Punch Brothers – Alex lyrics
Alex, short and sweet
Leave your boyfriend at home and the drinks are on me next week
He seems like a real good guy
But you're only as good as your last good bye

Alex, let your long hair down
Like the prettiest brush you could ever use to paint this town
'Cause you know, as well as I do
That we're only as good as our last good bye

What will we do, where will we go?
Alexandra I don't really know
When will it end?
Whenever you want it to

Alex, to your health
May you never grow out of the need to outdo yourself
And heed not, the jealous cry
Of a sittin' duck stuck to his last good bye

Skyward they flew, till it was as far
To the trees as it was to the stars
And as stardust as peanut shells on the parlour floor

What will we do, where will we go?
Nothin' above and beyond
When will it end?
Alexandra, it's already done

I told ya, honey short and sweet
It's a damn sight better than long and bitter, don't ya think
Keep your feet wet and your eyes dry
'Cause you're only as good as your last good bye
Oh you're only as good as your last good bye
