The Airborne Toxic Event Lyrics: Days of Wine and Poses

Unreleased
Lyrics by Mikel Jollett

Days of Wine and Poses

Oh these days of wine and poses, they are going by so fast
And you wonder why I buy you roses, or live here in the past.
This is everything I want, this is everything I want.
Just falling freely, your presence near me, your face so warm and gaunt
But the price I pay for a little mistake, like tearing your life in two
It seems meager compared to these melodies spare,
It’s selfish, I know, but it’s true
Take a bow, take a bow, take a bow, you’ve won.

You’ve won, you’ve won
Just marry me and tell me why you fired this smoking gun.
Oh marry me, I honestly think that it might be fun.
But it’s all so strange when you rearrange your life to become something else.
And then no one cares, and they fight like bears, and you end up all by yourself.

Take a bow, take a bow, take a bow, you’ve won, you’ve won, you’ve won, you’ve won.

You’ve won, you’ve won
This is all I want and more
This is all I want and more
This is all I want and more
This is all I want and more.

This is all I want and more
This is all I want and more.
