My hands wear me down sprawling to touch you once sad to see you go but now I've changed my mind I'll watch you die and I don't mind if you call us friends no, not at all and I don't mind if you call us friends outside these walls when we're done sharing this after all we've got is this when I'll be me again I'm not sure if I can tell you this I'm not sure there's anymore will we be us again? when the lights come crashing down I'll rush to meet you and bow your eyes are so startled when weighed-in way in way way in when the lights come crashing down I'll rush to meet you and bow your eyes are so startled when weighed-in way in way way in when I confess when I intend to do then you are discussed it's true when I don't mind if you call us friends no, not at all I don't mind if you call us friends outside these walls we're done sharing this after all we've got is this when I'll be me again I'm not sure if I can tell you this I'm not sure there's anymore will we be us again? every time we say goodbye I cry (a bird sings) Chords: verse Bb Gmin Eb F chorus Bb F Eb F connecting part Bb C7 Bb Eb Dmin Bb F instrumental bridge Bb D Eb Bb F bridge Bb C7 Bb Eb Dmin

so cruel as usual you're nothing new i'm getting used to living alone and dying alone so play the fool as usual i'm getting used to driving you home and driving home alone so drag the long way home ride by hope to find you alone so long so long so long it's really either this or what you're used to what you used to do and we all know where that's gotten you Chords: intro G Emin C verse G Emin C connecting part D C D bridge CMaj7 G

on only days we end we cry i pull on cords for blinds become tighter and they'll point to sky but i really don't mind now it's only star shine and those whose eyes that find me are so distant not blind and so i'll undress for planes in front of radio waves the passengers waves say was only on my way your feet you're barely missing tile your tile narrow missing mine your feet you're barely missing tile i can feel you undressing from so many miles

about

"..nervously passionate energy of compositional genius..."

".....their greatest achievement so far...."

".....may well be [Phoenix's] Talking Heads and Alexander’s voice finds an affinity for David Byrne’s at his peak....."

".....let’s dance! ”Drag the Long Way Home” has us tapping our feet and clapping our hands to fun piano solos, synths, “OOOs” and well-timed claps....."
