Lenny Bruce Lee
Craig Cardiff Lyrics


He walked up to front of stage
More Lenny Bruce than Bruce Lee
Said "Hey, is there a doctor in the house?"
My hands are all clammy
My spine's made of rubber
Less lion than a mouse
Her makeup was a mess
Near tears, but pitch perfect
I asked her why
She said "Can't you see?"
It's the way they treat the lions
Dressed up courageous
At the end of the night
It's back to the cages
And I can't stand it
I can barely take it
We'll take the long. Way. Back. Home
The crowd all applauded
And at this fine spectacle
A true talent
Wouldn't you agree
The failure of the weak
The headlines recounted
Quite the thing to see
My story was a mess
Near tears, pitch perfect
She asked why, I said "Please"
It's the townies and carnies
Dressed up courgeous
At the end of the night
It's back to the cages
And I can't stand it
I can barely take it
And we'll take the long. Way. Back. Home
The best nights are those
Where you chest is broken open
Your heart feels so big
It can fit the whole ocean
Before they close it
Before they close up
Will you dance with me
We won't call it dancing
Just moving and standing
Together in one place
And up with the lights
Dressed up courageous
The end of the night
We'll pick our own cages
And I can't tell you how
How long I've been waiting
We'll take the long. Way. Back. Home :(

I saw Craig live the other night. He called me and my girlfriend out to the front of the stage for a slow dance while he sang this song. I was super nervous and awkward, and she was her beautiful bubbly self. Truly a special moment that I won't soon forget.
