Between The Bars


Recommended Posts

Drink up, baby, stay up all night

With the things you could do, you won't but you might

The potential you'll be that you'll never see

The promises you'll only make


Drink up with me now and forget all about

The pressure of days, do what I say

And I'll make you okay and drive them away

The images stuck in your head


People you've been before that you

Don't want around anymore

That push and shove and won't bend to your will

I'll keep them still


Drink up, baby, look at the stars

I'll kiss you again, between the bars

Where I'm seeing you there, with your hands in the air

Waiting to finally be caught


Drink up one more time and I'll make you mine

Keep you apart, deep in my heart

Separate from the rest, where I like you the best

And keep the things you forgot


People you've been before that you

Don't want around anymore

That push and shove and won't bend to your will

I'll keep them still


sigh :/
