These Sad Songs

lyrics

Tragedy has always been my spark
Just a way to stay scared of the dark
National guitar in my hands
Searching for the words of a bitter man

Tragedy approaches I assume
She's listening to me from the back of the room
Try to figure out just what I've done
Needing an excuse and I don't have one

She says stop singing these sad songs
They incline me to believe that somethings wrong
Never given a thought to moving on
But it's these sad songs or me

Never held a gun
and I've never threatened anyone
I don't cheat you, you don't cheat me
what is it your words would have me be

She says stop singing these sad songs
They incline me to believe that somethings wrong
Never given a thought to moving on
But it's either these sad songs or me

Is this the last thing that I write
Will I see you come home tonight
A sad song to call my own
I guess I'm happy enough to be alone

Stop singing these sad songs
They incline me to believe that somethings wrong
Never given a thought to moving on
I guess it's these sad songs
