lyrics

Beautiful stranger
Get your hand off my shoulder
What do you know about love
If nobody told you?

That my love is as strong as the bars on a window
Of a 24 hour liquor and lotto
I can let people in
but it all depends
On what exactly I've got and what exactly you're needin'

On hot July evenings
Ignoring the feeling
I try to figure out why I'm still bleeding
Well I could have forgotten
But it hurt me a lot
And if you ask me one more time
"I'm fine. Believe me."

There are things you can think that will keep you from sleeping
Now I'm lying awake staring at the ceiling
don't get carried away and see shapes in the dark
It'll all go away if I watch the alarm clock

Turn your back on me
Desolation City
It's so easy to be another pillar of salt
When a gust of wind starts to blow in your direction
You'll go chasing it like a bag that's been caught

Beautiful stranger
Get your hand off my shoulder
What do you know about love
Until it's over
