The Party's Over

lyrics

Once I was a happy man
I lived my life in peace
In the apartment of an actress
In downtown Los Angeles
But one day she said that I must go
And follow my own star
Boys, that’s how I ended up here
Drinking in this bar

The party’s over
But I won’t turn out the lights
I’ll sit in this bar
For forty days and forty nights
I’m drinking black dog whiskey
And the band is playing dead
My heart is racing
Crazy thoughts of her still in my head

Don’t think because you’ve taken refuge
In a woman’s heart
That she won’t look and find you there
And then tear you apart
Tom Beckett’s sweetheart threw him out
And left him in the lurch
If ya ask me, he was murdered
'Fore he even reached the church

Go 'head and buy your gal a rose
Red as a Bloody Mary
I'll see you, brother, on the street
Or in the cemetery
Well, I can't say just what it is
That I came here to find
I've been struck dumb by the malice
Of that low-down woman's mind

The party’s over
But I won’t turn out the lights
I’ll sit in this bar
For forty days and forty nights
I’m drinking black dog whiskey
And the band is playing dead
My heart is racing
Crazy thoughts of her still in my head
