Running Red Lights – Parlour Cafe lyrics

Oh, the mountains have folded
The bird is back in it's cage
I'm back tending bar at The Parlour Cafe
Sweeping bottlecap ashtrays, repeat and repeat
Patching holes in my sky where my stars used to be

And I lose
I lose

Now the bar is full of ladies for the 2AM draw
Who's getting who, Ms. Lonely or Mr. Loneliest-Of-All
In the arms of a stranger, they all sink like a stone
'Cause they're all scared of dying, or dying alone

And they lose
Oh, how they lose

You take what you can to comfort your blues
Cocaine or cowboys, it don't matter to you
All your tenderness is broken 'cause you've been hard on your knees
You've been swimming in shit, girl, as deep as the sea

And you lose
Oh, how you lose

And we lose
Oh, how we lose

Oh, the mountains have folded
The bird is back in it's cage
I'm back tending bar at The Parlour Cafe
