Coates – Grin And Tonic lyrics

I’ve seen a girl with gin and tonic
Her life’s sorrows stamped upon it
She dreams of a life once made
In a blizzard in a in a flash hotel

She can’t handle her money setback
This city won’t give her old life back
She just craves wealth and fame
Its just the way she’s made

I’ve seen it, I’ve breathed it
Its pressed all over your face

You’re so ashamed, don’t blame yourself
You’re not the only one, who’s on the run
You take your time, don’t break your mind
You’re not the only one, who’s gone too long

She leaves every night in tow
With a fat lad with lots of doe
She dreams of a night alone
Bad habits break the dream

And now its time to point the finger
No more money just time to linger on
Accusation and tax evasion
It’s these super injunctions that we seek

I've seen it, I've read it
Its smeared all over your face

You’re so ashamed, don’t blame yourself
You’re not the only one, who’s on the run
You take your time, don’t break your mind
You’re not the only one, who’s gone too long

That girl she’s got a grin and tonic
No more sorrows stamped upon it
Lost dreams of a life once made
These are the times that we live in
