Sad Hours
Little Walter Lyrics


I can't imagine all the people that you know
And the places that you go
When the lights are turned down low
And I don't understand all the things you've seen

But I'm slipping in between
You and your big dreams
It's always you
In my big dreams
And you tell me that it's over
Wake up lying in a patch of four leaf clovers
And you're restless, and I'm naked

You've got to get out
You can't stand to see me shaking, no
Could you let me go?
I didn't think so

And you don't want to be here in the future
So you say the present's just a pleasant
Interruption to the past

And you don't want to look much closer
Because you're afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had crashed
And it did because of me

And then you bring me home
Afraid to find out that you're alone
And I'm sleeping in your living room
But we don't have much room to live

I had these dreams in them I learned to play guitar
Maybe cross the country, become a rock star
And there was hope in me that I could take you there
But dammit, you're so young

Well, I don't think I care
And if I hurt you, then I'm sorry
Please don't think that this was easy

Then you'd bring me home
Because we both know what it's like to be alone
And I'm dreaming in your living room
But we don't have much room to live

And Konstantine is walking down the stairs
Doesn't she look good standing in her underwear?
And I was thinking, what I was thinking
We've been drinking and it doesn't get me anywhere

My Konstantine came walking down the stairs
And all that I could do is touch her long blond hair
And I've been thinking
It hurts me thinking that these nights when we were drinking
No, they never got us anywhere, no

This is because I can spell konfusion with a 'k'
And I can like it, it's to dying in another's arms
And why I had to try it

It's to Jimmy Eat World and those nights in my car
When the first star you see may not be a star
I'm not your star, isn't that what you said
What you thought this song meant

And if this is what it takes
Just to lie with my mistakes
And live with what I did to you
All the hell I put you through

I always catch the clock it's 11:11
And now you want to talk
It's not hard to dream
You'll always be my Konstantine

My Konstantine, they'll never hurt you like I do
No, they'll never hurt you like I do
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

This is to a girl who got into my head
With all the pretty things she did
Hey, you know, you keep me up in bed
This is to a girl who got into my head

With all these fucked up things I did
Hey, maybe, baby, you could keep me up in bed
My Konstantine, you spin around me like a dream
We played out on this movie screen
And I said

Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?

Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
I miss you

And then you bring me home
And we'll go to sleep, but this time not alone, no, no
And you'll kiss me in your living room
I know you'll miss me in your living room

Because these nights I think maybe that
I'll miss you in my living room, we don't have much room
I said does anybody need that room?
Because we all need a little more room to live

I love little Walter's music wish I could have been have been there to see him live because this harmonica the best blues I heard yet rest in peace Lil Walter

Samuel Quintanilla

One of the greatest sounds ever created by a human being.

Michael

Best piece of instumental music ever.

Joan M James

"Lights Out" is the best!

Michael

@Graham James Still prefer Sad Hours and Blue Midnight. With all today's technological gizmos no one can replicate that sound (in my mind). Sure, they can play the notes but it goes beyond the notes and I've never heard his equal, yet.

Michael

@Clayton's Riot Agreed, Blue Midnight is phenomenal.

I used to sit up at my parent's bach looking out at the lights and thinking this was deep as the blues could get
