lyrics

bonnie taylor lies through her teeth
even when she's up against a wall.
sometimes i hear her talking
even though she don't make sense at all.
she's got a friend
but only long enough for what its worth.
she claims she's got a new boyfriend
on the fact that she saw him first.

the old crowd is hanging in the hall
wondering who to blame.
i'd go in myself to get a drink and all
but i haven't got a dollar to my name.
they should have hung a sign on the entryway
that says, ''we charge five dollars at the door."
even though its a club i used to play
they don't let me walk in for free anymore.

i consider myself a stranger
and a drifter by trade.
my feet will keep on walking
when i'm buried in my grave.
tonight the moon creeps through the treetops
and the snow is just beginning to melt.
i'd write down what i'm feeling
if i knew what it was i felt.
