LYRICS


Nothin' I Can Do

my face turned blue when I heard the news that you were gone and you were walking away

but that don't bother me at all, no that don't bother me at all

I was battered and bruised from the shit you threw at all the things that I was trying to say

but that don't bother me at all, no that don't bother me at all and I'll tell you why

why I don't mind the things you do 'cause I've got something on my mind you said that probably wasn't true

but every time, oh every time I think of you it reminds me that there's nothing I can do

you gave me hell when I broke your spell and now your magic turned to lies on the floor

but that don't bother me at all, no that don't bother me at all

my bones are tired and my throat's on fire and I don't think that I could care anymore

but that don't bother me at all, no that don't bother me at all and I'll tell you why

why I don't mind the things you do 'cause I've got something on my mind you said that probably wasn't true

but every time, oh every time I think of you it reminds me that there's nothing I can do


Dropdown

you've got diamonds in your pockets, baby, you've got magic in your hands

let's drain the ocean from the bottom slowly and write our names in drier sand

this ain't some kind of reaction statement, I know you're trying to be tough

but when a telephone's ringing in an empty room do you have to go and pick it up

if I fall turn me on top my head and paint the walls cherry bomb and fire red

and watch it all in the dropdown

can you tell me something certain, maybe, or is it truth I wanna hear

let's light a fire in the red brick chimney 'cause it's the burn I wanna feel

you say that you're feeling tragic lately, well, "c'est la vie d'alone"

I know you're tired when the go gets going but I'm just a sinking stone

if I fall turn me on top my head and paint the walls cherry bomb and fire red

and watch it all in the dropdown

hold me tight when the world turns over, I wanna live forever, I know it's now or never

just give me time and I'll tell you all about it


Who Knows, Who Knows

I drink coffee every afternoon so, I can stay up late and watch the moon

can we sit here if you have to leave and talk about heaven and the meaning of dreams

I could tell you that I'm certainly certain that all the hurt is worth the moments of hurting

I could tell you but I probably won't say a word

'cause when we're nose to nose who knows, who knows, who knows wrong or who knows right

but when we're eye to eye I don't know why we ever had to fight

I drink whiskey every single night so, I can beg to differ with the morning light

can we sit here if you have to go and sing songs about Elvis and watch films about ghost

I could tell you that I'm certainly certain that all the hurt is worth the moments of hurting

I could tell you but I probably won't say a word

'cause when we're nose to nose who knows, who knows, who knows wrong or who knows right

but when we're eye to eye I don't know why we ever had to fight

listen darling when the nights get long, the work ain't over or the hurt ain't gone

but when you're driving through those empty streets you can still come home to me


House On A Hill

it's been a long time coming through the rain and the flooding to the houses where we used to live

but if I don't remember now I guess I never will

and I've had ten ten long years of whiskey and tears and a life that wasn't good to me

but just across the river there's a house on a quiet street

and all the wrongs and the rights I've forgotten and I'm putting all my faith in forgiveness

it's been 500 miles since the last I tried to call you on the telephone

I've been spending my money driving across the country alone

I'm weighing all of my sins with the best of my grin but the devil ain't the kidding kind

but if you look my in the eyes I will apologize, oh I should apologize

and all the wrongs and the rights I've forgotten and I'm putting all my faith in forgiveness

oh I should apologize...
