Handsome Family – Bowling Alley Bar lyrics

Dented cars make me think of you
Sitting on a red leather stool
Drinking with your sunglasses on
At the bowling alley bar

And the sound of the crashing pins
Behind us when we kissed
The night I wrecked my father's car
Behind the bowling alley bar

I'm so sorry Donna
Sorry about your sunglasses
I didn't mean to step on them
I didn't mean to laugh when you cried

Cause it was never a waste of time
To drink beer by your side
And watch the fallen pins
Set up right again

Skinny girls in tight red jeans
Kicking cigarette machines
That old woman all alone
Dirty dancing by the phones

Driving circles at 3am
Throwing rocks at mailboxes
You could never see the stars
With those plastic sunglasses on

But it was never a waste of time
To get drunk by your side
And watch the fallen pins
Set up right again
