  1. Bad Parts

Lyrics

I’m sickened by age
The confusion of my ways
I hold you with a stranger’s hands most days

Used to think I was bound for glory
But these days it’s a different story
Can’t even find the mind to turn the page

So wait awhile, I’ll come around
Like some forgotten friend
Hard up and too far down

Wearing out this tired engine
A used car with bad parts that weren’t mentioned
You drove off the lot before you found out

I can’t stay inside
I’m going out tonight
Let those Broadway lights burn stars in my eyes
Cause these bad parts are wearing thin
It feels like the walls are closing in
I don’t know where to begin
But I can’t stay inside
I’m going out tonight

I walk up the downtown streets
With shifty eyes and shuffling feet
Ducking round the neon lights unseen

To find some hollow hole to dwell
And dig myself halfway to hell
Climb out tomorrow and start clean

I can’t stay inside
I’m going out tonight
Let those Broadway lights burn stars in my eyes
Cause these bad parts are wearing thin
It feels like the walls are closing in
I don’t know where to begin
But I can’t stay inside
I’m going out tonight

There’s doubts that cloud our nights
When you can’t stand another fight
And I can’t be the man to make it right
So just let me go

So you can turn off all the lights
I might not make it back tonight
I’m gonna polish off these parts until they shine
Cause all the sorrow I’ve known
Got its hands around my throat
And it won’t let go
So I can’t stay inside
I’m going out tonight
