Dessa: Oye cierra la puerta / la luche esta afuera / Puede esperar una noche mas / Baila antes de que te vas / Vale baila antes de que te vas.
Let’s douse the fire with our sweat / don’t get tired on me yet / you can rest when you’re dead / all hands to the deck / let’s make this send off go correct / Toast to the end of the world / ‘sposed to be soon now for sure / So kiss the bottle spin the girl / I forgot but reconfirm that life can be fine if you make sacred / maybe it’s a sermon a prayer / a folded note beneath my chair / but ready to go? / Never gonna know from over there / I’m sick of the sound of my voice / kickin around in this noise one of the boys says / I don’t know what you got but baby it looks bad / I don’t know what you got / but baby it looks bad Hook: If there’s a damsel in this dress / she’s too far gone to save / out of time / And it don’t get better baby / you can’t talk me down from this decline / you haven’t got a chance / But you can ask me to dance / you could ask me to dance
ask me to, ask me to dance / You could ask me to dance.
I need a drink a doctor a DJ / a shrink a locksmith a replay / to clean it up / seven second delay / or I’ll never get any radio play / Like pass on the right in a shiftstick / pass you a mic fulla lipstick / flash you a smile before I rip shit / this business’ll kill us / hope you’ve got other interests / Hold hands til the ship goes down / slow dance til the band gets drown / romance had it in the past / but I couldn’t make it last / so you best check lost and found / I’ve been here before / I know where it goes it goes down / So lost my mind my faith / found my voice my way / lost some friends some fights / found that that’s alright cause a little bit of melancholy / never really did hurt anybody / Even if it is a sickness / I’m oddly convinced at least it’s honest / When life gets so tragicomic / a mattress with no sheets on it / the fact is you have it / the task is to want it
I’ve been here before / I don’t know what you’ve got / I know where it goes / it goes down.
