lyrics

My pick walked across the doomed guitar
I heard yelling coming from the front lawn
My songs had come to life
Drunk husbands, cheating wives
Every cliche of mine close to my door

I wish I would have written happy songs
Lines about how happy our times are
Memories are knockin' at the door
Curse the melodies from the doomed guitar!

I'm upstairs, they are slowly com in' round
Spillin' wine, doing lines in my house
I'm working on a song that's so happy, they'll be gone
I'm gonna need a phrase to rhyme with peace of mind

I wish I would have written happy songs
Lines about how happy our times are
Memories are knockin' at the door
Curse the melodies from the doomed guitar!
