about

The first song that Vagabondage ever wrote, this sweet song of drinking with friends, pounding the streets together, and general lost adventures has always been a favorite of audiences to sing, sway, and dance along to. Hoist those beverages!

lyrics

Raise your glass of ale tonight
Raise it to flourescent lights
'Cause soon enough this night will end
And we will find the street again

You were such a gorgeous mess
Guys tried to light your cigarettes
The flames would dance around your dress
As you drink your whiskey singing

CHORUS

You were always what I need
But you could not control your speed
I reach for your hand but it's never there
I still have that lock of hair

CHORUS

I thought that we would just be friends
And stick together 'til the end
But you and I aren't what we need
And now we sing on broken feet

CHORUS

Summer flies and winter falls
Soon we'll be trapped inside these walls
So drink to freedom and drink to friends
'Cause soon enough this night will end
