Lyrics

I taste you on my lips and smell you on my skin
I pass out on the floor wake up and do it all again
Let's take another ride just give me one more kiss
And stain another day with a list of broken promises

Eyes roll back in my head
Say goodbye to home and hello my friend

Maybe I should do it again
You're underneath my skin with you fingers digging in
I'll take a ride promise it won't end
Here we go again you're a bastard for a friend

You're burning like a star I'm looking like a mess
These days are so long I can't get you off my chest
Let's take another ride and taste another kiss
And add another day to my list of broken promises


Eyes roll back in my head
Say goodbye to home and hello my friend

Maybe I should do it again
You're underneath my skin with you fingers digging in
I'll take a ride promise it won't end
Here we go again you're a bastard for a friend

Cigarettes and coffee stains
Swollen mouth hang from window panes
Whiskey breath forgotten days
I can't look back and I'm not okay

Maybe I should do it again
You're underneath my skin with you fingers digging in
I'll take a ride promise it won't end
Here we go again you're a bastard for a friend
