Fancy Glasses

lyrics

When we first met in my mind ain’t no mystery
I can see you at the bar and you are smiling
When we first met in my mind ain’t no mystery
Now we go to bed silent and crying

You say hey man we got to work on it
But once you whispered let’s stay perfect forever
You say hey man we got to work on it
But now we just get lonely together

Now you always drink your wine from fancy glasses
But when I first met you all you drank was beer
Now you always drink your wine from fancy glasses
But it was drunk and grilled cheese at midnight our first year

Your friends call for you and say hey come out and play
My friends say well yeah sometime soon
Your friends call for you and say hey come out and play
But our first winter was just you and me and nothing to lose

When we first met in my mind ain’t no mystery
It was you in a dress me in leather pants and we were easy
When we first met in my mind ain’t no mystery
Now if you haven’t changed, maybe it’s me

Now you always drink your wine from fancy glasses
When I first met you all you drank was beer
Now you always drink your wine from fancy glasses
But it was drunk and grilled cheese at midnight our first year

about

The Bitter Poet Brooklyn, New York

The Bitter Poet's anti-folk, indie-rock, musical storytelling is darkly humorous, intense, gritty. His songs are honest to a fault, yet over-the-top and grandiose in the style of Tom Waits or Nick Cave.
Musically, his straight-ahead rock chords and carnival-like lyrics blend humor, pathos and outrage. He has been described as “Lou Reed meets William Shatner” and “The Doors meet Jack Nicholson.”
