lyrics

Hold my tongue and hope to die, forked love and bloodshot eyes
A broken thief ensnared in lies sends dreams to cloudy skies
Tears on cheeks, you never cry, I never learned, you never tried
A broken thief ensnared in lies sends dreams to cloudy skies

Am I a prince or a pauper? Keeping secrets like a coffin
Wrap them up mummy, tight, wheezing lungs, forgetting nights
The room it always starts to spin, you'll never be this calm again
Wrap you up, safe and tight, a whiskey kiss to say goodnight
If I call, you'll never know I'll just wait and walk alone

Headlights way up in the sky, pilot's gonna take his life, but
I hope that he keeps you safe drifting over Atlantic wake
When you land just let me know if you'll stay or if you'll go
I'll run along, find someone new, maybe she'll look a
Little like you, a little like you, a little like you
Maybe she'll look a little like you

My baby gets too high on methamphetamine
She does it just to chase away her bad dreams
Where she fights every demon from Satan's side
While she sits all alone in her bed and cries

I'm a Casanova, with no baby in my bed
Make 'em all swoon, from thoughts inside of my head
I'm such a snake charmer, bribing all of you in
Old lady sells snake oil and we all love to sin

My baby gets too high on methamphetamine
Had her an abortion at the age of seventeen
And she fought with the good Lord until he died
While she sat all alone in her bed and cried

And when I hear you cough, I might catch my breath
And when I see you walk, I might miss a step
And when I hear you laugh, I might roll my eyes
And when I see you smile, I think I might die
And when I hear you cough, I might catch my breath
And when I see you walk, I might miss a step
And when I hear you laugh, I might roll my eyes
And when I see you smile, I think I might die
