Grand Theft Autumn

Album: Take This To Your Grave (2003)
  • Where is your boy tonight
    I hope he is a gentleman
    And maybe he won't find out what I know
    You were the last good thing about this part of town

    When I wake up
    I'm willing to take my chances on
    The hope I forget that you hate him more than you notice
    I wrote this for you, for you, so

    You need him
    I could be him
    I could be an accident but I'm still tryin'
    And that's more than I can say for him

    Where is your boy tonight
    I hope he is a gentleman
    And maybe he won't find out what I know
    You were the last good thing about this part of town

    Someday I'll appreciate in value
    Get off my ass and call you
    In the mean time I'll sport my brand new fashion
    Of waking up with pants on at four in the afternoon

    D'you need him
    I could be him
    I could be an accident but I'm still tryin'
    And that's more than I can say for him

    One, two, three, four

    Where is your boy tonight
    I hope he is a gentleman
    And maybe he won't find out what I know
    You were the last good thing about this part of town

    Won't find out
    He won't find out
    Won't find out
    He won't find out

    Where is your boy tonight
    I hope he is a gentleman
    Maybe he won't find out what I know
    You were the last good thing about this part of town

    Where is your boy tonight?
    I hope he is a gentleman
    Maybe he won't find out what I know
    You were the last good thing about this part of town
