Good As Gold 03:13
I’m afraid of losing Not afraid of losing you Cos I don’t think of you like I thing of mine that I can just up and lose I’m afraid of losing Losing everything to you My heart my pride, a wreck inside Nothin’ on this jukebox ‘cept the blues But baby if you go it’s over for good And I’m as good as gone No it won’t be long til the wrong song comes on at the right time You’re as good as gold ’m as good as gone I’m worn out from worry Not worry over you Cos with my troubles mine you’ll be just fine In whatever world you choose

It seems my way of livin’ don’t live up to your standards And if you had your way I’d be some proper kinda lady Well the door is over there if I may speak with perfect candor You’re welcome to walk through it any old time that you fancy Cos I need this shit like I need another hole in my head It was more the way the words came out than the things you said I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day Just gonna lie here and complain instead I will survive without your love don’t you dare pretend I won’t Been all alone before and lived to tell the tale Every day here lately damned if I do damned if I don’t Thought we found a good thing seems I keep findin’ new ways to fail Cos I need this shit like I need another hole in my head It was more the way the words came out than the things you said I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day Just gonna lie here and complain instead Cos I need this shit like I need another hole in my head It was more the way the words came out than the things you said I’m too damn tired to feed the dog or get outta bed Too damn tired to walk away, too tired to make it through another day Just gonna lie here and complain instead Just gonna lie here and complain instead

Over You 03:11
I recall the way things used to be Back in the beginning And it ain’t at all the way you now come to me And nobody here is winning We lost it all along the way You let me fall into the fray What’s left of us in just a needle in the hay I don’t wanna try again this time I’m all over you, I’m all over you I don’t wanna cry again cos I’m too tired I’ve had more than enough You can’t tell me that this is love Those were the days when love was not a lie you told But the brightest flames of love can grow cold Everybody knows how a feelin’ comes and goes And when it slips away it somehow always shows You let me slip between the cracks And I tried so hard to find my way back In so many ways so many times I can’t keep track I don’t wanna try again this time I’m all over you, I’m all over you I don’t wanna cry again cos I’m too tired I’ve had more than enough You can’t tell me that this is love I don’t wanna cry again cos I’m too tired I’ve had more than enough You can’t tell me that this is love

Every day you tell me I’m a drunkard And every night you lie awake and stew I never claimed to be anything other, darlin’ Cos the bottle never lets me down the way you do Every night I sit til sunup drinkin’ And every day I wait for night to fall So I can clear the darkest memories from my recollection And hear no sounds and feel nothing at all The bottle never lets me down You won’t find it runnin’ round In the darkest corners of this town, away from me No I keep this bottle close in hand It’s the only thing left I got that I can Make me feel the man I used to be I never want to remember the joy you brought me Oh how I used to laugh, I loved the things we’d do I’ve forgotten all about the things that could be, darlin’ Cos the bottle never lets me down the way you do The bottle never lets me down You won’t find it runnin’ round In the darkest corners of this town, away from me No I keep this bottle close in hand It’s the only thing left I got that I can Make me feel the man I used to be Make me feel the man Make me feel the man Make me feel the man I used to be
5.
I’m left here alone with this hole in my heart that just keeps growin’ She took every single little thing with her that she owns and left me with only parting words Parting words can’t wrap their arms around me And make a sea of love for a home Parting words won’t keep my heart from hurting While you sail away with all the light I’ve ever known But I deserve Parting words I was a fool and I was careless, she was a fool to see anything in me When I had her love I was fearless, but my hard livin’ took my lovin’ one away Parting words can’t wrap their arms around me And make a sea of love for a home Parting words won’t keep my heart from hurting While you sail away with all the light I’ve ever known But I deserve Parting words
6.
We can’t win for losin’ Fightin’ every step of the way Battles we shouldn’t be choosin’ Prices too high for us to pay Nobody told me it’s like this out here Is that what it takes It takes everything It costs us all we have This love I can hear the voice of my mother Echoing down through the years Saying love your sisters and brothers That’s why we’re all put here Nobody told me it’s like this out here Is that what it takes It takes everything It costs us all we have This love Is that what it takes It takes everything It costs us all we have This love This love This love This love

Lesson 02:45
Heartaches on long breaks I learn from my mistakes Hope you do, too Hard turns and slow burns the wounded heart still learns Hope you do, too I wanna learn me my lesson and move on I wanna keep on lovin’ til the lovin’s gone Cos I can see that sometimes weak is somehow strong And I knew it all along Didn’t you Steel traps and throwbacks I try to trace my tracks Hope you do, too Long range and short change I find everything strange Hope you do, too I wanna learn me my lesson and move on I wanna keep on lovin’ til the lovin’s gone Cos I can see that sometimes weak is somehow strong And I knew it all along Didn’t you High hopes and short ropes I try to change my scope Hope you do, too Drunk nights and fistfights I’m down by the bright lights Hope you are, too I wanna learn me my lesson and move on I wanna keep on lovin’ til the lovin’s gone Cos I can see that sometimes weak is somehow strong And I knew it all along Didn’t you Didn’t you Didn’t you Didn’t you

I didn’t mean to stay out all night drinkin’ I didn’t mean to stay out til the break of day I didn’t mean to stay out til the goddam cows came home Please believe me it just happened this way Oh darlin, please believe me it just happened this way I’ll be damned if I do I’ll be damned if I don’t I’ll be damned when I try to find my own way back home I’ll be damned if I do I’ll be damned if I don’t I’ll be standin’ at your window I’ll by cryin’ at your door Singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin’ light outside, let me in” I wasn’t fixin’ to stay til closin’ time I hadn’t planned on runnin’ into that moonshine I tried to get me home by 8 but I was 10 hours too late Please believe me it just happened this way Oh darlin, please believe me it just happened this way I’ll be damned if I do I’ll be damned if I don’t I’ll be damned when I try to find my own way back home I’ll be damned if I do I’ll be damned if I don’t I’ll be standin’ at your window I’ll by cryin’ at your door Singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin’ light outside, let me in” There was no plate of dinner in the oven So I know I ain’t about to get no lovin’ I didn’t mean to stay out til the goddamn cows came home Please believe me it just happened this way Oh darlin, please believe me it just happened this way I’ll be damned if I do I’ll be damned if I don’t I’ll be damned when I try to find my own way back home I’ll be damned if I do I’ll be damned if I don’t I’ll be standin’ at your window I’ll by cryin’ at your door Singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin’ light outside, let me in” I’ll be damned if I do I’ll be damned if I don’t I’ll be damned when I try to find my own way back home I’ll be damned if I do I’ll be damned if I don’t I’ll be standin’ at your window I’ll by cryin’ at your door Singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin’ light outside, let me in” ’ll be singin’ “Baby, it’s gettin light outside let me in”

I’ve been here before Waitin’ round my door For somebody I know for sure ain’t comin’ around The hours and minutes pass by I swear I ain’t gonna cry Just walk the floors over you til I die, cos I drowned I drown in sorrow again just playin’ my part I drown in whiskey and then I tear out my heart I’d give anything I possess To drown even a little less But I ain’t cut out for it I could never tally the cost Of all of the loves I have lost All the times and the ways I been crossed when I was too dumb to tell This time I ain’t even gonna try And I bet all’a you know just why Cos all y’all been right here at some time in heartache and hell I drown in sorrow again just playin’ my part I drown in whiskey and then I tear out my heart I’d give anything I possess To drown even a little less But I ain’t cut out for it I drown in sorrow again just playin’ my part I drown in whiskey and then I tear out my heart I’d give anything I possess To drown even a little less But I ain’t cut out for it But I ain’t cut out for it

Years 03:35
I been waitin’ round here for too long Hopin’ love would find a way Wishin’ you were good for me And that time would surely prove me wrong I been askin’ nature for a sign Listenin’ for a certain call Some kinda writin’ on the wall A pattern in the lack of a design There was a time you were good to me And we took on new frontiers There was a time you were kind to me But baby it’s been years I been waitin’ round here for too long Lettin’ dust collect on my Sense of who am I and I Believe you saw this comin’ all along There was a time you were good to me And we took on new frontiers There was a time you were kind to me But baby it’s been year Baby it’s been years since I knew how to move you Can’t recall the last time you said my name the way you used to All these years and what do we have to show We been pickin’ up the pieces far to slow Years Years

about

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Sarah Shook & The Disarmers are a country band with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies. Shook's original songs take on the usual country spin on shitty relationships, bad decisions, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons.
