When Strangers Step in the Bar

Lyrics: 

High fives are flying and the pace is slowing down
Jack McNally is doing another round
There's a fly on the glass and the whisky is a perfect brown
But the glass has started shrinking and the room's started spinning round
And I catch your eye as you look away
Glimpsing a semblance of yesterday
When you were drinking your mind was thinking out loud

Life is calling as the booze is slipping down
You're always falling and stumbling and tripping around
And I hear the voice inside you say
Look at all these chances I've thrown away
Like a beggar or a thief I'm among the lowest of this town

You'll have another Jacob's Creek
You're afraid to speak
I catch that look in your eye
When Strangers Step In The Bar
Was that hope upon your face
Am I invading your space
When Strangers Step In The Bar
Feel your body temperature rise
Another dead man dies
When Strangers Step In The Bar
And you're always getting high
You're telling no more lies
When Strangers Step In The Bar

You never stopped running from the highs that you nearly found
When you could have been soaring you chose to stay on the ground
And the men with the mirth they continue to laugh out loud
The loss of our innocence has always made us proud
And every bad trip has a price to pay
Dancing in the ruins of the shorter way
Now it's time for the wretched and the hopeless to take a bow

You'll have another Jacob's Creek
You're afraid to speak
I catch that look in your eye
When Strangers Step In The Bar
Was that hope upon your face
Am I invading your space
When Strangers Step In The Bar
Feel your body temperature rise
Another dead man dies
When Strangers Step In The Bar
And you're always getting high
You're telling no more lies
When Strangers Step In The Bar

And I realize
My blatant lies
Could never have brought hope
For you and me
But down the line
There had to be a time
When the blood and the bruises
Would give into this sign

Life is calling as the booze is slipping down
You're always falling and stumbling and tripping around
And I hear the voice in your head say
Look at all these chances I've thrown away
Like a beggar or a thief I'm among the lowest of this town 

You'll have another Jacob's Creek
You're afraid to speak
I catch that look in your eye
When Strangers Step In The Bar
Was that hope upon your face
Am I invading your space
When Strangers Step In The Bar
Feel your body temperature rise
Another dead man dies
When Strangers Step In The Bar
And you're always getting high
You're telling no more lies
When Strangers Step In The Bar
