The Horse On Your Shoulder Patch

from Fix It If You Hate It by The Riffbrokers




I'm always from somewhere else
And lately my past don’t match
The horse on your shoulder patch
I’m still the same old kid
That left all those feelings alone
When half the world revolved around me
Now the other half don't

All those harmless lies i told myself
Have now come back to haunt me somewhere else

I sat on my favorite stool
She fell right into my lap
Singing her siren song
We talked about how long
I left all those offers alone
When half the birds that flew around me
Where have the other half flown

Rpt chorus
Come back haunt me somewhere else 2x

An aching man tires so easily
And desire decides what his disease will be
When your ship is sinkin’ on the sea of memory
There’s only timepieces glowing in the dark
Time pieces glowing in the dark


I stayed in this bed til noon
To Get the rest to help you move
The strength has left my words
The empty handed cure
Of leave those belongings alone, ‘cos
Half the world’s already longing
To get the other half home.

Chorus --outro.
