Lyrics

You write me tortured love letters And I like it - yes I do We're drinking bourbon in the middle of the summer In a dark and smoky room You walk in and sit down on the empty seat You ask me what I drink - I say I drink here for free But you can still sit here and talk to me You wear fedoras and you sing pretty songs There's a mysterious scar beneath you eye You sleep on a twin bed mattress on the floor In a fourth story walk up in the barrio I've admired you up close and also from afar I've been staying on the south side dear Above a mariachi bar The devil took your will And an angel towed your car I guess this is a star crossed thing This is the pirate’s life and I will walk the plank My heart has sank again We are full of dispair and disease From living in the city instead of sailing the seas I've admired you up close and also from afar I've been living on the south side dear Above a mariachi bar The devil took you will And an angel towed your car I guess this is a star crossed thing
