lyrics

Queen of Carter’s Bar 
(Bella Hardy & Peter Groenwald) 

 
Watching from the corner of the bar 
Remembering the night I found you at my door 
You were running away, drenched by the storm 
I said “Listen to the thunder, tells you what you need to know” 
 
The best thing you can give is as good as you get 
Another day’s coming, and I’m not done yet 
 
We circled round the sun, and you grew wild and free 
With the barn owls and the stars keeping company 
Then you woke from a dream and I was bad luck 
And she was plucking at my roses, doe-eyed, red-lipped and moon-struck 
 
The best thing you can give is as good as you get 
Another day’s coming, and I’m not done yet 
 
But I can’t help remembering 
How once you were my own 
But when you gave your heart to me 
I should have swapped it out for stone 
 
Instead I’m sitting in the corner here in Carter’s Bar 
And I’m watching you pretend to be the things you aren’t 
First you were a lion, then a snake, then a black dog 
But the truth of you has faded, I don’t know you anymore 
 
The best thing you can give is as good as you get 
Another day’s coming, and I’m not done yet
