Recorded on our two-day stint in Marigny Studios in NOLA.


Eyes fresh from a yawn at dawn

Thin sweat on the lawn - hot sun.

Feel like I’m coastin I don’t even own a skateboard.

Won a scratch off I didn’t even pay for.

Waitress said that she comp’d my meal.

Gave me her address, said come and chill.

I’m coolin, she’s on fire – opposites attract.

She’s smoking a blunt and droppin’ ice in my glass

Crown Royal and ash spill onto my jeans

Is she wiping it off, or rubbing it in?

Sweet Jesus! Look up – You don’t need to see this.

Drunk last night – this morning I’m leavin'

It’s alright

Say you’re mine

We can talk

But it ain’t right

It’s alright
Say you’re mine
Just say you’re mine.

This morning I left.
Last night I was drunk.

Crown Royal on ice - She’s smoking a blunt.
Got down to the roach – I drank til it was ice.

I keep treating her wrong – she keep loving me right
Last night – I sat at a table for two.

The waitress walked up and I thought it was you.

I was looking for you!
But you never showed.

She was flirting with me and adjusting her clothes.

Smooth and composed – the restaurant closed.

We got up and left – she led me up to her house.

Hot sun on the lawn: thin sweat.

Past dawn, give a yawn, eyes fresh.

It’s alright

Say you’re mine

We can talk

But it ain’t right

It’s alright
Say you’re mine
Just say you’re mine.
