lyrics

nobody’s crying here, but nobody’s happy
it seems we’re damned if we can and damned if we can’t be
‘quit beating around the bush’ she said ‘just tell me what you want
I’m tired of giving this thing everything I got’
it’s another cup of coffee, it’s another cigarette
it’s another way to dance around what will break us in the end
it’s another day in limbo, it’s another night in vain
it’s another god damn promenade through heavy rain

give me something real, something new
something more than holding on to you
something true, nothing borrowed
something that will get me to tomorrow

I missed the last train to Alberta, guess I’ll hitch a ride
maybe find some sort of answer in the way a stranger drives
Ontario’s in the rearview but I ain’t looking back
she said, ‘leave my to my living’ and it’s a simple as that
the highway loves a gambler an the highway loves a sin
and each town along the way will spit you out as soon as you are in
it’s another day in limbo, it’s another night in vain
it’s another god damn promenade through heavy rain

give me something real, something new
something more than holding on to you
something true, nothing borrowed
something that will get me to tomorrow
