The Hold Steady

The Only Thing Songtext
Once you were close
I knew that you would leave
For a while I couldn't breathe
I couldn't even breathe

Sure she's still with you,
But first she was with me.
What tangled webs we weave!
She said some things I don't believe

Sleeping at a storage space by the airport
I think she talks about T.V.
I think that sutures us together

It's the thing that most matters at the end of the night
Ashes to ashes and dust in the spotlight
Flying all around like a fist in a fight
Tired of always feeling frustrated

This town was so much fun
When there weren't so much police
We didn't have to watch our speed

First she's down in Texas
Then she went back to Tennessee
What tangled webs we weave
She said some things I don't believe

Sleeping at a storage space by the airport
I think she talks about is T.V.
The only thing that sutures us together
All these dreams

I start to see through my dreams
In my dreams

And the thing that most matters at the end of the night
Ashes to ashes and dust in the spotlight
Floating all around like a nurse in the night
Tired of always feeling frustrated

She's been senseless
She's been sad
Got bad around March or April when I thought it got better
She's been wasted, she's been honest
She's got a necklace, it looks pretty expensive
I'd like to know where she got it

Sure she's still with you
But first she was with me
Man, I've been trying to get in touch with her
Last night her teeth were in my dreams

She's sleeping at a storage space by the airport
One thing she talks about is T.V.
The only thing that sutures us together
Are these dreams

Last night her teeth were in my dreams
