lyrics

Just come from the bar
where I almost fought man
over some long-leg
I half-hearted tried to bed.

Now, here I am
outside the front door
Let me in, it’s cold
or ain’t I welcome anymore?

I see you fixed the window.
You rearranged the place.
You painted the bathroom
that color I hate.

Maybe I am drunk,
but I do want you back.
Isn’t that enough
or is it too much to ask?

Dog was sick Tuesday.
Last night she passed.
I got fired from the firehouse
for sniffing some gas.

If I don’t love you,
why I am I back?
Why you keep asking
dumb questions like that?

Tell all your sisters
I’ve changed very well.
If they don’t believe it
they can all burn in hell.

Maybe I am drunk,
but I still can’t see why
when I try to kiss you
you start to cry.

You cleaned out the fridge.
You drank all my beer.
It’s almost like
I never lived here.

You got a light?
Cause I need a smoke.
I’ve been thinking some things
Some things you should know

I’m sorry for everything
that I’ve done to you.
What you let me do it for?
What’s the matter with you?

Maybe I am drunk,
but there’s laws in this land.
No matter who he is
gotta stand by your man.

Been to the doctors.
It’s cancer I’m told.
Don’t seem like a terrible
important thing to know.

Appointment on Friday.
They won’t see me there.
I’d rather spend time with
someone who once cared.

Don’t look at me like that.
I’m down on my knees.
I need you so bad, baby.
My soul ain’t at ease.

Maybe I am drunk,
but something ain’t right
when a man’s got to live,
then the man’s got to die
