lyrics

Well I hung my sheets and stomped the streets
In a Richmond summer rain,
And I saw this girl who smiled just like you

Well I burned with regret, like my first cigarette
As you crossed my mind again
And I watched her pass in the polish on my shoe

See, there was a time when you were mine,
And the world was mine as well
But I've a mind as stubborn as a mule

And love, it waits at no man's gate,
It rings at no man's bell
And I boarded all my doors up like a fool


Well I guess this city turned us both to cynics
I guess it got the best of us somehow
If I could turn this wishing into whiskey
Well darling, I'd be drunk by now


There's someone new, he's not like you
He keeps it all inside
I'd sooner summon blood out of a stone

Ain't it strange how some things change
But others don't subside
I'm just terrified we'll both end up alone


Well I guess this city turned us both to cynics
I guess it got the best of us somehow
If I could turn this wishing into whiskey
Well darling, I'd be drunk by now
Oh darling, I'd be drunk by now
