Lyrics

It’s happened once more: I hear you’re drunk again,
A gutter refugee refusing to be tamed,
An empty bottle and a stomach full of pain.

Nothing matters when you’re here,
And I can keep an eye on you,
But evenings when you disappear,
My frets and thoughts are shared for two,
I wish that you would stay at home.

You’re in a bad state; mirrored in your tone,
As a rancid diatribe crackles down my phone,
You want another drink that I wish you’d postpone.

Nothing matters when you’re here,
And I can keep an eye on you,
But evenings when you disappear,
My frets and thoughts are shared for two,
I wish that you would stay at home.

I slam the phone down,
I’ve had enough of your toxic ways,
I grab my car keys,
And head out into the duskbound day,
For you.

I drove down to the centre of town,
And found you prone and sick and pale,
I plucked you from the pavement’s grasp,
And held you close so that I could say,
That I’ve come to take you home.
