Lyrics

When I heard about Timmy, I was fixing a drink
To the man in the black suit and a tear on his cheek
He said "Ma'am, did you know him"
I thought for a spell
I said, "We were acquainted, not terribly well"

What's terrible was I knew nothing at all
No last name, no hobbies
No friends he should call
But I knew he had demons, oh Lord I know now
When we think that we've lost them
Is when they come out

Ooh, ooh

In the house with the blue shake
And the window shades drawn
It was there that I felt I could write a good song
The grass was unkempt, oh the snakes found their home
And the dog she was old, but had acres to roam

What's terrible was I knew nothing at all
No address, just a place where Timmy called home
And the home it had demons, oh Lord I know now
When we think that we've lost them is when they come out

What's terrible was I knew nothing at all
No address, just a place where Timmy called home
And the home it had demons, oh Lord I know now
When we think that we've lost them is when they come out

Ooh, ooh
