lyrics

I hear your voice as it rings inside my head
You’re a long time dead
For all you drink still this pain won’t go away
But it will someday

I said, you’re all straight laced
Just a pretty face, that’s not my taste
She said, you drink too much,
Smoke too much, you’re all fucked up
I said, don’t you know it babe
That’s how I behave, that’s how I stay sane
She said, you call this sane
You’re wrecked again, this is insane

I said, don’t throw me lines
It’s what I despise, my only compromise
She said, that’s the conscious mind
Love is blind, you’ll see in time
I said, how can I see
You’re right in front of me, blocking the TV
She said, don’t play the fool
It’s not clever or cool, I’m talking to you

I hear your voice as it rings inside my head
You’re a long time dead
For all you drink still this pain won’t go away
But it will someday

I said, you’re awake this time
Light hits my eyes, its only half past 5
She said, I’m off to the gym
You’ll be soaked in gin, before I begin
I said, I’ll leave the shorts until half past 4
But don’t forget yours

I said, for all of the fights and the sleepless nights
We’re doing alright
She said, more than alright
Like a pig in shite, as daddy would cite
I said, this was meant to be
You and me, a classic tragedy
She said, ever the pessimist
Must you persist, in taking no risks

I hear your voice as it rings inside my head
You’re a long time dead
For all you drink still this pain won’t go away
But it will someday
