Lent

10 Sad Songs

Lent.mp3

To laugh my cares away, like trying to turn the water into wine.
So I’ll drink my share today and leave this love lost weary world behind.

Just barkeep keep it coming with the whiskey and the wine
Cause tonight I need a stronger drink to ease my shaking mind
Don’t raise me from my grave, I will not repay the price
Till I’ve made it through this abnegation for forty days and forty nights
Of pain and prayer
Seems you love them then they lie
To be alone’s my greatest fear
But I know this too I will survive
Lean to and I’ll confide teachings that I never learned in school.
Laugh as I cast aside these newly minted lessons of a fool.

Just barkeep keep it coming with the whiskey and the wine
Cause tonight I need a stronger drink to ease my shaking mind
Don’t raise me from my grave, I will not repay the price
Till I’ve made it through this abnegation for forty days and forty nights
Of pain and prayer
Seems you love them then they lie
To be alone’s my greatest fear
But I know this too I will survive

Tonight’s my mardi gras, nothing left but ashes in the morn.
When I leave this smokey bar I know that I will surely be reborn.

Just barkeep keep it coming with the whiskey and the wine
Cause tonight I need a stronger drink to ease my shaking mind
Don’t raise me from my grave, I will not repay the price
Till I’ve made it through this abnegation for forty days and forty nights
Of pain and prayer
Seems you love them then they lie
To be alone’s my greatest fear
But I know this too I will survive

Tonight’s my mardi gras, nothing left but ashes in the morn.
