Jenny Lewis – Acid Tongue lyrics

I went to a cobbler to fix a hole in my shoe
He took one look at my face and said "I can fix that hole in you"
I beg your pardon I'm not looking for a cure
I've seen enough of my friends in the depths of the Godsick blues

You know I'm a liar (liar)
You know I'm a liar (liar)
Nobody helps a liar (liar)

Cause I've been down to Dixie and dropped acid on my tongue
Tripped upon the land till enough was enough
I was a little bit lighter
And adventure on my sleeve
I was a little drunk and looking for company
So I found myself a sweetheart with the softest of hands
We were unlucky in love but I'd do it all again

We built ourselves a fire (fire)
We built ourselves a fire (fire)
You know I'm a liar (liar)
You know I'm a liar (liar)
And you don't know what I've done

And by the rolling river is exactly where I was
There was no snake or cure for unlucky in love
To be lonely is a habit like smoking or taking drugs
And I've quit them both but man was it rough
(Man was it rough)
And now I am tired (tired)
It just made me tired (tired)
Lets build ourselves a fire (fire)
Lets build ourselves a fire (fire)
