“Between The Bars”: Promises you'll only make...

Оригинал песни by Elliott Smith (1969-2003)

Версия Мадлен Перо (Мadeleine Peyroux)

Drink up, baby, stay up all night
Things you could do you won't but you might
The potential you'll be you'll never see
Promises you'll only make

Drink up with me now and forget all about
Pressure of days do what I say
And I'll make you okay and drive them away
Images stuck in your head

People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still...

Drink up, baby, look at the stars.
And I'll kiss you again between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there with your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught

Drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
And keep you apart deep in my heart
Separate from the rest where I like you the best
Keep the things you forgot...

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still...
