She's A Hard Drink

from the album "Mr. Buechner's Dream"

Music by Daniel Amos, Words by T.S. Taylor
2001 Zoom Daddy/BMI
There's a sad clown
A slap stick comic
With a neon crown
Here's a mean street
Up the miracle mile
Through the demon heat

1st chorus:
There's a ghost town
In a diamond studded gown
And it's about to take another one down

She's a hard drink
a valentine bed
So pretty in pink
I'm a heart throb
a back alley cat
And a junkyard dog

2nd chorus:
She's a slow leak
And she leads me up the creek

Bridge: We'll lights the skies up
Dim-bulb lovers like me
Are too late to wise up
Between
Old thighs
A new sheen
Same lies

She's a bad dream
Like an adams apple
On a beauty queen

There's a vulture picking me clean

2nd bridge:
She kicks the dust up
It's seeping out of my skin
I'm good with bad luck

I die
She shrugs
New high
Same drugs

She's a slow leak
And she loves to watch me sputter and sink
