Dying on the vine

lyrics

Broken jaw, blackened eye
And the nurses know my name
Fell in tonight from a little fight
My troubles are here again

Before the nights became my days
We had lovers, brothers, mothers and fame
We loved the lights but how can I,
Be your boy again?

Absolutely fine. This’ll be the last time
Just dying on the vine. Dying on the vine

Packed out ward you’ll hear the call
Of a sinner pleading like a saint
I know what you’re used to
But I’m not who I used to be
But I’m here again

Absolutely fine. This’ll be the last time
Just dying on the vine. Dying on the vine
