The Mulligan Brothers – Lay Here Lyrics

The Mulligan Brothers Lay Here Lyrics

And I could barely talk to tell you just how pretty you were
But you were as pretty as a preachers wife on Sunday
And I was useless like a church bell on a Friday night
And I felt like a tragedy all dressed in dirty clothes
When you walked out before I could say

How when you stopped in
And the world stopped spinning
I gotta let you know
Just how I’ve become an artist
At how things fall apart
It′s the only thing I know

Won’t you just stay here
We can just stay here
We can just stay here
Won’t you just stay here

Spent the whole next night on the telephone
We were both alone and waiting on a change
And I remember I felt as suave as a prom date
15 minutes late in a rented suit and his mothers car
The next night was a Monday and you came over to my house
We hardly talked about anything, but it never got quiet until we
Kissed our first of many and the clock hands took reprieve
From the round the clock labor of their day to day

′Cause when you stopped in
And the world stopped spinning
I′ve gotta let you know
That I know it will I don’t know when that time will matter again
But I don′t want to let you go

Won’t you just stay here
Won′t you just stay here
We can just lay here
We can just lay here

I was thinking I’d swing by sometime around midnight
Turn my headlights off when I get near
Let′s say you and me, we get the hell out of this town
‘Cause we’re the only thing that ever happened here
I′ve got 50 dollars and if we ride with the windows down
And I screen my smokes I think we′ll make it into Georgia
And improvise from there
And everybody knows from here
That you can’t go to hell without passing through Atlanta first
I′ll find a dead end job and
Try to write a dead end song
Just thoughtless enough to make the radio
And we’ll drink wine like water
As if we had a sorrow to drown
If that don′t work it’s alright, baby
We can just stay here
We can just stay here

Because when you stopped in
And the world stopped spinning
I gotta let you know
Just how I′ve become an artist
At how things fall apart
It’s the only thing I know

Won’t you just stay here
We can just stay here
We can just lay here
We can just lay here
We can just stay here
We can just stay here oh
We can get away dear oh
We can just lay here

I remember I was singing about September
When you walked across the boardwalk to that smoky bar
