Green River – Smiling And Dyin' lyrics

Only you make the grey skies black (3x)
So why do I keep coming back?
Misery loves company baby
That's why I love you
Going down to your ---(?)
You call me ----(?)

Judge a man by the company he keeps
My love, she's a falling clown
Smilin' & dyin' all night long
My company don't keep so well

Smiling & dyin' all night long (5x)
Only you make the grey skies black (5x)
Only you keep me coming back (2x)
