinking milk
And being school tardy
She'll loan you her toothbrush
She'll bar tend your party

(hm hm hm hm hm hm hm hm hm)

    General CommentI've hear d some confusion about the use of "comb over" since Caleb Followill isn't bald and doesn't rock one.

    Since this song is about a woman leaving him, I think the "comb over" he's talking about relates to the typical arc of a relationship. You meet someone and initially you don't relaly know them, but as you spend more time together you get to know who they really are. So the comb over is his analogy for her seeing who he really was, discovering whatever he was hiding, etc. And when she saw whatever it was she'd missed before, she left.

    But that's just my opinion.
