From the album The Lucky Country
Take Me Out
Take me out tonight; take me anywhere you want,
I’m too scared to be alone.
The lights are brighter than I’ve ever seen before,
And I feel like I’m knocking at death’s door.
Because that pretty girl I used to hang my heartstrings on,
She’s gone and left me, any port in a storm.
The way girls do, when they want to hurt someone,
When they want to hurt someone.
Take me out tonight, somewhere dark and rough and loud
Where the band plays country music all night long.
And the local boys are wired; they’re looking for a fight,
I want to hurt somewhere not on the inside.
And if we’re lucky, we’ll get out with our lives,
And take the backstreets, coz we’re too drunk to drive.
The way boys do, when they want to live sometimes,
When they want to feel alive.
Take me out tonight.
