I fell for the girl in the record store before my purchase was final
She had my heart skipping and my head was spinning as if it was vinyl

But heightened expectations always makes rejection such a tasty pill
Oh well, boy oh boy I’m thrilled

I thought I heard a co-worker call her by a name like Ann or Heather
Sure wish I was cool as Apollo Creed, Action Jackson, or Carl Weathers

Head back to Chicago since Milwaukee is an even bigger chill
Oh well, boy oh boy I’m thrilled

Now I’m thinking and I’m thinking until there was nothing left for me to thunk
Hey there, Lincoln, you’ve been drinking how come you’re not even remotely drunk

And he said:
“I’ve been at the bar and I should’ve stayed there instead
Of going to some theater where I got this sharp pain in my head”
Hey, hey, hey

I hop into my shit car and chew up the murderous miles alone
And curse some faceless corporation since there’s never ringing from my phone

Get back to the apartment only to find nothing but unpaid bills
Oh well, boy oh boy I’m thrilled
Boy oh boy I’m thrilled


from No Need To Beg, released April 14, 2015
