Half Life
In love, in need, in want, in miss
I taste your bite, I taste your kiss
And I think back, the things you said
They make me mad, a bull to red

And I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you wore
And I'm lost inside a bar
And I'm drunk inside a war...

Drinking Martinis by myself
On a Sunday
Drinking Martinis again
On a Monday

It's a half life...

I buy your brand, I smoke your brand
I count the what ifs on one hand...

Drinking Martinis alone
Sunday morning
Drinking Martinis again
Sunday evening
Half Life

This song is from the album Roses are Red, Violets are Blue.

Nico: they say it's easy to write about it if you've lived it. I guess that's true. This tune has two things which save it from being a complete YAID (Yet Another Indie Dirge): Wendy's awesome string arrangement, and, to use the words of mastering engineer Mark Donahue: "the loudest twenty seconds I've mastered this year."
