I Can’t Live With You Anymore

I wrote a letter left it on the door
You went and changed the locks
Do I live here anymore

And I pay my bills
Changed the will
Living the divorced life
I can’t live without a wife

Kids are changing schools
You make up the rules
with your dime store book advice

I can’t live
With you anymore.

With broken vows
nights out on the town
You went and left it all
Are you the same anymore

The young guys tell you
‘What you doing here’
I’d sleep with you tonight

Tomorrow your age
wrinkles on the stage
of celebrity from the night before

If You’re Not Careful

Some people ask me how many drinks does it take
To write those songs, songs that you make
And I tell them I don’t know

So just stop asking cause when i’m talking to you
I’ve probably already had a few
and if  you aint careful
the next song
will be about you

Sometimes I Feel So Sad

Update:  This song has been included on the new Bear and Porch CD.  To listen to it, or (soon) purchase it, please visit music.killfly.com

Sometimes I feel so sad
‘Bout the girlfriend
That I don’t have
Sitting home alone again
I want one by my side
A woman through the night
Sometimes I feel it so strong

[chorus]
And then my friend calls me
Bout the troubles he has had
And suddenly
I don’t feel so bad

She aint ever mean
smells so nice and clean
always wakes up with a smile

Ice skating in the snow
Taking off those winter clothes
Making love by the fire

[chorus]
Put on a sexy dress
Your makeup is a mess
Because we’re kissing in the rain

Buying you new clothes
Manicures and pretty toes
That shade sure looks good on you

[chorus]

She tells me she loves me
Want to meet her family
Watch the sunset on the beach

My thoughts all pretty things
Churchbells and wedding rings
Two kids and a house

I Need a Stiff Drink

(written by Chris Poirier and Andrew Beardsley)

Had a beer, just aint feeling right
Wont get me in jail, get me in a fight
Wont make me fall asleep somewhere I don’t know
Wake up in the morning Wearing all my clothes

[chorus]
How Many, How many have you had
How Many, Still Feeling Sad
I need a Stiff Drink
I need a Stiff Drink
I need a Stiff Drink Tonight

Ordered another Draft , Put It on my tab
Won’t end up throwing up or Hailing a Cab
Won’t make me grab the microphone or Start to Dance
Won’t Make me ask her If I Have a Chance

[Chorus]

Hey Bartender, I’ll Have another Pint
Sure as hell Wont, Get Shut Off Tonight
Won’t End Up Yelling, “The Bouncer is a Jerk”
Won’t End up Sleeping In and Calling in to Work

[Chorus]

Another Round of Pitchers for me and my Friends
We’ll be here all Night Long, Till The End
Won’t End Up On The Steps Talking to a Girl so Fine
Won’t Buy her friends a Shot or a Bottle of Wine

[chorus]

I Don’t Want to Fight About it Anymore

[C] I coulda been a writer
Or a poet I know for sure
I can [G] write all night, into the day
[C] If I wanted to

But now I sit
Just me and a ciggarette
Makin’ love to the night
And I don’t know why

[chorus]
I’d [G] rather be with someone
who [C] makes me feel at peace
who’ll [G] grab me and hold me
And [C] tell me it’s ok
A [G] woman who’ll be there
When [C] I come home too late
And [D] I don’t want to fight
a[G]bout it anymore

I thought I found a friend
Lonely men always do
We search far and wide
Turn our hearts inside out for you

Can’t you see what I’m tryin’ to say
We howl at the moon
But we don’t mean it
We’d rather come home to you (and we do)

[chorus]

Solitary Man

C – Am – F – G

I got my first allergy
Somethin’ bad happened to me
I think it’s somethin’ you’ll understand

Makin’ dinner for one
Lord knows it ain’t no fun
Drinkin’ my beer all alone

[chorus]
[F] I never thought I’d [G] see
The [C] day where I would [Am] be
[F] I’m doin’ the best I [G] can
As a solitary [C] man

Footsteps sound so loud
When you’re the only one around
And the fridge just won’t quit

Thunderstorms are much less fun
When you’re the only one
Countin’ down the time

[chorus]

I got a garbage can
I got pots and pans
One of everything

I got a ceiling fan
for a solitary man
None of which I need

[chorus] (repeat last line)
