Drunk Again

Written By: Brandon Cagle

o well Im drunk again i admit it
you got me dead to rights
lately i been howlin at the moon
n shootin the stars out every night
crashin cars
gettin kicked outta bars
is what keeps me hangin on
but ill be comin home to you
just as soon as this bottles gone

yeah i was drunk when ya met me
so it should come as no surprise
i aint gonna tellya stories or shame the truth with alibis
if i wanna go out n tie one on
well thats just what im gonna do
but just as soon as this bottles gone
ill be comin home to you

im drunk again and i just cant see
why you say i aint the man you thought id be
im drunk again and cryin bout how when you bid me farewell
said if i got too drunk to find my way home
itd be just as well

now i remember when we usedta go out
n have ourselves a time
cuttin a rug n shootin pool
drinkin whiskey drinkin wine
now im out on the town
but it aint like i left you all alone
when i get home ill find you cuddled up
with a bottle of yer own

gettin drunk again just to forget
how close we usedta be when we first met
gettin drunk again so i dont haveta see
the distance between you and me
gettin drunk again
where did i go wrong
all my moneys run out and this bottles gone.

Roustabouts Lament

Written By: Brandon Cagle

Well the circus finally headin for new ground
all the freaksve packed up
n the bigtops torn down
theres noone
not a soul
in this one stoplight town
who id rather have here on this merrygoround

and the sun may not shine
skies may not be blue
out there on the road ill be dreamin of you
well theres lies in this world but ill tell you the truth
if you ever come back
ill come runnin to you

o the ringmaster steals all yer gold
dont keep you in dresses
leaves ya out in the cold
on account of that once upon a time
you were sold
just ta pay off on yer folks gamblin debts

well the dogs they do bite
cats they do hiss
wind it will howl and rain pound like a fist
i know you wanna forget
but kewpie doll recall this
i love you
run away with me
yeah theres nothin for us here
and i love you
my dear
i love you
run away with me

but you say that you aint free to go
and you say the ramblin life is the only life you know
so ill trade in my triumph
for one last ticket to the show
and im pullin up these stakes
and leavin town with you

cuz the marks they might win
shills they might lose
sheriff break trust n the clowns drown in booze
ferris wheel bust and the tigers get loose
but the show must go on the road
so im leavin with you

cuz id gladly walk blindfold cross a tightrope for you
put my head in the mouth of a lion thats true
id gladly be fired from a cannon thru rings of fire
nightly
just to be with you

well the circus finally headin for new ground
all the freaksve packed up
and the bigtops torn down
theres noone
not a soul
in this one stoplight town
who id rather have here on this merrygoround.

Wonderin Where You Are Tonight

Written By: Brandon Cagle

The storm has passed now and the stars are quiet
im wishin i was sharin this bottle
thru with walkin the floor
and im thru with cryin
but im wonderin where you are tonight

sometimes yer better off not tryin
to keep the night from fallin apart
n theres them that say yer better off runnin away
than to be the one left with a broken heart

yer faded picture still stares at me
from the shelf where i put it in the corner of my mind
and it aint all that often that i dust it off
but im wonderin where you are tonight

would it killya ta think of me
even if its only from time to time
and if you happen to see a broken whiskey bottle
would it tear out yer heart to remember when you were mine

now dont you worry about me at all
tho you left my heart burnin like a tirefire
and its too late to call
i threw the phone down the hall
but im still wonderin where you are tonight
wonderin where you are tonight.
