Holloways – Aspirin lyrics

A man and his wife and kids stand on the stream
He's got two little girls just knee high from his feet
But as he turns to say goodbye
He's got a kiss for the girls but not his wife
He looks to the sky and he wonders oh where
Oh where went all of life
And hope dissolves like an aspirin on his tongue
An able bodied boy with an able mind
He falls for the wrong sort proving love is blind
They fell in love after falling in bed
They tried to smile when the doctor said
You created a life but you failed to say
You shot your own life stage
And hope dissolves like an aspirin on his tongue
An old man sits with a beer and a barrel and a gun
He says of all he's lost and all he's won
He's got one last thing last to declare
As he sits there dying in his rocking chair
Stop this (?)
Or I'll tear out all my hair
And hope dissolves like an aspirin on his tongue (3x)
