Reposado

from The Kitchen Sink by Jeff Campbell

lyrics

You won't cry.
And all I wanna know is why.
It's not like I didn't try.
And you got your achy bod and your reposado. And I…
Well I sold it good, didn't I?
Think I fooled even myself this time
And now we're taking the empty bottles of reposado and lining em up just right.
Cause it's target practice tonight.

This is the part when the dice, they start to roll.
A new surprise around every turn you know
Who has their feet nailed to the floor?
Who can't just run right out the door?                                            
Who thinks it's time for one more?

Breathe a sigh.
I'm telling the truth when I lie.
And all my excuses are why
We're fine now, but after the
Umteenth bottle, then down I go.  

This is the part when the dice, they start to roll.
A new surprise around every turn you think you know.
Who has their feet nailed to the floor?
Who can't just run right out the door?

We're bearing down for a long night
But who doesn't love a sunrise?
But it's thunder now and we're tying keys to the kite.

Land sakes alive
I fall when I'm way up high.
But now I can start on the climb
