lyrics

We're gonna feel bad when the sun comes up
we're gonna feel bad when the sun comes up
swollen irises ultra-violet
we're gonna have fun till we can't have fun
we're gonna have fun till we can't have fun
any more you say, it's a wonderful laugh

your sweet beautiful frown
the silver lining on a dark grey cloud
that's been following
but I won't be your light

Here's to the underdogs
they never really had much going on
but stuck around to try, stuck around to try
I'm on the back porch singing songs
you're inside and you're carrying on
and I wish I was a younger man

your sweet beautiful frown
I won't be the one, the one to drag you down
but I won't be your light
I won't be your light

The cabaret girls they're starting to dance
they're getting paid and they're making romance
for the gentlemen
the gentleman
but you and I we're the lucky ones
we never needed much to have some fun
any more you say, it's a wonderful laugh

your sweet beautiful frown
the silver lining on a dark grey cloud
I won't be the one, the one to drag you down
but I won't be your light
I won't be your light
I won't be your light
