till we earned a holiday lyrics – anniversary

you’re standing off the white church and you’re pitching me three words
it yells a name falling off of – off my list of names
match in the gas tank boom boom! (x2)
match in the gas tank boom boom! (x2)
those crashing lights, life is just like that – it’s easy to forget
when we make plans, and for the second i hit cold as the dirt black night grows close

who has been painting my roses red?
i have nothing to show for you
i have nothing to show for you
i never wanted to play the fool for you

match in the gas tank boom boom! (x2)
match in the gas tank boom boom! (x2)

the dead come out – the beautiful ones are chosen
to dance and shout – terrified and holding
onto the one and only thing they ever had
a heart that’s not dead but is dying in their hands

why don’t you – you never get tan?
you try and try but you just don’t
your crying eyes they start to bleed
how come i can’t get no…
why don’t you – you never get tan?
you try and try but you just don’t
your crying eyes they start to bleed
how come i can’t get no sleep?

your smile grew thin as your family talked
arrived singing just a holiday song
that didn’t stop until you drank too much
how come i’m so out of…

i have nothing to show for you
i have nothing to show for you
i never wanted to play the fool for you
