Heaven I need drug
Her eyes are all but fixed upon her coffee cup
And looking down she tells you things are looking up
Take another slug

Heaven I had a dream
But now my lifes a nightmare of efficiency
She rattles off the things she never got for free
Gearing up to scream

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

Heaven I need a rest
I recognized the voices talking in my head
I couldn't make out everything the voices said
Loving you is a test

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

Heaven I need a drink
I'm here because they're paying me to do my thing
They never specify what it is I should bring
I'm right up on the brink

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

Adelaide Lyrics

Old 97's – Adelaide Lyrics

Heaven I need drug
Her eyes are all but fixed upon her coffee cup
And looking down she tells you things are looking up
Take another slug

Heaven I had a dream
But now my lifes a nightmare of efficiency
She rattles off the things she never got for free
Gearing up to scream

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

Heaven I need a rest
I recognized the voices talking in my head
I couldn't make out everything the voices said
Loving you is a test

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide

Heaven I need a drink
I'm here because they're paying me to do my thing
They never specify what it is I should bring
I'm right up on the brink

I remember when
I had you and you had so much promise then
You promised me that you would never leave again
To be broken you were made Adelaide
