lyrics

It’s just like I told you
Somewhere down the line
Set up for the knock down
I’m leaving you behind

Haunted by your spirit
I was walkin’ awake for days
But no hand full of rattle snakes
Could keep your face at bay

And I need a shot
Only one more dose
You’re the only love I hate
You’re the only friend I’ve got

We played by the riverside
I slipped too far below
For the rock slide of your smile
It hit the fatal blow

So wish me well on my way
With a suit case of cement
On the river where we once played
And leave me there for dead

And I need a shot
Only one more dose
You’re the only love I hate
You’re the only friend I’ve got

I thought I want to write you
Out of my last act
I cannot leave you
Like it was a scripted fact

Cause I thought I’d see the lines
Soften your sweet laugh
And you would be my crows feet
And I’d be your cataract

And I need a shot
Only one more dose
You’re the only love I hate
You’re the only friend I’ve got
