So long, sentimental lady
Is there something that
Youre trying to say to me?
It aint how you thought
That it would be.
So if I die before I wake
It must have been a bad mistake
Depending on the pills you take
Can complicate and devastate.
Now estimate! Your time on earth;
Do you recall your place of birth?
And can you tell what its all worth,
And are you really satisfied?
Paint me a picture of a baby
(I want to see how lonesome I can be)
I dont want no one to save me
And Im not going to leave here silently
Now what I have and what Ive lost and
Every coin Ive fountain tossed;
Like every line I thought I crossed
Just cut me when the winter frost,
I paid the cost; your rebel dreams
Suitcases and magazines
And I know I aint alone
If I make it to the city,
Wont you do your best and honey pray for me?
They say that all the girls are pretty
They say that they dont dance for free
But forks and knives and rusted spoons
Bottomless in basement rooms
Your worn-out brides and reckless grooms
Are building tombs with pink balloons,
Then darkness looms an airless night;
Just a matchbook and some dynamite
And it wont matter whos wrong or right
Cause theyre too tired to care
I cant help it but to ramble
I dont ever stay too long
Daddy warned you not to gamble
He said: just pass your chips along
Nursery rhymes and valentines
Blessed Be The Tie That Binds
a thousand mouths can speak one mind
(while love is still left undefined)
and undermined, misunderstood;
she hides beneath her happy hood,
saying: what is God? and What is Good
and Why am I still here?
