Sad Old Red (2005)

I walk on stone, it leads me home
We don’t have streets, just pure con­crete
I’m not glad when I get home
I’m sad old red, I don’t wanna be alone
No more, no more

I go whiter in the face, my feet begin to shake
I go upstairs to that heav­enly place
I’m not glad when I get home
I’m sad old red, I don’t wanna be alone no more

Chor­us:
Sad old red, sat at home
Sad old red, liv­ing on his own
Sad old red, sat at home
Sad old red, let me take you home

It’s a cubic room, two holes peep through
Shad­ows on the wall of trees so tall
I think of her again, the joy that she used to bring
Lay there in bed, two words she said
When we made love
She said to me “oh red”
She said “oh red”

All the time “oh red”, every night “oh red”
Sad old red

That’s what I am
All the time

That’s what I am
All the time

Sad old red
Sad old red
