GASLIGHT ANTHEM


Film Noir Lyrics

I'm all washed out by the side of the road.
Broken bones Matilda left a note and a rose.
Saying "Baby, honey child, I love you so long but you deserve much better than me"

So I'm just burning all around, all the miles on the road.
And I'm never going back, and I'm never going home.
I've been gone too long. I've been less right than wrong.
I've lost so much blood in the falling out.

And I lit a fire that wouldn't go out.
Until it consumed the walls and roof of this house.
Until all I remember was burning away.
And all I remember, you burnt it away.

See for 10 long years I've been hustling around.
Tryin' to wash the sins and sweat from my brow.
Just trying to find a better life for me and my own.
Just some rest for these tired working fingers.

But nobody never gonna tell you the way.
You gotta figure it out boys & suffer the rain.
And the fools in the night, and the heat in the day.
When all you ever really wanted was someone to understand.

And I lit a fire that wouldn't go out.
Until it consumed the walls and roof of this house.
Until all I remember was burning away.
And all I remember, you burnt it away.
Well don't you take it so hard and baby don't you cry.
Cross your hard heart and hope to die.
Don't you tell me no more lies, you lied all the time.
Don't you tell me no more lies, you lied every night.

And your sugar and spice, and everything nice.
You got Monroe hips, your poison lips and eyes.
And your sugar and spice, and everything nice.
You got open wounds in a young boy's pride.
[2x]

And I lit a fire that wouldn't go out.
Until it consumed the walls and roof of this house.
Until all I remember was burning away.
And all I had left, you burnt it away.
Well don't you take it so hard and baby don't you cry.
Cross your hard heart and hope to die.
Don't you tell me no more lies, you lied all the time.
Don't you tell me no more lies, you lied every night.
