Out from my window, the people are passing on by
I hear them complain, but I know that they don't even try
And the lights down on main street don't shine like they used to
I'm thinking of nothing but spending a lifetime with you
You know that I love you, you know that I wait by the door
You know how I'm feeling, so I won't have to feel it no more
And nobody could love you
Like I can
Honey someday you'll wake up and maybe you'll understand
Well I've got a friend of a friend who drives a nice car
And I've got acquaintances down at the neighborhood bar
I got some women, stop by my home
But somehow I end up, waking each morning alone
The train that I ride's got nothing aside
From the phantom conductor with a dog at his side
And the ghost of a weeping, weddingless bride
Who should have been married but never arrived
And I see through the windows like I see through the lies
Like I see through every useless disguise
That everyone wears,
But everyone swears
That they don't
Oh and don't mind me baby,
I'm only dying slow
I'm trying so hard, just not to think about you
I try not to care about anything that you do
4 in the morning, I can't sleep
Well the pills ain't working and I can't get no relief
I feel like a hound dog moaning along with the rain
Anyday now the jukebox could drive me insane
There's an old man in the corner
Nobody knows
He says laugh while you can 'cause someday you'll be wearing my clothes
Well I guess I can't tell you what you don't already know
I ain't no prophet my landlord he told me so
My mind is a burning rain
Of Saturn Flame
I feel things inside that I
I just can't explain
Well I know that you know how to fake and to take
What you break, what you burn, what you never did learn
And you turn and you say that you made a mistake
As your head starts to spin and your heart starts to ache
But all that you make will be all that you get
When the curtain goes down, so don't you forget
That all your regret is a cheap silhouette and that's all
Oh and don't mind me baby
I'm only dying slow
I met a gambler who did nothing but lose all day
He had love in his arms but he let her slip away
And all he ever wanted was to give her a win
But all she ever really wanted was him
