Lyrics

Well it was barely past eleven when my pills kicked in
That cabernet didnt hurt my cause as I stumbled down the rue
Not even half as drunk as these strangers I pass
Stumbling in and out of bars as they smoked cigars and laughed
I dont even think anyones from here anymore
Well its pouring in sheets down on the bayou
And were dancing out in the quarter under the lamps
Red wine and codeine are coursing through our veins
And we never wanna go back home again
Its all art and war if its written about
Tell me what else could ever really last
Trepidation and devastation are all that remain
Of those things we thought wed learned from years that passed
Everything else just fades so fast
When its pouring in sheets down on the bayou
And were dancing out in the quarter under the lamps
Red wine and codeine are coursing through our veins
Dont it make you feel so helpless
Sometimes it makes you feel so lost
Your loves all I got baby
The things I thought Id never say
Are pouring from my heart like la la la la la
The things Ive forgotten are all but a few
Just a stain in the back of my mind
See I remember theres something girl
But Im never sure just what
So I just sit here looking for a sign
Well its pouring in sheets down on the bayou
And were dancing out in the quarter under the lamps
Red wine and codeine are coursing through our veins
And we never wanna go back home when
Bridge: Dont it make you feel so helpless
Sometimes it makes you feel so lost
Your loves all I got baby
The things I thought Id never say
Are pouring from my heart like la la la la la
