John Moreland - Sad Baptist Rain lyrics

Well baby lay down your pride-sprayed poems While I sit and mumble at your feet Am I a stone or a stoned kid dreaming Of a closet full of crumbled tees Young and hungry, dark blue and clumsy Dumb enough to let you go Outside the show drinking Nyquil and honey Trying to conjure up some rock and roll [Chorus:] You're the exception, dear, I'm the rule I traded love for a song like a fool I'm always drawn to the wrong thing to do And I keep proving it The sky came apart with my guilt-stricken heart Break me down, break me up We'll let freedom ring while the blacktop sings In the sad baptist rain for us [Chorus x2] The devil ain't nearly as real as he seems Your name is a number I see in my dreams Your heart is a dangerous, beautiful thing I keep losing it
