Empty Pockets And Shore Changed Love (Leger)
Empty pockets and shore changed love
I've got my health but I'm down on my luck
Holes in my stories
Holes in the glue
This town distrusts a go getter
Hates a recluse

Jugs full of comfort and blackberry lies
Garbage trucks and attic trunks
Dave Dudley and hanging dice
The clouds can change any minute
And my mood swings with the sound
Cobwebs for the forgotten
Flashlights for the found

The singer and his acting coach
Spending hours on the magic and the right wardrobe
Pancakes at four in the morning
With cheap beer on the side
I did that last thursday
Four years ago
The Golden Griddle open all day and night

Horse races and borrowed cash
Put it down on Number 7
It's done well in the past
Give me one more night on your sofa
And one more meal of gin
The sun and moon don't care where I'm going
Or if I'll ever be back again
