1. Vampires


It took me by surprise when I told you I was leaving
Sometimes plans reveal themselves in drink
By the time I'm privy to the vampires I've let in
Realize I'm not sober again

Reaching for that cold familiar coffin of my dreams
Bottle that is opening up my seams
Might as well wrap my hands around the neck of my new life
Somehow, for a moment it feels right

God bless my time here in the city
Where my only friends are Jack and Johnny
When it comes to drinking sorrows, lord, you know my color's blue
Pour another round and I'll pull through

Tonight's the night I probably won't remember
Remind me when I'm dry in 24
At least there's you to write to when I'm laid out on the floor
One more year and I'll give you some more
