Life for the Charm

Yelling at the Sun

Got a cast for the arm
I know you know it's broke'
Got a life for the charm I know you know is empty as the bottle you've been drinking from

Got a love for the girl
I know you know she's far out
Got a light for the long black hallway where you spoke with words we'll never know

Can you bide the time and know it's right for me?

Got a knife for the bear
Who's crowding your pillow
Got a color for your hair as natural as the suitcase sittin' in your good ole rockin' chair

Can you bide the time and know it's right for me?
Can you bide the time and know it's right for me?

Got a life for the charm I know you know is empty as the bottle you saw me drinking from
