The Only Thing

This song is by The Hold Steady and appears on the album Teeth Dreams (2014).

Original video
Once you cut her loose
I knew that she would leave
For a while I couldn't breathe
I couldn't even breathe

Sure she's still with you
But first she was with me
What tangled webs we weave
She said some things I don't believe

She's sleeping at a storage space by the airport
The only thing she talks about is TV
The only thing that tethers us together

Is the thing that most matters at the end of the night
Ashes to ashes and dust in the spotlight
Flying all around like a fist in a fight
Tired of always feeling frustrated

This town was so much fun
When there weren't so much police
We didn't have to watch our speed

First she's down in Texas
Then she went back to Tennessee
What tangled webs we weave
For a while I couldn't breathe
I couldn't even breathe

She's sleeping at a storage space by the airport
The only thing she talks about is TV
The only thing that tethers us together
Are these dreams

Last night her teeth were in my dreams
In my dreams

It's the thing that most matters at the end of the night
Ashes to ashes and dust in the spotlight
Floating all around like a nurse in the night
Tired of always feeling frustrated

She's been senseless
She's been sad
It got bad around March or April then I thought it got better
She's been wasted
She's been honest
She's got a necklace, it looks pretty expensive
I'd like to know where she got it

Sure she's still with you
But first she was with me
I've been trying to get in touch with her
Last night her teeth were in my dreams

She's sleeping at a storage space by the airport
The only thing she talks about is TV
The only thing that tethers us together
Are these dreams

Last night her teeth were in my dreams
Last night her teeth were in my dreams
Last night her teeth were in my dreams
