lyrics

The Night Before
lyrics by carrie clark
music by carrie clark & greg fulton

She found love in a 7-11, lifting taffy from the candy isle
He was buying cigarettes to wash down with a colt 45
And the fish are all in top hats and the alligators are donning ties
Eating marmalade with sugar cake all washed down with a colt 45

While the savages feed, the distant colors melt to grey
The whiskey clouds my memories like the wine did yesterday

A tango infused with bourbon, a swing induced by wine
Where broken dreams are swallowed down between the bed sheets and turpentine
Now the world is topsy turvey and the drunken band plays on
So pour me another bartender while the boys play another song

And while the savages feed, the distant colors melt to grey
The whiskey clouds my memories like the wine did yesterday
So pour me another bartender, a concoction to drown the day
So the whiskey clouds my memories like the wine did yesterday

And while the savages feed, the distant colors melt to grey
The whiskey clouds my memories like the wine did yesterday
