lyrics

"Frankie"

It's been too long without you around
And since you went up, things got quiet downtown
My whole life feels like a party
In need of a clown

Nothing is quite the same
I dream that you're dying and cry out your name
The last thing I'm gonna do now
Is start laying blame

(chorus)
Hey, Frankie, are you all right?
You look kind of strange
Though that may be the light
I thought if you wanted to
You could stay here tonight

I miss how you'd laugh for no reason at all
Sit there and breathe every time that I call
Try to convince me you're short
When you really were tall

And when you were too tired to run
We'd drink cold black coffee and wait for the sun
You said once that if you could trust me
Then I'd be the one

(chorus)

Now I don't expect you to be
Everything that you once were to me
As long as we're here for each other
I'll try to believe

(chorus to end)
