lyrics

Pretty baby, pin me up like a doll
Let's ride out the highs and marinate in the fall
Let's get to the grit, strip down to ideals
Let's cradle our egos just to see how it feels

They'll say, there she goes, she's at it again
The talking point of the town, we'll never understand
Feeling and being and drinking too much,
Taking inhibitions and smashing them up

But oh,
You really killed me kid
You always do, you always did
Your whiskey stones, your white headphones
It's always the wrong time to leave me alone
And the rum seemed to rob us of the purity left,
Gone in February been numb ever since
All I want is a chance to do it all over
I'm asking honey,
You wanna try this sober?

Darlin', darlin', I'm not one for excuses
I know I went wild and I don't need you to prove it
Crippled by carnal and left you embarrassed
All I'm left with are bottles and no one to share them

You'll say, there you go, you're at it again,
The talking point of the town you'll never understand
Feeling and being and drinking too much
Taking inhibitions and smashing them up

But oh,
You really killed me kid
You always do, you always did
Your whiskey stones, your white headphones
It's always the wrong time to leave me alone
And the rum seemed to rob us of the purity left,
Gone in February been numb ever since
All I want is a chance to do it all over
I'm asking honey,
You wanna try this sober?

And oh,
what I would do
to be lying next to you
my twin Jung sign
I'm aching all the time

But oh,
You really killed me kid
You always do, you always did
Your whiskey stones, your white headphones
It's always the wrong time to leave me alone
And the rum seemed to rob us of the purity left,
Gone in February been numb ever since
All I want is a chance to do it all over
I'm asking honey,
You wanna try this sober?
