The actual title is "I’ve got those late night all right summers almost over but the headlights too bright better pull it over cause the wife is gonna kill me if I don’t arrive completely sober blues, again" but it's a little long.

Lyrics

All I can remember was I was driving

Somewhere out on I95

And if I had a clue where I had come from

I might get a clue where I'd arrive

 

Hold back the rain, hold back the night

It’s warm in here and so cold outside

Hold back the rain, hold back the night

I don’t want to ever say goodbye/ say goodbye

 

And the more I think about it all the more I just don’t care

So I drive and I drive and but I don’t get anywhere

 

I’ve got those late night all right summers almost over but the headlights too bright better pull it over cause the wife is gonna kill me if I don’t arrive completely sober blues, again

 

Now drinking all alone has its advantage

I don’t have to answer to nobody but me

And though I’ve had a few I didn’t care for

I never had a drink that I didn’t need

 

Hold back the rain, hold back the night

It’s warm in here and so cold outside

Hold back the rain, hold back the night

I don’t want to ever say goodbye/ say goodbye

 

And the more I think about it all the more I just don’t care

So I drive and I drive and but I don’t get anywhere

 

I’ve got those late night all right summers almost over but the headlights too bright better pull it over cause the wife is gonna kill me if I don’t arrive completely sober blues, again

 

And I don't know why I’m just a Barfly

 

Now I’ve been tossed and turned and accosted

(Hold back the rain, hold back the night)

By demons and conspiracies

(Hold back the rain, hold back the night)

When all of my alternatives have been exhausted

(Hold back the rain, hold back the night

I turn to the killer that comforts me

( I don’t wanna ever say goodbye, say goodbye)

 

And the more I think about it all the more I just don’t care

So I drive and I drive and but I don’t get anywhere
