Buttons on My Clothes
by Del Amitri



Buttons on My Clothes

I've been drinking all through summer
I guess I've had a laugh
I've had every kind of fun I could have had

Looking at my crowd tonight
There's a sober kind of sparkle in their eyes
That I don't like

'Cause everybody knows she ain't coming back
The buttons on my clothes are as plain to see as that

I'm a man of reputation in this rocker's town
I have lived it up so long I'll never live it down
Every back room bet I've made
Every all night thrill room-service bill I've paid
Looks cheap today

'Cause everybody knows she ain't coming back
The buttons on my clothes are as plain to see as that

I took a chemical vacation in my head
But now I'm back here at the station with a trunk of regret

Thought I found myself a frequency beyond her voice
But the memories keep breaking through the noise
So brother, send a ship for me before I wash upon the shore of clarity
I can see

That everybody knows she ain't coming back
The buttons on my clothes are as plain to see as that

Yeah, everwhere I go, there are ghosts of what I had
Like the buttons on my clothes, they are everywhere I'm at
