Ballad Of The Sad Young Men Lyrics

Sing a song

Of sad young men

Glasses

Full of rye

All the news

Is bad again

Kiss your dreams

Goodbye

All the sad young men

Sitting in the bars

Knowing neon nights

Missing all the stars

All the sad young men

Drifting

Through the town

Drinking up the night

Trying not to drown

All the sad young men

Singing in the cold

Trying to forget

That they are

Growing old

All the sad young men

Choking on their youth

Trying to be brave

Running from the truth

 

Autumm turns

The leaves to gold

Slowly dies the heart

Sad young men

Are growing old

That's

The cruelest part

All the sad young men

Seek a certain smile

Someone they can hold

For a little while

Tired little girl

Does the best she can

Trying to be gay

For a sad young man

While a grimy moon

Watches up above

All the sad young men

Play at making love

Misbegotten moon

Shine for sad young men

Let your gentle light

Guide them home again

All the sad young men
