another "Little Drop of Poison" ....Tom Waits inspierd

You thought you were born with the world by the horns
and your grip was as firm as resolve,
but she promised you things that a good woman brings
so you grasped the illusion of love.

It slips through your fingers
where her perfume lingers
and singers sing songs of delusion.
A bird in the hand, cannot understand
the two in the bush in collusion.

Worked to the bone for a word on the phone
“Can you pick up a bottle of wine?”
Don’t feel good tonight, so you just pick a fight
and she pretends that everything's fine.

It slips through your fingers
where her perfume lingers
and singers sing songs of delusion.
A bird in the hand, cannot understand
the two in the bush in collusion.

The eye of a tart looks for broken hearts
to wring a few drops of dominion,
so easy to fall, when you once had it all
but that’s just my jaded opinion.

It slips through your fingers
where her perfume lingers
and singers sing songs of delusion.
A bird in the hand, cannot understand
the two in the bush in collusion.
