Letra A Penny For The Band

Another Shirley Temple
Another Caine and Able
There's nothing out the window
And nothing on the table

This life is like a sad list
Strong across the Nation
If I miss you at the soundcheck
I'll see you at the station

There's a beast inside of me
And he's not bad company
But he speaks in tongues I can never understand
He says it's one more show and a penny for the band

Keep everybody dancing
Keep everybody spending
I know I am not a good man
But I can keep pretending

I made it in a doorway
Your dress is like a dark vale
But I'm not going your way
I'm going back to heartache

With a bottle of Burgundy
Where she waits on the balcony
With a northern wish and a daisy in her hand
To send me all her love and a penny for the band

There's a beast inside of me
And I miss my family
All these pages and these stages made of sand
Still, it's one more show and a penny for the band
One more show and a penny for the band
