Lyrics

ONE TOO MANY

Drop the grip you have again on everything you’ve ever wanted
Cut off that hand, girl, if it gets in the way
Drink one last sip before your long walk, you’ve got to get started
Still surprised to be at the end again, before the light of day

ONE TOO MANY falls to be an angel
ONE TOO MANY strangers to pass me by
The ones that stop to talk are the dangers
The ones that say forever in their eyes

But could you be out there in this world all alone
Waiting for someone who never has shown
Thinking of ways that you’ve never been known
And throwing ONE TOO MANY nights away

The one who isn’t wanted is a fine supporting role for the chosen
The one who never chooses is a way to forget to live a life
Another man who forgot to make a space for you inside his vision
Another sunset ride with another wife

ONE TOO MANY falls to be an angel
ONE TOO MANY strangers to pass me by
The ones that stop to talk are the dangers
The ones that say forever in their eyes

But could you be out there in this world all alone
Waiting for someone who never has shown
Thinking of ways that you’ve never been known
And throwing ONE TOO MANY nights away

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

ONE TOO MANY falls to be an angel
ONE TOO MANY strangers to pass me by
The ones that stop to talk are the dangers
The ones that say forever in their eyes

But could you be out there in this world all alone
Waiting for someone who never has shown
Thinking of ways that you’ve never been known
And throwing ONE TOO MANY nights away

Yeah could you be out there in this world all alone
Waiting for someone who never has shown
And if you’re out there, could you please hurry home
I’m throwing ONE TOO MANY nights away
