White Lace

Who cares about your money?
Who cares about our lives?
We're wearing white lace in a popular place
We're sniffin' in style.
Never stop and question,
You know we're just too high.
So take another taste, put that smile on your face.
Today's promise is tomorrow's lie.

WHITE LACE, nothing can take your place
WHITE LACE, now that you've had a taste
And the only men who ain't afraid
Are fools and those who've never seen you face.

Now there's blood on your pillow
And it's hard to smell the air.
You've taken your place, exalted disgrace
And you still don't care.
And when there's no more money
You'll still find a way
Like a man giving his hand on his wedding day
To WHITE LACE.

WHITE LACE, nothing can take your place
WHITE LACE, now that you've had a taste
And the only men who ain't afraid
Are fools and those who've never seen you face.

Each day you say it's over
Each day a day goes by
Your thinking your free, then you finally see
That today's promise is tomorrow's lie.

WHITE LACE, nothing can take your place
WHITE LACE, now that you've had a taste
And the only men who ain't afraid
Are fools and those who've never seen you face.

WHITE LACE...

Liner notes
This song was written one late morning or early afternoon in the summer of 1979.  It was just starting to don on us about the "big lie".   Charlie Andrews was responsible for the line "today's promise is tomorrow's lie" - and a few other lines, come to think of it...

This recording was made at Atlantis Recording Studios in Tampa.  The recording session was a prize in a local song contest (we can't remember which song won the prize but it wasn't this one).  Performing on the session were Jim Lutz on bass (also known as James St. James of the band Zenith Nadir), Gary Tussing on the Cello, Tom Nordin on drums, timpani, xylophone and Kevin Stewart on acoustic guitar, electric guitars and vocals.

 

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs.  There's also a negative side."                        --Hunter S. Thompson
