lyrics

Sittin on a kerb outside with my feet on the street when you tripped on them
Slumped with my head in my hands all alone on the phone cos I'd lost my friends
You didn't even look me in the eye, when you said to me 'hi, can I take you home?'
Girl with not a care in the world and my hair up in curls, don't wanna sleep alone

Oh where's my baby gone?

Sittin' in the taxi, frisky in the back seat, can't get home too soon
We stumble in the doorway, stagger up the stairway, didn't even see my livin' room
No words spoken as my blouse feel open and we're both thinking the same
My head is spinning and my face is grinning cos baby, I don't even know your name

Hey Baby, what's your name?

And suddenly I'm thinking of him cos tonight I went drinking withyou and drinking it helps me forget
When morning comes, I won't make my bed, won't say my prayers, cos I'm goin to go drinking again

It's 10am I got to start again, I''m gonna kill the pain that's in my head
Its bringing me down I got to hit the town as soon as I roll out of bed
Last nights fun has been and gone todays a brand new one we'll laugh and joke and drink and smoke and maybe we'll sing another song

Oh where's my baby gone?

And suddenly I'm thinking of him cos tonight I went drinking withyou and drinking it helps me forget
When morning comes, I won't make my bed, won't say my prayers, cos I'm goin to go drinking again

But in the end when they're all away
The lights are down and the skys are grey
I'll ask from you, oh one little thing,
when your holdin hads and closing eyes
I don't want you to fantasise
Just remember me when your remembering

No words spoken as my blouse feel open and we're both thinking the same
My head is spinning and my face is grinning cos baby, I don't even know your name

Hey Baby, what's your name?

And suddenly I'm thinking of him cos tonight I went drinking withyou and drinking it helps me forget
When morning comes, I won't make my bed, won't say my prayers, cos I'm goin to go drinking again x 2

about

Louisiana Joyride Belfast

LJ was born out of a desire to write lyrically honest songs to a punk country beat. With a sincere mix of dark story telling wrapped in the strong vocals of Owen and Orla, the funky bass addition from Russ Li-Nesbitt and some banging drum beats, it's hard not to find yourself thinking country music's not so bad afterall. ... more
