Favorite Brian Fallon Lyrics

Those Molly and the Zombies demos that came out recently reminded me that Brian Fallon an excellent lyricist, plus I'm pretty hyped for the new Gaslight Anthem album so here are my favorite lines from his songs.
20 The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

The Backseat: But you and I, we've been through this/Maybe a hundred times before/Always hitchin' rides with strangers that papa warned us about before/But you know the summer always brought in/That wild and reckless breeze/And in the backseats we just tried to find some room for our knees
19The Gaslight Anthem
American Slang

Old Haunts: So don't sing me your songs about the good times/Those days are gone and you should just let them go/And god help the man who says "If you'd have known me when..."
18The Gaslight Anthem
Sink or Swim

We're Getting a Divorce, You Keep the Diner: Were the things that we wanted when we were still 16 only passing and fleeting or just too far out of reach?
17The Gaslight Anthem
American Slang

Boxer: You found the bandages inside the pen, and the stitches on the radio/But there was something heavy holding you down, and there were whispers that were driving you crazy
16The Gaslight Anthem
Sink or Swim

We Came to Dance: Strike up the band, play a song that everybody knows/If I'm not your kind, then don't tell a soul/I'm not the one who hates bein' alone, so come on
15The Gaslight Anthem
American Slang

Orphans: Goodbye, circus wheel, maybe you rest along the seas/I have given you the fire of my youth and the triumph of my enemies/And goodbye, fair weather home and your faithless factories/I have given you the blood and the truth from the wounds that they laid on me/And whatever they left, I kept it for my own heart/And the lonesome understand with the choirs in my head, we were orphans before we were ever the sons of regret
14 The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

High Lonesome: And Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand/I always kinda sorta wished I looked like Elvis/And in my head there's all these classic cars and outlaw cowboy bands/I always kinda sorta wished I was someone else
13The Gaslight Anthem
Sink or Swim

Red in the Morning: Let me drive, let me drive, disappear in the night/Like I was a ghost in your dreams
12 The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

Film Noir: I lit a fire that wouldn't go out, until it consumed the walls and roof of this house, until all I remember was burnin' away, and all I remember, you burned it away
11The Gaslight Anthem
Sink or Swim

I'da Called You Woody, Joe: And this was the sound of the very last gang in town/As heard by my wild young heart like directions on a cold dark night/Sayin' "Let it out, let it out, let it out you're doin' all right."/And I heard it in his chain gang soul/how it wasn't just the same sad song/Sayin' "Let it out, let it out, let it out, you're doin' all right."
10 The Gaslight Anthem
Senor and the Queen

Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts: We sing with our heroes 33 rounds per minute, and we're never coming home until the sun says we're finished/I'll love you forever if I ever love at all/Wild hearts, blue jeans and white t-shirts
9 The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

The '59 Sound: Well I wonder which song they're gonna play when we go/I hope it's something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow
8The Gaslight Anthem
Sink or Swim

Red at Night: I was born in a town where the rivers flow free, on a January night when the cold winds freeze/I got an Irish name and an injury, a blessing and a curse cast down on me
7Molly and the Zombies
Molly and the Zombies

Smoke: And you never ended up coming home, you just became something like some smoke that I tried too hard to hold
6 The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

Meet Me By The River's Edge: You know I had these ballroom dreams that as a child came to me/I was a boy in Grandma's arms, a mother's pride and a wounded heart/And I was full with fiery wonder, you wore Audrey Hepburn pearls/You were the only one who understood me then, and the only one who will
5The Gaslight Anthem

Handwritten; Let it out, let me in, take a hold of my hand/There's nothing like another soul that's been cut up the same/And did you wanna drive without a word in-between?/I can understand, you need a minute to breathe, and to sew up the seams after all this defeat
4 The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

Old White Lincoln: And I always dreamed of classic cars and movie screens, and tryin' to find some way to be redeemed
3Molly and the Zombies
Molly and the Zombies

Long Drives: Last night, I remembered being seventeen/I met a girl with a taste for the world, and whiskey, and Rites of Spring/Spent every night with cassettes that she liked, in a car that I borrowed a lot
2 The Gaslight Anthem
The 59 Sound

Great Expectations: Mary, this station is playing every sad song, I remember like we were alive/I heard it Sunday morn' from inside of these walls, in a prison cell where we spent those nights/And they burned up the diner where I always used to find her, licking young boys' blood from her claws/And I learned about the blues from this kitten I knew, her hair was raven and her heart was like a tomb
1The Gaslight Anthem
Sink or Swim

I Coulda Been A Contender: I was gonna get this real big engine, I was gonna get them Broadway stars/You were gonna be my Judy Garland, we were gonna share your tin man heart
