lyrics

Now let me tell you something
Before you state your case today
Anyone in this broke down town
Could see you're trouble from a mile away
But I can't leave a puzzle alone
And everyone's gotta get paid

Babe you've been living out of nightclubs
And they all miss your when you're gone
Soon they say your stormy eyes turn to ice
Sweet red wine lips to poison
I lit your cigarette
I cashed out on your con

I can't let go of the chase
Though the lights are going out
Darkness hiding her face

The case cracks and suddenly
I move with the chaos
spinning around me

And i'm blacking out

Don't touch me cause i'll blink
Every missed clue is adding pain
How many did you leave
Mad in the thunder and falling rain

Don't say a word your siren song
Has me staring down a train
If I'll escape this mystery
I can't run to you again

But I can't outrun it this time
Unprepared by so many years
Of passions and crimes

I know just where this road leads
Sideways rain falling around
And right through me

And I'm blacking out

I'll see you in the black
Down where the river meets the earth
I'll see you soon now
Unless you didn't get there first
