Alone and isolated Cold and neglected
My only friend the bottle When I feel rejected
My best friend the barstool The barmaid my lover
In confession I'll tell all To anyone who listens

That's you my audience
That's you my only friend
That's you, and the taste of alcohol
That's you, won't you listen to my story?

It's so easy to pretend and play With the glory that comes my way
To be someone that you want to be A reflection of our yesterdays
But don't feel sorry now, no Just buy me another round now
And I'll drink to your health For there's nobody else

Just you my audience
Just you my only friend
Just you, and the taste of alcohol
Just you, won't you listen to my story?

Playing is my redemption Sharing contemplations
Singing for my supper Of beer and bread and butter
So don't feel sorry now, no Just buy me another round now
I'll drink to your health For there's nobody else

When I'm standing on the street With the people walking by
Watching, waiting, hoping, playing
Will you spare a few coins throw them in the guitar case
Counting, hoping, performing, denoting
Don't put me down like I'm some kind of slob
Don't walk past, tell me to get a job
Hang around, gather round, Come on and have a dance
Let the music take you Lose yourself in a trance
As the rat race moves along Heads dipped to avoid the view
There's no time to think about The likes of me and you
We're just trying to get it right Cause we know it's going wrong
Looking to the future For that's where we belong
So don't be a victim of the systems fatal plan
To make you all conform to them and then they'll start to ban
All the fun, all the joy, all that makes life great
Just listen to the music Don't live life like a mistake, Just dance

Just you my audience
Just you my only friend
Just you, and the taste of alcohol
Just you, won't you listen to my story? x
Song Comments

Eve's New Car
This was listed as folk rock but it struck me as more R&B. I liked the flute in the song a lot.
