lyrics

the ghost of the last great highway
danced like a drone on the air
living out of a bag from delta to drag
I was thumbing my way to nowhere
I was halfway from here to the shot glass
and halfway from feeling to numb
I was hanging my head for drink or for dread
when I found you my favourite son
but all I could feel was the humdrum
and all I could hear was the hum
everything that you said going over my head
in light of my favourite son

I need you like a planet needs a black hole
I need you like a lover needs to lose control
I need you like a heart needs to concede
I need you but you’re not what I need

the weight of the deadlock was lifted
the curse of the age was undone
the minutes grew still as if waiting until
the return of my favourite son
but all I could feel was the humdrum
and all I could hear was the hum
an though I wasn’t afraid I was starting to fade
to the sound of my favourite son

I need you like a planet needs a black hole
I need you like a lover needs to lose control
I need you like a hear needs to concede
I need you but you’re not what I need
I need you like a river needs to run dry
I need you like a bullet needs an alibi
I need you like the earth needs a bad seed
I need you but you’re not what I need

you are my favourite son
you are the only one
you are my favourite son
