Down at the Bar

© Written by Lang Termes

Down at the bar
He sits down with his guitar
Thinks about the ladies and the nights
Closing one red eye
Spittin’ at the sky
Thinks about the one he loves
And the one he can’t forget
Sings of hope and dreams
As cocktails stream
As time slowly stumbles out the door
There’s a lost highway
Where the men all play
Who thought they had a
home in the stars

chorus:
Cuz you’re teasing the lion
Caressing the siren
Toasting the sober afternoon
While collecting insurance
Relyin on serpents
Polish off the helmet to your doom
To your doom doom doom yaha
La de da boom bah de
Bah da la de day
Well I say la de la do dum…

Well her smile is the sun
Don’t forget where she’s from
Her feet burn the tar right from the street “Well alas” she once said “My friends they’re all dead”
Wax wings drippin from the stars
chorus:
So play your best
Through this sticky mess
And hope that’s a light in your eyes
Cuz a tear it may be
Just a fly on TV
Wax wings drippin from the stars
Cuz you’re teasin’ the lions
Caressing the siren
Toasting the sober afternoon
While collecting insurance
Relyin on them serpents
Polish off the helmet to your doom
To your doom doom doom yaha
La de da boom bah de
Bah da la de day
Well I say la de la do dum…..
Down at the bar
I’ll sit down with my guitar
Think about the ladies and the nights
Yah, close one red eye
Well I’ll be spittin at the sky
Thinking about the one I love
