lyrics

Borrowed suit, Secondhand Dress

If I wish upon a bottle,
and it breaks upon the floor,
would you let me in tomorrow?
would you offer anything more?
you smelt smoke upon his fingers,
you ran your fingers through his hair,
you say this little life of his ain't going nowhere,
but wherever he's going, you'll follow him there

caught between the moon and New York City
caught in a gutter going insane
the sky cracked blue like a bar fight bruise,
we were running in the rain
tell me one of us is holding,
if not then one of us has got to buy,
well you keep on selling your parents postcards
of an old skyline, if it'll keep them off your back
for a little while

why do we keep on living like this?
borrowed suit, and a secondhand dress
