Make Up My Mind

Make Up My Mind
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

Ninety-nine degrees and nothing but sun
There’s never a rainy day around when you need one
I drove all the way to work just to drive back home
Call in sick and sleep ’til dusk
And you ain’t made a damn thing easy
Since you ran that light on 41st and Q
The cab and chassis ‘ve never been the same, girl
And it’s clear you’ve made a wreck of this man, too

We’re both too old for slinging ultimatums
Like life’s handed us a choice
You got those bedroom eyes and those legs that stretch to Sunday
All I’ve got’s a guitar and what passes for a voice

So pour me something dark and strong
And I’ll drink it ’til I’m half-past blind
Then maybe I’ll forget why I came in here
We’ll go home and you can make up my mind

Slammin’ back a shot of Thursday comin’ on slow
Chasin’ off that ol’ Friday night quid-pro-quo
Sure, I can sit here and take it like I ain’t been took
Just keep payin’ on that tab I’ve never owed
And I ain’t had one single moment’s peace
Since you spent a night that’s gone on three years long
You’ve busted bits of me’ll never fit the way they came
But sometimes a man can only be so strong

We’re both too old for spinning out the wheels
Like life’s handed us the keys
You got those clever lies and lips that sell them sweetly
All I’ve got’s this barroom and its suicide squeeze

So pour me something dark and strong
And I’ll drink it ’til I’m half-past blind
Then maybe I’ll forget why I came in here
We’ll go home and you can make up my mind

And even though I sit here most nights
Blamin’ the weather and the throttle
The truth is you’re my poison
And the only antidote can save me
Is the worm here dancin’ in my bottle

So pour me something dark and strong
And I’ll drink it ’til I’m half-past blind
Then maybe I’ll forget why I came in here
We’ll go home and you can make up my mind
