my favourite moment in any tom waits track, ever
you all posting your favourite tom waits moment, but it doesn't have to
i'll take any man here
The blood writes the word
I want to know AM I THE SKY
OR A BIRD
IS A-SPINNING ROOOUUUNNNDDD
MY HEEEAAARRRTTT IN MY SHOOOEEESSS
Well the night does funny things inside a man
These old tom-cat feelings you don't understand,
Well I turn around to look at you, you light a cigarette,
I wish I had the guts to bum one, but we've never met,
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
I'll be eligible for parole come Valetine's day

He bought a second-hand nova from a cuban chinese
And dyed his hair in the bathroom of a texaco
With a pawnshop radio, quarter past four
He left for waukegan at the slamming of the door
...with macadamia nuts"
and in fact the rest of kentucky ave.
