lyrics

It's 3 O'clock in the morning
there's a pain that wells inside
does it call you by your first name, Clementine
does it burn like a candle
does it sacrifice like wine
you let a pretty little folk song do you everytime

all my stories end in warnings
bored to death of feeling blue
all possessions end in nothing
all I ever had was you

the currency of devotion
don't spend like a nickel or dime
it buries itself in a budget of passing time
so if you loose your companion
to a debt you cannot pay
remember that your lover owes the same

all my stories end in warnings
bored to death of feeling blue
all possessions end in nothing
all I ever had was you

the universe is expanding
but here's the thing about space and time
you can glue the whole thing together
one fool at a time
