Goodnight Elisabeth

Counting Crows

I was wasted in the afternoon
Waiting on a train
I woke up in pieces and elisabeth
Had disappeared again

I wish you were inside of me
I hope that you're ok
I hope you're resting quietly
I just wanted to say

Goodnight elisabeth
We couldn't all be cowboys
So some of us are clowns
And some of us are dancers on the midway

We roam from town to town
I hope that everybody
Can find a little flame me, I say my prayers
Then I just light myself on fire

And I walk out on the wire once again
And I say
Goodnight elisabeth
I will wait for you in Baton Rouge

I'll miss you down in New Orleans
I'll wait for you
While she slips in something comfortable
And I'll miss you

When I'm slipping in between
If you wrap yourself in daffodils
I will wrap myself in pain
And if you're the queen of California

Baby I am the king of the rain
And I say
Goodnight elisabeth

Now, won't you fall down on me now
Won't you fall down on me now
Come, come fall down on me now
Won't you fall down on me

'Cause I'm all alone
You ain't coming home
You just settle down, down, down, in to bone
Yeah I said I'm all alone
You ain't coming home
We just settle down, down, down, in to bone
