Lyrics

It's empty tonight at the Make Out Room
all the pretty people stayed at home
The mirror ball spins across an empty floor
I know I won't see you anymore
Hey Jill, another whiskey and soda please
But this time go ahead, make it weak
Lord knows I've had enough already
No embarrassing statements
and no secrets to keep

My friends all told me to let her go
and come back into the world again
But frankly my dear, outside my door
is just a pie in the face and a liquor store
They say if you're sentimental too much
that one day you'll go blind
Well if there's a picture of me, it comes out a blur
I'm half dead you know because I'm missing her

My friends all told me to let her go
and come back into the world again
But frankly my dear, outside my door
is a pie in the face and a liquor store
