belle of boulevard

so this morning i turned on TV and when i switched channel to [V] there was dashboard confessional with their latest single from their very new album!!!!(unlucky me,i just watched half of it, i should switch channel earlier!)
i am a big BIG fan of them..if you notice, screaming infidelities--the name of this blog is title from their song back in 2003..but i kinda disappointed because this album is like their "dusk and summer" so not dashboard at all..but chris' voice makes me always recognize every new song from them whenever i heard it from radio or TV..after "dusk and summer", they had "shades of poison tree" which had the old style of dashboard and i love every single song of it..but since i always love them no matter what, this new album "alter the ending" will be my new obsession. my long time obsession i guess.
so this is the new song from them...nice lyrics as always!

belle of boulevard

Down in a local bar
Out on the boulevard
The sound of an old guitar
Is saving you from sinking
It's a long way down
It's a long way

Back like you never broke
You tell a dirty joke
He touches your leg and thinks he's getting close
For now you let him just this once
Just for now
And just like that - it's over

[Chorus:]
Don't turn away
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
Don't be afraid
Keep it all inside, all inside
When you fall apart
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
Life is always hard for the belle of the boulevard

In all your silver rings
And all your silken things
That song you softly sing - is keeping you from breaking
It's a long way down
It's a long way
Back here you never loved
You've shaked the shivers off
You take a drink to get your courage up
Can you believe it
Just this once
Just for now
And just like that
It's over

[Chorus]

Please hold on - it's alright
Please hold on - it's alright
Please hold on

Down in a local bar
Out on the boulevard
The sound of an old guitar
Is saving you

i was literally gaga-ing when i saw the title of this song...belle?seriously? *sigh*
