Lyrics

Oh baby here comes the sound
I took a train outta New Orleans and they shot me full of ephedrine
This is how we like to do it in the murder scene
Can we settle up the score?

If you were here I’d never have a fear
So go on live your life
But I miss you more than I did yesterday

You’re beautiful

Well I’m a total wreck and almost every day
Like the firing squad or the mess you made
Well don’t I look pretty walking down the street
In the best damn dress I own?

If you were here I’d never have a fear
So go on live your life
But I miss you more than I did yesterday
You’re so far away
So c’mon show me how
‘Cause I mean this more than words can ever say

Some might say we are made from the sharpest things you say
We are young and we don’t care
Your dreams and your hopeless hair
We never wanted it to be this way
For all our lives
Do you care at all?

If you were here I’d never have a fear
So go on live your life
But I miss you more than I did yesterday
You’re so far away
So c’mon show me how
‘Cause I mean this more than words can ever say

(Won’t you tell me?)
(Well, there’s no way I’m kissing that guy)
