The Gaslight Anthem – Red Violins lyrics

There is no use to holler
No use to cry
20 pounds of curses came to visit me tonight

Lets offer all the cuts,
Blankets full of cold
Prayers to keep the devil far away from those I love
And There were red violins praying in my dreams
One for me and 2 for me, and one at Jesus feet
And one I only reach to for sympathy

And if you want it then you want it
For when your falling on your knees
I seen ya howling now and foaming at the mouth
I have red violins
Playin' you to sleep

Chariots swing low If you come to me
Aint it now the strangest sound when they call off for relief
And look at all these people clappin' steady to the beat
Of ambulances are on their way to me

And if you wanna then you wanna
Everybody pays the price to feed
And since ya howling now and foaming at the mouth
Then you fall and you fall in your knees
I since you struck right off your feet
I play red violins

And you are now my existence
You're part of that which still remains
And you're lingering like fingered strings
I've seen called on the field of pain
Oh red violins,
Oh red violins

And if you want it then you want it
Can't you see they callin' at your feet?
You see me howling now I'm foaming at the mouth
Come on and grieve for my disease

There were red violins
Playing in my dreams
There were red violins
Playing in my dreams
There were red violins
There were red violins
There were red violins
There were red violins
Playing in my dreams
