Why do you talk that way
Why you so stuck on money
Now it's the top of the world
But it's beneath the girl I love
You used to speak my name
And you filled it up
And you filled my name up
Filled it up with your spirit
Did he raise a fire
Did you roll up in flames
Turn to black and yellow
Did you think of me at all
And how we cut ourselves
On all the sharp tongues in town
When you thought that I could
Never let you down
My baby died in North Carolina
When she traded me in at the
Newbourne City diner
Remember when you thought that I
Could never let you down
Everyone'll let you down
I'm just an empty hand
And a swollen belly
Born upside down
Guess I'll die before my time
Can't I love you madly
When it's not that way
When it's not the other way
Not the other way around
C'mon and walk me home
With your blessed body
Paint your name on my lips
And the rest comes naturally
Did you scare yourself
And hide that face in the ground
When you thought that I could
Never let you down
My baby died in North Carolina
When she traded me in at the
Newbourne City diner
Remember when you thought that I
Could never let you down
Everyone'll let you down...
All good things, and all the bad things
They all fall down
Everyone'll let you down...
