Your parted lips will drag cigarettes and you're going out again with her inside you Cornered with every move, dollars fall into her fingers, you can't beat her but you, you still abuse her More mother than your own, more lover than you've known Sweet and warm, dark and wet, give her up You're still young, twice as old, she's in your veins, give her up, give her up She can't be the books you read or the religion that you seek You bleed she's in your blood, think of the years, think of the years you've lost to her More mother than your own, more lover than you've known Sweet and warm, dark and wet, give her up You're still young, twice as old, she's in your veins, give her up, give her up

go first into the water, hold your head under I had so much fear but tricked my teacher and floated away crawled into the banks behind dead trees and brush I watched others as they drowned I was driven to tears can I stop wading? I was filled with grief but there was another we got out of the river and walked to the city even though it was empty hiding out we found your house and we prayed took a chance and told you what we'd done can I stop wading?

The fire's been lit and I hope you still love this house 'cause I just burned it down how does it feel to know you made it out? I don't want your ghost to live with me (I) don't take coffee black sugar and cream are like compliments to me and should be used, sparingly I don't want your ghost to live with me I don't want your ghost to touch me a phonecall away your coat and your tie are still on my floor it pains me so, honey I think you can tell it's making me sour I don't want your ghost to live with me I don't want your ghost to live with me I don't want your ghost to live with me

Honey I'm a monster with my claws on your shirt Your like a child with your paws on my skirt All my hidden charms have turned for a curse Devotion dangerous and turned for the worse It's dead It's like parking your car where there ain't room for it Or not a damn thing on your TV set You left shoes to fill in a field too rough You left a broken girl and she ain't loved enough It's dead This is self-aware, but I am lost and I'm half-relieved and tired enough, and I'll take a few to live and learn to cry in shame, to feel and burn Is this the love that chose to drown? I think it lives but still might die It's dead

Sweet baby's gonna sleep all day he is blessed with the rest of the dead, that is, until he's awake he's got the eyes of his mom and the heart of his daddy no pressure is on until he is ready he's got his whole life ahead of him So goodnight, baby good night sleep tight baby, you know you've got your whole life ahead of you so baby goodnight You better thank your lucky stars that girl of yours don't go to bars you do whiskey and lies resize the mind of a man like you it weren't your worst night out or your best one either I'll put a song in your heart to put you to sleep or you're poppin' those pills just to get some relief So goodnight, baby good night goodnight baby, you know you've got your whole life ahead of you so baby goodnight John Henry was tall and lean and like him you're a man against your machines I'll put a prayer book next to your eyes and a song in your heart to kill your disease but, baby, you know it's time to make your peace So goodnight, baby good night goodnight baby, you know you've got a long road ahead of you so baby goodnight
