From the recording Better Men Than You


Better Men Than You

You’re ailing heart
You threw away
Now drifting through these streets
Like a ghost on holiday
You’re done with love
It was some trick
And what you cannot trust
You surely will not miss
You gotta hear it
Better men than you were overtaken
Thrown to the hole
To live out their days
Deny at your risk the words that I’m saying
No one comes to live this life alone
You say you’re fine
You sound sincere
You’re talking like a cowboy
Who lost his horse somewhere
The ailing heart
You threw away
Sings its old refrain
You are just afraid
You gotta hear it...
