Jackie And Wilson Lyrics
So tired trying to see from out the red in my eyes.
No better version of me I could pretend to be tonight.
So deep in the swill with the most familiar of swine,
For reasons raptured and divine.

She blows out of nowhere, roman candle of the wild
Laughing away through my feeble disguise.
No other version of me I would pretend to be tonight,
'Cause Lord she found me just in time.

'Cause with my mid-youth crisis all said and done
I need to be youthfully felt,
'Cause God I never felt the young.
She's gonna save me, call me baby,
Run her hands through my hair.
She'll know me crazy, soothe me daily,
And she wouldn't care.
We'll steal her Lexus, be detectives,
Ride round pickin' up clues.
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson,
Raise 'em on rhythm and blues.

Lord it'd be great to find a place we could escape sometime.
Me and my Isis growing black irises in the sunshine.
Every version of me dead and buried in the yard outside,
Sit back and watch the world go by.

Happy to lie back, watch it burn and rust.
We tried the world, good god it wasn't for us.
She's gonna save me, call me baby,
Run her hands through my hair.
She'll know me crazy, soothe me daily,
And she wouldn't care.

We'll steal her Lexus, be detectives,
Ride round pickin' up clues.
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson,
Raise em on rhythm and blues.

Cut clean from the dream at night with my mind reset,
Looking up from the cigarette, she's already left.
Start digging up the yard for what's left of me in our little vignette.
One episode is coming next.

She's gonna save me, call me baby,
Run her hands through my hair.
She'll know me crazy, soothe me daily,
And she wouldn't care.
We'll steal her Lexus, be detectives,
Ride around pickin' up clues.
We'll name our children Jackie and Wilson,
Raise em on rhythm and blues.
