I sold my silver tongue down at the pawn shop
It was the only way to stop
It was the only way to stop
I'm sanding down my shoulders to toughen up my skin
So my straps don't slip
So my straps don't slip
I'm loading up my gun and setting my sights
So I'm ready for tonight
So I'm ready for tonight
I went floating through the deep end of my sins
And I can't even swim
And I can't even swim

Hey there, thousand yard stare, I've been missing you
Next time I'm in town I'll hang around to hear you sing the blues

I'm breaking in my ears to the sound of your voice
I didn't have a choice
I didn't have a choice
I wore out my heels and I wore out my toes
No one else will know
No one else will know
I tried to steal you a smile and steal me a kiss
It wasn't quite like this
It wasn't quite like this
I'm building up a city around my lonely bones
I always told you so
I always told you so

Hey there, no one ever cares, I've been missing you
Next time I'm around I'll swing through town and listen to your blues

I'm digging up trenches for names on my list
It's all in the kiss
It's all in the kiss
I'm breaking the calluses built on my wrists
It's too good to miss
It's too good to miss
It's making my fingertips search for your hips
Just another tryst
Just another tryst
So I'm dragging your name across my dry lips
You're making me itch
You're making me itch

Hey there, nothing's fair, I've been missing you
Next time I'm down we'll head uptown and together we'll sing the blues
