Walked my expectations back

So much for my reprieve

When they’ve handed you your coat and hat

I guess it’s time to leave

 

Back to the clarity of four am

confusion when it’s three

thoughts that sleep can’t overtake

and there’s no rest in the dreams.

So hold me now while I’m tripping

Hold me now while I’m slipping through these blues

 

The door is open but it’s closing in

The windows broke but not opening

A fuse done blown but you put out the light

The trumpets roar but don’t know who to fight

It’s what happens when you stumble in on 

Someone else’s crazy

 only you can save me

 

So hold me now while I’m tripping

Hold me now while I’m slipping through these blues 

So hold me now while I’m tripping

Hold me now while I’m slipping through these blues

 

 Hey, let’s hold this starry night

Hey, make you feel all right now

Hey let’s hold this starry night

Cos there’s a whole lot of love in the room tonight

Gotta make it last until the daylight finds us

 While we’re still slipping through the cracks

 

There’s a light above my bed Sending thoughts into my head

Little things seem so complex Now they’re causing me distress

There’s no reason there’s no rhyme It’s not life it’s doing time Waiting for it to be clear How the hell did I get here

 

So hold me now while I’m tripping

Hold me now while I’m slipping through these blues 

So hold me now while I’m tripping

Hold me now while I’m slipping through these blues

 

Hey lets hold this staryy night

hey lets make you feel all right (repeat until your guitarist gives you the stinkeye then let him finish the solo)
