lyrics

We met by accident out in the gutter
A New York minute
A dirty black summer
no time to think
No time to recover
(Oh just drive)
Get in the car now, before we go under
The lower east side might start to wonder
I've got a habit and it's got my number

That's my wife
And she's gone
Her picture stays on the wall
That's my wife, and she's gone
She's gone

Smackheads on lemon drops under the covers
She was my sanctity, she was my lover
I kick the habit, I'm thinking of her
(Oh just drive)
Blisters and meltdowns and airports and thunder
Blitzed out amazement and dillated wonder
I climbed to the bottom
I learned to try again from her

That's my wife
And she's gone
Her picture stays on the wall
That's my wife, and she's gone
She's gone

Baby come
Don't come back
Don't come back
Baby, come
Don't come back
Don't come back

That's my wife
And she's gone
Her picture stays on the wall
That's my wife, and she's gone
She's gone
