Last Call Lovers

05:09

Lyrics

There's a tabby sleeping

On a cut-out box by the door

In a lonely tavern 

The band plays their final chord

"Hey, bartender" 

"Do you think I could get another pour?"

 

It's a losing battle 

You run and hide behind bars

It's been a long time 

Still I wonder where you are

Your love was the sun

And now it's just a falling star

 

I've been chuckin' beer bottles, honey

I've been cursing the moon

For it's last call for lovers

Down at the Broken Heart Saloon

It's last call for lovers, and baby

It's my last call for you 

 

Now I toss and turn 

And I walk this floor

Staring out the window

Hoping you'll walk through the door

Deep in my heart I know 

That I could have done more

 

I've been chuckin' beer bottles, honey

I've been cursing the moon

For it's last call for lovers

Down at the Broken Heart Saloon

It's last call for lovers, and baby

It's my last call for you 

 

I remember the good old days

And darling we've had 'em all

But now that you're gone 

I'm wishing I'd have called

I don't know why I still hang these pictures on the wall

 

I've been chuckin' beer bottles, honey

I've been cursing the moon

For it's last call for lovers

Down at the Broken Heart Saloon

It's last call for lovers, and baby

It's my last call for you 

 

It's last call for lovers, and baby

It's my last call for you
