The pills that I took tonight Won't let me sleep. I'm pacing the floor With sweet dreams of you. I spend most of my time Hanging on a bar, Running 'gainst my hard blues And losing the race. When I get to the finish I'm right back at the start, Trying to chase another Sad memory away.
I went to the city, Felt like playing the star, Feeding the fires Of the honkey-tonk queens. But dealing in the flesh scene Won't get you very far, A man needs a woman If you know what I mean.
Chorus : Lonesome moon in a crystal black sky, The bottle's been dry for a while. I done walked through the soles Of my new cowboy boots, Pacing the floor with Sweet dreams of you.
A guitar picker Leads a serious life, Trying to find the love light To put in his song. Trying to find the one lick That's gonna make it alright. Struggling with the right words That all come out wrong
