Well, I'm lost
Rope tying down a leaky boat
If I'm more then it means less
I'm your dress near the back of your knees and your slip is showing
Up the street in the town that you were born in
And a Miss Somewhere sash, waving like the queen
I'm never certain how to spell
Throw away my misery
It never sent a get-well card.
And I'm broke, like a bad joke
Where a little boy under a table with cake in his hair
And his father laughed and talked on the long ride home
And he thought about how everyone dies someday
And fell asleep in his brand new winter coat
Buy me a shiny new machine that runs on lies and gasoline
And disassembles my despair
It never once bought me a drink
