Mountain Goats – Flashing Lights lyrics

I am wearing a white long sleeved button-down.
The pink colors behind the clouds tonight
Mirror the softer shades of your nightgown
As the neuro-transmitters go crazy inside of me
You swear you're leaving town
Empty promises empty promises.

I am watching the way the wind seems to pass straight through your body.
When you run your fingernail along my neck, you spill some water on me.

You say you're as good as gone
Well, don't look now but here comes the dawn
Empty promises empty promises.
Empty promises empty promises.
