Three Chords and a Lie
Three Chords and a LieThree Chords and a Lie by Tom Wernigg ©5/20 When you hold me in your arms no one can do me harm Yes, that’s exactly where I am meant to be Since the day we made our vows, I’ve never been in doubt I’ll be loving you just as long as you’ll love me Three chords and a lie…I say the words that I think you want to hear The truth is I would rather be anywhere but here Like down at the bar, laughing with my friends and making time I don’t want to see you cry, so I lie I can still change my tune, I want to be a better man I think I’ll start going back to church, try therapy again Find myself some brand new friends, maybe take up macramé Find my way back to your sweet lovin’ arms, no more will I stray Three chords and a lie, I say the words I think you want to hear The truth is I don’t want to change, I just want a beer Down at the bar, where they know my name, and what I like I don’t want to see you cry, so I lie Now I think I got it figured out, come on, darling, hold my hand It’s the whisky that’s been driving me away In 12 steps I can turn myself around, be reborn and make amends There’s ain’t nothing I won’t do to make you stay Three chords and a lie, I say the words I think you want to hear The truth is I would rather be drinking Everclear Down at the bar, where I got nothing to justify I don’t want to see you cry, so I lie Yeah, I don’t want to see you cry, three chords and a lie
Breaking Stones (electric version)
Breaking Stones (electric version)Breaking Stones by Tom Wernigg ©9/18 My name is Murphy, comma Michael Paul I live in a room that’s not much bigger than a goddamned hole in a wall I watch a lot of TV, eat three squares a day Write me care of the department of corrections, California, USA I Fucked up again, it’s a tired refrain I get on an elevator heading straight down, when the needle hits the vein Don’t shake your head, don’t waste your time in prayer And don’t bother caring about me, this is my cross to bear Chorus: I don’t understand, Just how hard can it be? How many times can you put me on my feet I still wind up on bended knees? I’m calling your name the only peace that I’ve known (I can’t do this alone) (these are the seeds that I’ve sewn) I’ll never get it right while I’m down here And I’m tired of breaking stones And my so-called friends…these guys are bringing my down It’s just a beer they say, but I know better, it’s a ticket to the merry-go-round Dive bars and pool halls, Do you like what you see? When you see me on the corner, just keep on walking, ‘cus I know you don’t want to be me Bang my head on the wall, maybe knock some sense Concrete walls and metal bars again, this can’t be coincidence They put me out on the street, I’m like a boomerang As soon as the chains are off my feet, they’re knocking down my door again Chorus They say one step at a time, they think that I can get clear Anyone can see they’ve good intentions, but I ain’t never getting out of here With your bleeding hearts, and your earnest charm You may mean well, but no matter what you do, it’s no better than a shot in the arm Chorus
