​Charlie Ain't Home

This song is by ZZ Ward and appears on the album Til the Casket Drops (2012).

Golden honey dripping from this house
Black stilettos on a leather couch
Jeans sticking tight like glue
Soaking wet, drink it up like juice

Come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on

Lay me down on sheets of cotton
You make me feel like I could fly
Headlights on the bedposts, we ain't stopping
If you forgot, I'll tell you why
'Cause Charlie ain't home
Charlie ain't home
Charlie ain't home

Dig my fingertips into your back
Till the pictures break and the floorboards crack
On my tongue is a silver key
Swimming deep in the sinners' sea

Come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on

Lay me down on sheets of cotton
You make me feel like I could fly
Headlights on the bedposts, we ain't stopping
If you forgot, I'll tell you why
'Cause Charlie ain't home
Charlie ain't home
Charlie ain't home

Oh Charlie, Charlie
Please let that boy go darling
It wasn't his fault, it was mine
Oh Charlie, Charlie
He didn't know no better
I should have listened, you were right

Lay me down on sheets of cotton
You make me feel like I could fly
Headlights on the bedposts, we ain't stopping
If you forgot, I'll tell you why
'Cause Charlie ain't home
Charlie ain't home
Charlie ain't home
Charlie ain't home
Charlie ain't home
