- Holding out for the cruelest touch

lyrics

Yeah he’s somebody’s man.
So what?
You built up your courage all afternoon.
They couldn’t hold you back.
So what?
Let the losers sober up,
And keep drinking ‘til you get yours.

If confidence is on your side
The promised land
Is in the room you’re in tonight.
Becoming what you always were:
You flicker on and flicker out again

Yeah he’s somebody’s man.
So what?
There’s only one lion in this place for the slowest gazelle in town.
The high horses have gone.
So what?
Step outside, tap your ashes out
But don’t leave until you get yours.
Try to wait for the walls to stop
But keep drinking ‘til you get yours.
Holding out for the cruelest touch
And you’ll feel it when it’s deep
But you know it’s never deep enough.

It’s never deep enough.
Is it deep enough?
