butch walker – atlanta (demo) lyrics

Loading...

born from hippies back in sixty nine
i was bored by 1992
i walked into a recruitment office a year before that
they said, “son, we’ve been waiting for you”

discharged from the gulf war the very same year
i came home with a carton or two
of cigarettes and mix tapes and bullets from a gun
that my dead best friend never did use

oh atlanta, please need me like i needed you
let your sweaty embrace open wide
’cause atlanta, i’m falling like most people do
and i need all your ground to survive

wasted and downtrodden, only in vain
i cried myself blind at the sight
of the old shopping center where we used to ride
now condos as sterile as i

so i bought me an old air stream for three thousand bucks
from a drug dealer i used to owe
and i thought to myself as i slept off a high
the irony is starting to show

oh atlanta, please need me like i needed you
let your sweaty embrace open wide
’cause atlanta, i’m falling like some people do
and i need all your ground to survive

drove out to asheville ’cause that’s where you were
where you married into money and pills
and i wanted so bad to be good with you now
the fact is that you never will

’cause some become lovers because of the s-x
and some you know, they just become friends
in our case i just became bad at it all
i never got good at it again

oh atlanta, please need me like i needed you
let your sweaty embrace open wide
’cause atlanta, i’m suffocating like some people do
and i need all your air to survive
