GASLIGHT ANTHEM


Blue Dahlia Lyrics

What a hard and sultry summer
Steam just slides up off them streets
You gotta stay inside and wait for the night
And then come on over and see me

'Cause there's poetry about these streets
And it slips from your skin and goes right underneath
And mama always knew I'd meet a girl like you
But me, I never believed

'Cause I've been so lonely
I can't imagine that kind of sympathy
'Cause I've been so lonely
I can't imagine that kind of sympathy

Where'd you get them scars?
How blue is your heart?
Is it sad enough to break
She said, "It's sad enough to break"

How long was your life?
Was it cold and strange like mine?
Are you man enough to lay here?
She said, "I'm man enough
My baby, come see about me"

I had a dream about you once
I could barely see your form
And I met you between the wax and the needle
In the words of my favorite song

And your black hair was like a raven
With your tan skin on the beach
And your backdrop were the auroras
And my sidekick was all this grief
And I been so low down
I been almost level with the ground

Where'd you get them scars?
How blue is your heart?
Is it sad enough to break
She said, "It's sad enough to break"

How long was your life?
Was it cold and strange like mine?
Are you man enough to lay here?
She said, "I'm man enough
My baby, come see about me"

And did they take you the carnival
To get locked up on a ride?
See me, I got caught up with the fortune tellers
And the ladies with the sleepy eyes
And it took years, my baby, just to come clean

Every street light, a reminder
And all those apologies
And the night was lonely next to me
Even the night was lonely next to me

Where'd you get them scars?
How blue is your heart?
Is it sad enough to break
She said, "It's sad enough to break"

How long was your life?
Was it cold and strange like mine?
Are you man enough to lay here?
She said, "I'm man enough
My baby, come see about me"

Come see about me
Come see about me
Come see about me
Whenever you're lonely
