1988

Let's cut loose, survive until dawn breaks
There are things worse than death, let's hide them like a pistol
 
And drink till we're sick, of love itself, however many glasses of it
Don't you hear it? Love itself, as it goes down your throat
Let's drink till we're sick, of love itself
The numbers on the label mean nohing, purple rimmed with gold
1988
 
Even out of money, there's still something to squeeze out of you
Sell it, sell your life away, put a pistol to your head
 
And drink till you're sick, of love itself, however many glasses of it
Can't you hear it? Love itself, as it slides down your throat
Let's drink till we're sick, of love itself
My words don't mean anything, purple rimmed with gold
1988
 
Sooner or later, everything changes
I'm not happy at all
For better or for worse, this country is falling into a depression
Those numbers mean nothing, it won't affect us, we don't need them
1988
 
"But there's love!", someone will say, over and over
Oh, thank you so much, bring me some of that love, more and more!
Let's drink until we die, of love itself
I throw the bottle against the wall, it breaks in pieces, and I kiss you
 
It feels like a hangover, as I drag along my pain
A demon arrives, taking my life out like a gun
 
Thanks!
