​It Will Never Be This Way Again

This song is by Simon Joyner and appears on the album The Lousy Dance (1999).

The gospel dogs are wailing now that the sun has gone
And black clouds chase chattering birds over the horizon
The streets are clean and dry but for the garbage and the rain
And it will never be this way again

Time doesn't move yet everybody feels they're chased
By the ghosts who come unglued in the portraits we misplace
Everyone gets wasted by the pretty poisons in their brain
And we will never be this happy again

We will never be this happy again
The clock puts his face down in his hands and then
Cries as the sun gets swallowed by the ocean
And it will never be this way again

The lonely boarder complains of being buried in his bed
The fortune teller nods and smiles as she unravels him some thread
She says why don't you go find yourself somewhere else that you can hang
Cause you will never be this lucky again

If you're blessed with concrete courage then glory is a birthright
So choose something to defeat that will not go and throw the fight
The only way to rise again is to go and get yourself slain
But it will never be that easy again

It will never be that easy again
The clock puts his face down in his hands and then
Cries as the sun gets swallowed by the ocean
And it will never be that easy again
It will never be this way again
