Atl lyrics
Born from hippies back in '69
I was bored by 1992
I walked into a recruitment office
A year before that
Said "son we've been waiting for you"
Discharged from a gulf war the very same year
I came home with a carton or two
Of cigarettes and mixtapes
And bullets from a gun
That my dead best friend never could use

Oh atlanta, please need me
Like i needed you
Let your sweaty embrace open wide
'cause atlanta, i'm falling
Like most people do
And i need all your ground to survive

Wasted and downtrodden
Lonely in vain
I cried myself blind at the sight
Of the old shopping center
Where we used to ride
Now condos as sterile as i
So i bought me an old airstream
For 3,000 bucks
From a drug dealer i used to owe
And i thought to myself as i slept off a high
The irony is starting to show

Oh atlanta, please need me
Like i needed you
Let your sweaty embrace open wide
'cause atlanta, i'm falling
Like some people do
And i need all your ground to survive

Drove out to asheville
'cause that's where you were
Where you married into money and pills
And i wanted so bad to be good with you now
But the fact is that you never will
Cause some become lovers because of the sex
And some, you know, they just become friends
Hey
In our case, we just became bad at it all
And i never got good at it again

Oh atlanta, please need me like i needed you
Let your sweaty embrace open wide
'cause atlanta, i'm suffocating
Like some people do
And i need all your air to survive
Thanks to buddytyree for these lyrics!

God, I love this song. It's one of Butch's signature cry-your-eyes-out-an - d-cut-yourself - piano ballads and he really shows off his songwriting and vocal capabilities on this one.
