Lyrics

Cold Dark Places
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 12/18-20/2018

Just after midnight in the cold dark places
The kind of world where lives are wasted
Everyone knows, that anything goes
Bring your own bottle, cuz they won't be sharing
Mark your name clearly on the bag declaring
All of its' mine, here at the end of the line
Never say die, here's mud in your eye

Just after midnight in the cold dark places
Its' just a dream that love erases
All of your pain, as quick as champagne
Its' just as well that we keep believing
In the end it'll all break even
Cuz, its' harder to love, when you're holding a grudge
Let it all go, watch his nose grow

----Chorus ---
Reaching out, hand to mouth, like a kid grabs for Kool-Aid
Teach me love, give me hope, show me the way
Deny the blame, left with shame, every day's April fool's day
Don't break my heart, take my hand , lead me away
-----------------

Just after midnight in the cold dark places
Dirty hands and dirty faces
And catch 22, for the red, white and blue
There was a time when the grass was greener
God on your side, the American dreamer
But what can you say, so late in the day
A noun and a verb, the good old "F" word

-Repeat Chorus-
