unreleased track from Conor.

[C]                                  [G]
Heís my friend but heís no friend to me 
[C]                                  [G]
Ask him why, heíll tell you casually
[F]
Washed up, bitter, broken, busted
[G]
Backstabbed everyone he trusted 
[C]                              [F]
Says he sees what no one else can see
[G]
And if I had half his guts Iíd want it
[F]
To chase that fatalistic comet
[C]                              [F]
Die young in the dark; thatís poetry
[G]                                  [C]
But it was not for me, it was not to be


Heís always sad but Iíve never seen him cry

When he comes to, sure heíll apologise 

Find his car, asses the damage

Still drunk but he likes the challenge

Hold on to his mind just like a kite

But a good strong win can keep you honest

Fill you with some common knowledge

Things when we were young we never tried

Just figured we had time with such a long life


Money clips Alligator shoes 

One more dance heís in that champagne room

She moves like a chocolate fountain 

Pouring, spilling all around him

Makes him wonder what else she can do

How bitter sweet is loves illusion

Feelings that can not be proven

Trust me youíll see my aim is true

Iíve done this all for you, Iíve suffered long for you


So many times heís tried to play it straight

Worked and worked until his body ached

But a brand new life can lose its lustre

Troubles tend to find each other

Call it luck or you can call it fate

But either way itís how it happens

Not the way that you imagined

Or go out with a bang like Hemmingway 

Some will say youíre brave

Some will say you ainít
