​Sharp Edges

This song is by Abandon Jalopy and appears on the album Mercy (2001).

Being all alone with no one to count on makes me feel good
But sometimes when I lay awake at night
I pull the sharp edges of my life into me
And I hold them tightly
And I hold them tightly
They'll go to bed with me

And Put them to sleep for the night
Pull it all inside
Sanity is waiting

Put them to sleep for the night
Pull it all inside
Sanity is waiting

It's waiting Some man came to me and said "Son, I got a bad life ahead
And behind me I'm in the streets"
And as I walk away I heard him shout sharp edges of his life at me
And I hold them guilty
And I hold them guilty
I saved the quarters for me

And Put them to sleep for the night
Pull it all inside
Sanity is waiting

Put them to sleep for the night
Pull it all inside
Sanity is waiting

It's waiting I dream of one day having someone to tell not to
Play in the streets and show him to the world
And when I'm old and gray I'll pull those sharp edges of my life into me
And I'll hold them peacefully
Just save a plot for me

Put them to sleep for the night
Pull it all inside
Sanity is waiting

Put them to sleep for the night
Pull it all inside
Sanity is waiting It's waiting
