Lyrics

Ballad Of Tom Waits

I walked the line & climbed the walls, slept in the gutter and the hallowed halls
I’ve been lied to & taken for granted, been ridiculed & my confidence shattered

I’ve seen blood & I’ve shed tears, lost my faith & found my fears
I Hid in shadows & I felt the fire, been down so low now I’m getting higher
And you were there

On the corner of heart attack & vine beats the heart of Saturday night
And echo’s to the sounds of a blue valentine
As Tom Waits is singin’ to me the piano has been drinkin’
You see, it’s another downtown train to closing time

I’ve been the saint, I’ve been a sinner separated like losers and winners
I’ve drifted through space and time like some Dr. Suess nursery rhyme
And you were there

On the corner of heart attack & vine beats the heart of saturday night
And echo’s to the sounds of a blue valentine
As tom waits is singin’ to me the piano has been drinkin’
You see, it’s another downtown train to closing time

On the corner of heart attack & vine beats the heart of saturday night
And echo’s with the sounds of a blue valentine
As tom waits is singin’ to me the piano has been drinkin’
You see, it’s another downtown train to closing time
