lyrics

You showed up in October
Still thinkin’ it’s July
Then you sobered up
And learned that you had missed a lot of living
And time will not forgive you
So baby, why should I?
Yai, dai, dai, dai why should I?

You called me a thief
With a heart full of lies
Then one day you saw each lie
Was just another night I tried to save you
Still you say you hate me
Oh why did I try?
Oh my G-d, why’d I try?

Down in a bottle
All you’ve got’s yourself and a foggy view
You scream from in your cellar
Wond’rin why no knights come and save you

Well I ain’t no knight
I’m just a boy in jeans
But I’ll throw you on my shoulder
We’ll quite this crazy scene while we can
And I’ll be the man
Who loves you much more
Mmm more than them.

Down in a bottle
All you’ve got’s yourself and a foggy view
You scream from in your cellar
Wond’rin why no knights come and save you

Well, come next October
You’ll still think it’s last July
Claiming that you’re cured
And sure that you had missed a lot of living
G-d, I’ll be so willing
Guess I’m still a fool
Oh, I’m a fool of a knight
