she believes in god, you believe in a bottle I believe I'll steady myself where I can she says her prayers, I prepare a confession honey, you've got to choose between two promised lands and I know this oh, it's always been this way you think that I didn't notice but just give me your now we're living in some kind of heaven anyhow please, just give me your now she slips into pews as I slip out of your bedroom, head to the kitchen, and break a few eggs in the pan you come downstairs, tell me you've quit drinking 'cause you're saving up to put a gem on her hand and I know this oh, it's always been this way you think that I didn't notice [chorus] she picks a date and her bridesmaids dresses looks like I'll be spending a day done up in blue you catch my eye as she walks down the aisle I'm reminded I was never walking towards you we both know this oh, it's always been this way I hope she doesn't notice [chorus]

Floorboards 02:33
no more lying now; I will go to sleep lock the words up in your mouth trapped behind your teeth your tongue crackles like the leaves beneath my feet your eyes are black holes they take but don't release and oh, I creak like floorboards under all the weight of you and when you walk around I mutter all that we've been through you weave lies just like the braids in schoolgirl's hair you keep them going til there's nothing else left there [chorus] I waited years just for my chance to say a word now I am thunder I will rumble 'til I'm heard [chorus]

My Man 02:13
my man left me on a sunny day my man left me; said he couldn't stay said we were going two different ways my man left me on a sunny day my man left me feeling sad and low my man left me; said he didn't know if things were going how he thought they'd go my man left me feeling sad and low and oh, I think about him all the time don't know if I should punch him or hold him tight my man my man but I guess he isn't mine my man left me, broke my heart in two my man left me, but when he finds you hope you're patient, kind, and true hope he finds what he wanted to

Get Gone 02:48
I've been in this town a few days now and it feels so dry, like a desert, like a sky that has no clouds you won't come 'round and I know why, I know why I want another drink, want want another drink wanna get gone, get gone I need another drink, need need another drink need to get gone, get gone some days I swear I can feel it there slipping down my throat like a poison; I could choke I should spit it up I refill my cup and I know why, I know why [chorus] wish I could go back, retrace my tracks look in that baby's eyes, tell her she's all right that she ain't that bad not her fault he's mad that she'll turn out fine, but I know why [chorus]

well I spent my money wisely on the lottery and booze yeah, it seemed a better gamble than another night with you and I know that you can't see, dear why I do the things I do but I'm looking for those detroit city blues there ain't no other city gonna know the things she knows no, there ain't no other city knows to keep her people close through the things that she has been through I wanna be like her those most oh, I'm looking for those detroit city blues in a state shaped like a hand that's been nailed up on the cross baby, you would understand if you heard the warning shots there is something deep inside her that is torn and tempest-tossed but we keep on singing those detroit city blues well the night falls here like clockwork but the streetlights don't turn on the only light left flickers "get your liquor here" and "pawn" but despite her lamentations she still grows and carries on and we keep on singing those detroit city blues yeah, we keep on singing those detroit city blues
