So tired trying to see from out the red in my eyes
No better version of me I could pretend to be tonight
So deep in the swill with the most familiar swine
For reasons wretched and divine

She blows out of nowhere, roman candle of while
Laughing her way through my feeble disguise
No other version of me I would rather to be tonight
Lord she found me just in time

'Cause with my mid-youth crisis all said and done
I need to be youthfully felt
'Cause God I never felt young
She's gonna save me call me baby go right into my head
She'll know me crazy, soothe me daily, yeah and she wouldn't care
We'll steal a Lexus, be detectives, ride 'round picking up clues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson, raise 'em on rhythm and blues

Lord it'd be great to find a place we could escape sometime
Me and my isis growing black irises in the sunshine
Every version of me dead and buried in the yard outside
Sit back and watch the world go by

Happy to lie back, watch it burn and rust
We tried to work, good god it wasn't for us
She's gonna save me, call me baby, running her hands through my hair
She'll know me crazy, soothe me daily, yeah and she wouldn't care
We'll steal a Lexus, be detectives, ride 'round picking up clues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson, raise 'em on rhythm and blues

Cut clean from the dream at night let my mind reset
Looking up from the cigarette, she's already left
Start thinking up the art for what's left of me in our little vignette
For whatever poor soul is coming next

She's gonna save me, call me baby, running her hands through my hair
She'll know me crazy, soothe me daily, yeah and she wouldn't care
We'll steal a Lexus, be detectives, ride 'round picking up clues
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson, raise 'em on rhythm and blues
