A Drunk

from The Bollands by The Bollands



A Drunk
All the world’s fighting but I’m not complaining
It’s been that way since I moved into my shelter
And people walk past me they hear my sweet songs of peace

The blanket, the bottle for some inspiration
My hat’s down for lovers, I sing for donations
And you are so pretty, I wish I was younger in life
Time lies
Love was my only vice
Here with my load
I wait for you to come home
Nowhere to go
Here lies my home
Oh I have seen people living like angels
But she barely loved me like I was a fable
The colours of you keep on passing me by
So children you listen, I’ll sing you an old song
An old man, a poet, a two string believer
Although she has left me I’m sure she will return
So I will be waiting keep praying and staying here
Singing sweet songs for lovers of bottles,
Some of my soul is taken as you walk by
