lyrics

Was a tale without an ending the memory never left
even what I dont remember I am trying to forget
line em up bartender you know what I want is wet
tilt the bottle toward splendor lets pretend we never left

the full moon above the island the waves wash away regret
the temperature is rising I think about you and I sweat
desperation is a wild friend keeps you out all night
left my troubles on the mainland think that Im insane man cause Im
never going back

Im a man I make mistakes why do the answers always come too late
where I go its all the same learn to carry lies and live with shame
Im not getting any younger today Im half alive but Im okay
where I go its all the same find a bar and numb the pain

Had so many roads to choose from took the one right outta town
if you take a chance to come up you gotta let somebody down
as I stare at peeling paint behind the bottles on the wall
my mind is like this island being punished by a squall

and I remember too like it was just this afternoon
every-time I glanced at the clock waiting for you to knock
the days are warm here on the island but the nights are so hot
and home is an inconvenient song that keeps playing... it wont stop

Im a man I make mistakes why do the answers always come too late
where I go its all the same learn to carry lies and live with shame
Im not getting any younger today Im half alive but Im okay
where I go its all the same find a bar and numb the pain
