lyrics

Absinthe

Talking only makes it worse
Crying stings the eyeballs
Searching for some gentle dream
Just brings monsters from the walls

Slow music's like a funeral
But I don't hear no other kind
The absinthe bottle we sold our souls for
I do believe it's coming for my mind

I said there was a line we were crossing
You said it would be fine - no it wasn't
It was horrible and now we're missing in the night
Oh, I wanna wake up
Oh, I wanna wake up
Wanna be all right

I don't remember much conversation
Did one of us dare the other to ask
If that's the colour of the alcohol
Or just the colour of the glass?

Twenty four measures between us
It's how we measure our pain
Markings on the face of a disappearing clock
Smiling at us through the rain

I said there was a line we were crossing
You said it would be fine - it so wasn't
It was horrible and now we're missing in the night
Oh, I wanna wake up
Oh, I wanna wake up
Wanna be all right

Come on Joe you can't go this way, you gotta wake up!
Gotta be all right
