Great Expectations Lyrics
Performed by The Gaslight Anthem

Mary, this station is playing every sad song
I remember like we were alive
And I heard Sunday morn' from inside of these walls,
In this prison cell where we spent those nights.
And they burned up the diner where I always used to find her,
Licking young boys blood from her claws.
And I learned about the blues from this kitten that I knew,
Her hair was raven, and her heart was like a tomb, my heart is like a wound.

And I saw taillights last night in a dream about my first wife
Everybody leaves and I'd expect as much from you.
I saw taillights last night in a dream about my old life,
Everybody leaves so why, why wouldn’t you?

Mary, I worried and stalled through every night of my life
Better safe, than making the party.
And I never had a good time, I sat by my bedside,
With papers, and poetry about Estella,
Great expectations,
We had the greatest expectations....

And I saw taillights last night in a dream about my first wife
Everybody leaves and I'd expect as much from you.
I saw taillights last night in a dream about my old life,
Everybody leaves so why, why wouldn’t you?

Its funny how the night moves.... humming a song from 1962...
(ba ba da ba ba da)
And we were always waiting, always waiting,
We were always waiting for something to happen.......

And I saw taillights last night in a dream about my first wife
Everybody leaves and I'd expect as much from you.
I saw taillights last night in a dream about my old life,
Everybody leaves so why, why wouldn’t you?
