Tonight I'll Take What I Can Get

This song is by Dashboard Confessional and appears on the album The Shade Of Poison Trees (2007).

I've got my eye on top shelf liquor
With taste so smooth it hits you quicker
But you've only got the well

And I've got an eye for top tier women
With legs so long they go straight to heaven
But this old bunch looks like hell
But tonight I'll take what I can get

I'd like to hear a great musician
With strange ideas and grand ambition
But this guy, he's got trouble with chords

And I'd like to leave this game a winner
Head held high, the luck of beginners
But this old losers crawling out on all fours
But tonight I'll take what I can get

Well, this drink will do and, girl, you look alright
And this band is playing like hell tonight
These dice are loaded and, man, I am too
I might be losing but I'm leaving soon

With the prettiest girl to enter this dump
She drank all of the whiskey but she left me the rum
And tonight I'll take what I can get

I've got my sights on brand new beginnings
Brand new starts make saints of sinners
But I'm doomed to live in my past

Live nude girls says the sign out front
But old dead dreams are dancing in front
Of old dead dreamers with washed up luck
Selling love for cash
Well tonight I'll take what I can get

This old story gets stale and dry
No matter how I try and try
To spin this fable, fresh and new

You strung me along like a tease on prom night
Getting me loose but leaving me uptight
Please tell me that some of that love was true
Tonight I'll take what I can get

Well, this drink will do and, girl, you look alright
And this band is playing like hell tonight
These dice are loaded and, man, I am too
I might be losing but I'm leaving soon

With the prettiest girl to enter this dump
She drank all of the whiskey but she left me the rum
And tonight I'll take what I can get
