Alabama 3 - Miss Martell's Lament lyrics

A broken home
Forces you to be alone
And it's hard to find the pieces
When they're scattered in the corners of your mind
Left your heart behind
When she's turning you blind
To that golden ship that passes
On the search for a little hope for something real

Burning out you can't live without
My brother's hooked on seeing Miss Martell

Will you waste it all
For lack the rest of them fall
Just a hedonistic fool
That knows exactly how
This story's gotta end
On a cold wet night
With no fuss and no fight
You'll volunteer to lie down in the dirt
The devil saved for your still heart
