In a very short period of time, I will be buying a 12-string acoustic.

When I do, I shall play this song first -

Broken Bottle, by Alejandro Escovedo

If I could reveal what I feel for you
And mark my words with a gentle kiss
Like Saint George I'd slay the dragon
Just to find I'd lost

From outside these windows there's walls between us
And outside is outside and that's where I'll be
I'll be wrapped in the morning dew
Just to find you gone

So pour me a drink from the broken bottle
And fill my glass with the dirty water
What I've lost is gone what I've gained has no name
And I'll take my leave once more

Ah J'taime mon amour, Ah J'taime mon amour
Fools for love in any language
Sometimes get burned by the heat of beauty
Just to find she's gone

My love is a scar that I wear for you
Like a crown of thorns, like a bad tattoo
I wear sin like a ring of beauty
Just to find you've gone

So pour me a drink from the broken bottle
And fill my glass with the dirty water
What I've lost is gone what I've gained has no name
And I'll take my leave once more
