    Between the Bars | Elliott Smith

    Drink up baby, stay up all night
    With the things you could do, you won’t but you might
    The potential you’ll be that you’ll nev
    er see
    The promises you’ll o
    nly make

    Drink up with me now and forget a
    ll about
    The pressure of days, do wh
    at I say
    And I’ll make you okay, and drive
    them away
    The images stuck in
    your head

    People you’ve been befo
    re that you 
    Don’t want
    around anymore
    That push and shove and won’t
    bend to your will
    ll keep them still

    Drink up, baby
    , look at the stars
    I’ll kiss you ag
    ain, between the bars
    Where I’m seeing you there, wit
    h your hands in the air
    ng to finally be caught

    Drink up one more time
    and I’ll make you mine
    Keep yo
    u apart, deep in my heart
    separate from the rest,
    where I like you the best
    And k
    eep the things you forgot

    People yo
    u’ve been before that you
    Don’t want around anymore 
    That push and sho
    ve and won’t bend to your will
    I’ll keep them still
