The Gaslight Anthem – Mae lyrics

Stay the same, don't ever change
Cause I'd miss your ways
With your Bette Davis eyes
And your mama's party dress

While this city pumps it's aching heart
For one more drop of blood,
We work our fingers down to dust
And we wait for kingdom come
With the radio on

I wanna see you tonight
Would you come for a drive?
You can lean into me
If you ain't been in love for a while

I was born beside a river
That flows to a raging sea
That will one day serve to quell
Or one day be the death of me

In my faded jeans and far away eyes
And salty carnival kiss
That all my former lovers say
Was once magnificent

I wanna see you tonight
Would you come for a drive?
You can lean into me
And if you ain't oh if you ain't...

I wanna see you tonight
Would you come for a drive?
You can lean into me
If you ain't been in love for a while

And still this city pumps it's aching heart
For one more drop of blood
We work our fingers down to dust
While we wait for kingdom come
With the radio on

It's been so long Mae, so long
It's been so long Mae, so long
But since the radio's on...
