A. Savage - Ladies from Houston Lyrics

When the night sun stops tryin', if it dims without fightin'
And a chorus of midnight dogs flowers from the shadows
Like the ladies from Houston who walk into my house
Drink coffee and talk softly, drink wine and speak loud
Back at me
[Chorus]
Got a full ring of keys again
Now that I've
Got a full ring of keys again
Thirty years paid in mistakes
As the rent to the room
That my ghost vacates
[Verse 2]
Yeah she raised me like I was her own flesh and blood
And she came when I cried and I wasn't embarrassed
Well I knew enough Spanish to interpret a shoe
As an armed confrontation when it's quickly removed and lifted
[Chorus]
Got a full ring of keys again
I've got a full ring of keys again
Time is a feral cat's prowl
Blind and lost to the chase
Without fear or doubt
[Verse 3]
Said he's stepped in the quicksand and it's not like you think
Said he'd waited with commitment but he didn't start sinking
I said, "I'd fallen in line, and a few times in love
And I've raised my voice at folks I thought I was above, like a fool."
[Chorus]
Got a full ring of keys again
Now that I've
Got a full ring of keys again
Scratching glyphs into the glass
Of the men's room mirror
To reflect my wrath
[Verse 4]
Uncle Marty was trouble, at least that's what I heard
And now he's dead or in prison, or just gone but not missin'
But I remember the burn mark, the speedy tattoo
And the words that he chose, and the way his lips moved to make them
[Chorus]
Got a full ring of keys again
I've got a full ring of keys again
Nothing lies further from truth
Than the words from the one
Who says solid sooth
[Verse 5]
What's the purpose if there is one? For this televised demon?
But a sadness I feel when he pollutes the screen
For the beer in the fridge which has halfway been tasted
That I put to my lips so it doesn't get wasted or drank?
[Chorus]
Got a full ring of keys again
I've got a full ring of keys again
