​Alphabet On The Manhole

This song is by Carissa's Wierd and appears on the album Ugly But Honest (1999).

Its 'cause your out of sight
Shit, this makes no sense
She wants to tell me real bad
She drove her home
Though you'll never know
You'll never know
She wants an explanation
She wants to tell you that
Didn't know what had made me run for
Don't think there is one
She wants an explanation
She wants to know what went wrong
Didn't know what had made me run for
Really don't think there is one
She wants an explanation
Didn't know what had made me run for
She wants an explanation
Wonder if I'll try to remember
I hope this makes you cry
I hope this makes you sad
This whiskey's just as dry as I am
She'd look more beautiful if she'd cried
I just want to lie down
How would I know she would break down
If I get a map and follow down
And alphabet written on the manhole
Smiling there it means I finally
Hold you head high
Slip into the mood of our lie
I finally hold your head high
So we'll just give up
And we'll keep on going over
Learn to keep your mouth shut
Regret if we find the enemy hands
Never fights with me
But all these ghosts never leave me alone
Give everyone a call
Tell them we hope to see them soon
Give everyone who's dead a call
Tell them you think you'll be home soon
Try not to sleep and scare these self affirming notions
Try not to think and scare these self affirming thoughts
