Hold Steady Lyrics

The Hold Steady writes truly incredible lyrics. Here is a list of some of my favorites.

They say you don't have a problem until you start to do it alone.
They say you don't have a problem until you start bringing it home.
They say you don't have a problem until you start sleeping alone.
You Can Make Him Like You

Silly rabbit, tripping is for teenagers.
Cattle and the Creeping Things

Youth services always finds a way to get their bloody cross into your druggy little messed up teenage life.
Multitude of Casualties

I had my mouth on her nose when the chaperone said we were dancing too close.
Massive Night

She was a really cool kisser and she wasn't all that strict of a Christian.
She was a damn good dancer but she wasn't all that great of a girlfriend.
Stuck Between Stations

Half naked and three quarters wasted. she was completely alone...
...He said take a hit. hold your breath and i'll dunk your head. then when you wake up again. you'll be high as hell and born again.
Banging Camp

it started recreational, it ended kinda medical
Hot Soft Light

If I cross myself when I cum would you maybe receive me?
Yeah Sapphire

In bar light, she looked alright. In daylight, she looked desperate. That's alright I was desperate too. I'm getting pretty sick of this interview.
Sequestered In Memphis

Don't bother talking to the guys with the hot soft eyes. They're already taken.
First Night

And you say you're a princess, but I remain unconvinced.
I've seen the guys that you've been with. They don't seem much like princes.
And you say you're much better, but I don't quite believe it.
I saw the girls that you came with. I saw the guy that you left with.
A Slight Discomfort

And Saturday night was a runway that extended into Sunday, and sometimes Monday.
Joke About Jamaica

I'm pretty sure I wasn't your first choice. I think I was the last one remaining.
The Weekenders

She said always remember and never to trust me
She said that the first night she met me
She said there's gonna be a time
When I'm gonna have to go
With whoever's gonna get me the highest
Hornets! Hornets!

Showing up at shows like you care about the scene still. Where were you when the blood spilled?
Barely Breathing

She got screwed up by religion. She got screwed by soccer players. She got high for the first time in the camps down by the banks of the Mississippi river. Lord to be seventeen forever. She got confused about the truth. She came to in a confession. She got high for the last time in the camps down by the banks of the river. Lord to be 33 forever.
Stevie Nix

Lord, I'm discouraged. She ain't come out dancing for some time
And I tried to light candles, but they burn down to nothing.
She keeps coming up with excuses and half-truths and fortified wine.
Lord, I'm Discouraged

We were bored, so we started a band. We like to play for you.
The Sweet Part Of The City

She's always funny in the morning. She isn't always funny in the night.
Once she gets a couple of drinks in she's probably gonna tell you you ain't doing anything right.

Magazines and daddy issues, I know you're pretty pissed, I hope you'll still let me kiss you.

He wasn't just the drummer, he was someone's little brother
I still spin that single, but it don't sound that simple anymore.
We Can Get Together
