From the recording The Key To Happiness (Deluxe Edition)
"National Anthem" originally written and performed by The Gaslight Anthem
Lyrical changes by Liam Kyle Cahill portrayed below
Is it too much to ask for a little honesty?
When I would come home were you even glad to see me?
I’m licking as my open wounds slowly turn to scars
My only therapy comes from coffee shops and bars
When my heart is just working way too hard
And I would have held the door for another fifty years
The salt on my tongue’s just a product of the tears
When it all falls apart and you’ve got nowhere to go
You’ve burned all the bridges that once led you home
And hauntingly I’ve become your ghost
