The Ballad

This song is by The Saints and appears on the album The Monkey Puzzle (1981).

Send someone out to get me in
I think it's starting to rain
Don't be rough
Don't ask too many questions of me
I don't think I can stand
It's very late in the evening
And I see the sun refuses to shine
And if you believe everything that you've said to me
Why don't you understand

And I say to myself
This world ain't doing me much good
I've lost my reasons
I stand out in the falling rain

I've been ten days in overdrive
I crawl the nearest wall
I don't know where it is I'm going to
Or where I've just come from
One more drink might make me feel better
It is a friend when you are down
But one more drink will only bring me closer to
What it is I'm running from
