Kiss the Bottle Lyrics

by Jawbreaker

It gets loneliest at night
Down at the liquor store
Beneath the neon sky
Our moonlight

Six a.m. the floor comes alive with lice
The pan's dried up so tight
With hardened beans
We're hungry

So, I lean on you sometimes
Just to see you're still there
Your feet can't take the weight of one
Much less two, we hit concrete

How were we born into this mess?
I know I painted you a prettier picture, baby
But we were run out on a rail
Fell from the wagon to the night train

I kissed the bottle
I should've been kissing you
You wake up to an empty night
With tears for two

Cigarettes they fill the gaps
In our empty days
In our broken teeth
We're jonesing

Say mister, can you spare a dime?
Some change could make a change
Could buy some time
Some freedom

Or an ear to hear my story
It's all I've got
My fiction beats the hell out of my truth
A palm upturned burnt blue

Don't call it sunburn
You've been shaking on the job
Just one drink ahead of your past
There's a white light coming up
You draw the blinds hoping it'll pass

I kissed the bottle, I should've been kissin' you
You wake up to an empty night
With tears for two
