Steve Poltz – Music Box lyrics

We staggered outside
Two figures imposing
We were bobbing and weaving
The pubs were all closing
We stumbled upstairs as the rain started pouring
The roommate was naked and passed out and snoring

Then I believe I drunk-dialed your number
My hands started shaking
I felt encumbered
I poured a bourbon in a tumbler with rocks
Your voice sounded just like a music box
Your voice sounded just like a music box

No pain, no gain
I drive you insane
Left in the rain
My heart is stained

You yelled in my ear for me to get home
But the party was raging and I dropped the phone
We tripped outside as the sun started rising
We tried to buy more, but it was false advertising

Then I believe we trolleyed to Mexico
We shot tequila
The sun was a-glow
I dialed your number at the phone by the docks
Your voice sounded just like a music box
Your voice sounded just like a music box

No pain, no gain
You drive me insane
Left in the rain
Your heart is stained
Hope we're not through
P.s. I love you

Well we almost got locked up for public urination
But we paid off the cops right in front of the station
We sheepishly crossed the international border
And back in the states, well, our lives were in order

Then I believe I finally came home
I said I was sorry, you looked so alone
I stripped all the way to my boxers and socks
Your voice sounded just like a music box
Your voice sounded just like a music box

No pain, no gain
I drive you insane
I am to blame
Our hearts are stained
Hope we're not through
P.s. I love you
