Lyrics

It gets loneliest at night, down at the liquor store
Beneath the neon sky, our moonlight
Six AM, the floor comes alive with lice, the pan's dried up so tight
With hardened beans, we're hungry

So I lean on you sometimes
Just to see you're still there
Your feet can't take the weight of one, much less two
We hit concrete

How were we born into this mess?
I know I painted you a prettier picture, baby
But we were run out on a rail
Fell from the wagon to the night train

I kissed the bottle
I should have been kissing you
You wake up to an empty night
With tears for two

Cigarettes they fill the gaps in our empty days
In our broken teeth, we're jonesing
Say mister, can you spare a dime, some change could make a change
Could buy some time, some freedom

Or an ear to hear my story, it's all I've got
My fiction beats the hell out of my truth
A palm upturned burnt blue
Don't call it sunburn

You've been shaking on the job
Just one drink ahead of your past
There's a white light coming up
You draw the blinds hoping it'll pass

I kissed the bottle
I should have been kissing you
You wake up to an empty night
With tears for two
