Versuri Ludo - Drunken Lament

Album: Ludo - Youre Awful I Love You 2008

Self-loathing is quaint
You told me, showing restraint
Now you're gone, and I'm lost
In the swells, I am tossed
Bobbing and choaking and losing the fight in the fog

You said forever
Tell me why can't you stay?

I'd ride in your pocket all day
But I just don't fit, say the word and I'll change
I'm throwing a party tonight
I drink more than a sailor I'm sure
Pour the rum in my eyes, tell me lies


Drunk since Saturday
Without you, without restraint
It still stings where you stung
Water swings in my lungs
I'm starving for words that would ration my sadness away

Tell me forever
Tell me you'll come back to stay


You were the mermaid for me
Till one day, you found your feet
Leaving me
In the God-awful bottle, a model of heartache and grief
