Dragging this Horse Around


Yes, I am going to see Florence and the Machine, thanks for asking, But if you’re not dead inside, I suggest you listen to this….

PS, totally didn’t put in the chorus cos I couldn’t be arsed, but listent to it, read it as poetry, whatevs.

Regrets collect like old friends

Here to relive your darkest moments

I can see no way, I can see no way

And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh

But I like to keep some things to myself

I like to keep my issues drawn

It’s always darkest before the dawn

I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind

I can never leave the past behind

I can see no way, I can see no way

I’m always dragging that horse around

All of these questions, such a mournful sound

Tonight I’m going to bury that horse in the ground

Because I like to keep my issues drawn

It’s always darkest before the dawn

I am done with my graceless heart

So tonight I’m going to cut it out and then restart

Cos I like to keep my issues drawn

It’s always darkest before the dawn

And it’s hard to dance with the devil on your back

Given half the chance would I take any of it it back

It’s a fine romancebut it’s left me so undone

It’s always darkest before the dawn

And I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t

So here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road

And I’m ready to suffer and I’m ready to hope

It’s a shot in the dark and right at my throat

Cause looking for heaven, found the devil in me

Looking for heaven, found the devil in me

Well what the hell I’m gonna let it happen to me

I like gin, mittens and otters, not necessarily in that order. Here's some stuff I felt like writing down when I'm not chained to a desk writing other things for a living. Please use caution when using this site; there may be sweary words, cute animals and general bullshit. Don't say I didn't fucking warn you.
