Lyrics

Sweet Regret

Written By: Goodfellas

Well I lie here wide awake my fingers started bleedin’ at about half past two yesterday mornin’
Well I couldn't stay in time and I couldn't stay in tune with that new Taylor guitar
I had Dublin Blues playin’ all night long but I couldn't play along no matter how hard I tried
I had pictures of her all along my wall but I couldn't bring her back
No matter how hard I cried

I’m out here all alone
Just me and my sweet regret
She’ll never leave me and she’s never out of time
The poster of a rodeo well it’s tattered burned and scarred
Her lips rest on a cigarette
She’s my lonesome star

Like an empty bullet shell crashing to the dirt
Like an cold black heart of innocence
I’m tied up on a string in a world around her finger in an evil romance
I still sing those Dublin Blues when I’m all alone
And I still have her picture
But she’s never comin’ home
