Voxtrot – Dirty Version

from “The Start of Something” 7″ (Bus Stop Label, 2004)

Try to sleep a mile in this town
stretch yourself across the bed
We can get the boys to come round
We’ll watch the day decay

I remember we were reckless
Half asleep across the floor
I was young and we got restless
Oh pretty girls make graves

Do you have the nerve to ask me
What’s the center of your world
I am drunk with love, set me free
Promise you won’t forget

Make believe that time is resting
sorrow on a fading chair
Please be waiting where I left you
This summer’s set to set

And I bet he had a habit
of pulling down the wall
and I bet he made a fine job
of bending all the rules

I go east to west in this place
my feet upon your steps
screaming louder than a gunshot
I haven’t finished with you yet

Lisa wants a revolution
I can see you’ve had your fill
yours is just a dirty version
I’m gonna walk away

Can’t you see that your big promise
Fell apart in ’73
Give yourself to something honest
what makes a man today

Baby let me follow you down
Market to a lonely place
Part of us belongs to this town
Maybe I’m made to run

Baby I’m on my last chances
On the run from time to time
Sharp enough to feel so worthless
The season has come and gone

and I bet he had a habit
of pulling down the wall
and I bet he made a fine job
of bending all the rules

I go east to west in this place
my feet upon your steps
screaming louder than a gunshot
I haven’t finished with you yet

and I bet he had a habit
of pulling down the wall
and I bet he made a fine job
of bending all the rules

I go east to west in this place
my feet upon your steps
screaming louder than a gunshot
I haven’t finished with you yet
