lifeblood: songs: lyrics: covered for you


every time i go downtown
i think i might find you around
i take your picture just in case
anybody's seen
a girl who's had her better days
just like the last place that you stayed
where i can see you tipping back
the curtains looking for me

you say baby do you have to go away
just before the deal gets real sweet
just before my trouble finally pays off
can you cover for me
can you cover for me

i see you coming
down the hill
you smile at me
like i'm a worn out thrill
as if i have some endless well
of dignity
you cut yourself
like a high school kid
i did it once
everybody did
just to feel the emptying
of everything

oh baby just to watch it all go away
every time the deal got real sweet
every time our trouble finally paid off
we said cover for me
we said cover for me

(na na na)
(na na na)
(na na na na na na)
(na na na)
(na na na)
(na na na na na na)

(na na na)
it's two years of depravity
(na na na)
(na na na)
for every year of your recovery
(na na na)
(na na na)
and you'll lose eventually
(na na na)
(na na na)
if that's what you need
(na na na)
of all the friends
that make me sad
you're the one that i just can't have
and all the numbers that you left me
they just ring and ring
i said baby did you have to go away
just before the deal got real sweet
just before my trouble finally paid off
can't you cover for me
like i covered for you
like i covered for you
like i covered for you
(na na na)
(na na na)
(na na na na na na)
(na na na)
(na na na)
(na na na na na na)
