lyrics

As the floodlights are dying, I’m sitting here crying
My blood is still drying into flakes on the floor of the ring upstairs
The echoing, hollering, braying and brawling
Of the crowd is emptying out of Madison Square
The popcorn is squeaking, the janitor’s sweeping up
Handbills that promised the fight, no, the war of the century
Did I let you down when my face hit the ground?
I hadn’t even gone two lousy rounds with that wrecking machine

And it rings in my ears
You know, it rings in my ears
Like a bell, like a bomb
It still rings in my ears

They were calling his name
(Laaaaaaaaaaang)
They were calling his name.
(Laaaaaaaaaaang)
They were calling his name like they did mine yesterday.

Who could say why I lost, but I did and it’s done
Who could say why I lost my tiger eye, but I did and it’s gone.
Yeah, I did and it’s gone,
And there’s just a hole in my head
There’s a hole in my head.
He tore a hole in my head
My dear Talia, a hole.

And everyone’s gone now but you
Everyone’s gone.
Everyone left me but you,
You and your brother Paul

Everyone’s gone except your brother Paul,
They’re stumbling and staggering and carrying on
With the rest of their lives.

And everyone’s gone except your brother Paul
Now that there’s not a god damned thing left in the world that they want from me

Everyone`s gone except your brother Paul
And to top this nigh off Mick just fucking died in my locker room

And the last thing I said as I cradled his head
Was a goddamned lie
It was a goddamn lie

So even he’s gone now
Even he’s gone now, now you’re all I got
Everyone’s gone now but you
and your brother Paul
(fuck man, your brother)

Everyone`s gone except your brother Paul
And what does that say about me
If he`s my last friend

Everyone`s gone except your brother Paul
And even with one good eye I see that asshole’s been drinking again

Everyone’s gone except your brother Paul
And what gypsy’s dog did I hit with my car
To get cursed with that guy?
