Stain

Posted by daleband on August 18, 2014 Lyrics | | No comments

I wiped away with washcloths 
and scrubbed with loads of bleach 
but the purple bruise of two-buck booze 
still decorates my sheets 

When you stumbled out the doorway 
and you gave that lazy wink 
I knew the buzz was you because 
I didn’t even drink 

And I can’t seem to get you off my brain 
you’re permanent and I can’t ever change 
All these thoughts I have of you remain 
And it’s all ’cause when you came you left a stain 

I thought I’d blocked the blemish 
with some pillows and a fleece 
but I tried like hell to hide the smell 
and the odor just increased 

It’s really no use hiding 
what is obvious to see 
that night you spent left quite a dent 
on my bedsheets and me 

Cause I can’t seem to get you off my brain 
you’re permanent and I can’t ever change 
All these thoughts I have of you remain 
And it’s all ’cause when you came you left a stain 

When we finish off the bottle 
can we open up champagne? 
I want to feel the bubbling of you 
running up and down my veins 
and if our stomachs tighten 
let’s not pour it down the drain 
we’ll just pour it on ourselves and let it stain 

Cause I can’t seem to get you off my brain 
you’re permanent and I can’t ever change 
All these thoughts I have of you remain 
And it’s all ’cause when you came you left a stain

Got something to say?
