lyrics

She reaches in her pocket
Pulling out the proof
A damaged 20 dollar bill
She hands it off to you

She doesn’t speak a word
Her eyes just say it all
Like pictures on a postcard
Like numbers on the wall
That’s all

He’s looking for a reason
At the end of every day
Why on this cold barroom stool
Is where he makes his way

3 fingers whiskey bartender
I ain’t going home tonight
Take this damaged 20 dollar bill
Just take it out of sight
That’s all

I feel myself descending
On that long and lonesome road
Each day I feel the presence
Of a thousand sacred ghosts

Guilt is no emotion
To guide you through the night
So I’m guided by the firelight

Waiting by the window
For those headlights in the dark
Pacing though the details
Searching for a spark

The devil’s in chapel
The saint’s are in the hole
And I am in this motel room
Searching for a soul
