lyrics

Every time you shake your head,
and say "I don't wanna think about that."
Well, that's just one more thing
that we haven't dealt with yet.

Every time I fall down at the bar with my last glass
I think, this sweet girl might be the last.
The last one that I love and that I'll ever come to know
but c'mon, sweet Madeline, we both know.

Every time I fall down at the bar with my last pint,
she thinks "I might be this sweet boy's wife."
The last one that he'll know and that he'll ever come to love
but c'mon, sweet Madeline, you're not the one.

Now I'm putting on her pearls and all her fur,
trying to remember how it felt to hold her.
I walk home from the bar, south down Superior.
Down by the river where I first saw her.

Every time I fall down at the bar with my last glass
I think, this sweet girl might be the last.
The last one that I love and that I'll ever come to know
but c'mon, sweet Madeline, we both know.

Every time I fall down at the bar with my last pint,
she thinks "I might be this sweet boy's wife."
The last one that he'll know and that he'll ever come to love
but c'mon, sweet Madeline, you're not the one.

Sweet Madeline, you're not the one.
