Last Dance Rodeo


Lyrics & Info

Tabs

Performances (55)

Your lungs fill up with concrete 
Her voice is all you can hear 
Red lips and a screwdriver 
Wrapped around some mink clad queer 
And you know that she's no diamond 
In this damn jukebox hell 
Cause only fools gold fools fools 
In two-bit hotels 
But she's cooler than all that 
A real high class cat 
Queen of the last dance rodeo

Under the gas lamp the air is thick and velvetine 
Your bones fill with hunger 
Your heart fills with longing 
You're no longer human 
You're an insatiable hole 
You wanna bury your face forever in the navel of her soul 
Cause you know

All you need is a heart to call home 
All you need is a heart to call home - that's all

Lightbulbs and nylons 
And plastic chandeliers 
Objects are only objects 
They can't feel when you're near 
But tangerine lips & lily white breasts 
These things are eternal 
Inside them humanity rests 
Her skin is like a seashell 
You listen to her soul 
Like an old time radio show

Cause under the gas lamp the air is thick and velvetine 
Your bones fill with hunger 
Your heart fills with longing 
You're no longer human 
You're an insatiable hole 
You wanna bury your face forever in the navel of her soul 
Cause you know

All you need is a heart to call home 
All you need is a heart to call home - that's all

Don't wander too far 
My one constant star 
Darkness exists 
except where you are 
My feet are filled with wandering 
They follow your own 
Cause everyhwere you are feels like home

So search all you miners 
You hunters of dreams 
Look in the alleyways 
For what you know is not what it seems 
And feign all you maidens 
But don't resist too long 
Lest you look behind you 
And see your own shadow is gone

Don't you know? 
It's the last rodeo 
You gotta find yourself a cowboy 
Or someone to keep you warm when it's cold

Cause under the gas lamp the air is thick and velvetine 
Your bones fill with hunger 
Your heart fills with longing 
You're no longer human 
You're an insatiable hole 
You wanna bury your face forever in the navel of her soul 
Cause you know 
All you need is a heart to call home 
All you need is a heart to call home - that's all
