Lyrics

Partner In Crime

I’ll drive the getaway car you can ride shotgun

We’ll hole up ‘cross the county line like outlaws on the run

If you let me steal your heart

Like you stole mine

I could be your you could be my…

Partner in crime

 

You made the list of most wanted in a Soho dive

You’re guilty of a crime of passion

I’ll be your victim the rest of my life

If you let me steal your heart

Like you stole mine

I could be your you could be my…

Partner in crime

 

I’ll drive the getaway car you can ride shotgun

We’ll hole up ‘cross the county line like outlaws on the run

If you let me steal your heart

Like you stole mine

I could be your you could be my…

Partner in crime

 

If you let me steal your heart

Like you stole mine

I could be your you could be my…

Partner in crime

 

Star

You know what’s like to be all alone

At a felt-lined table with your money blown

And your down to your last few cents

Croupier says baby place your bet

You’ve come too far to just walk away

Start again in some other place

That’s not how you play the game

That ain’t how your gonna make your name

Gotta feelin’ it’s gonna be alright

Gonna roll the dice roll the dice

 

Your star’s gonna shine (x4)

Yeah, there comes a time

Your star’s gonna shine

 

You made yourself a promise tonight

There ain’t a wrong you can’t make right

You’re gonna be the change be the bright light

Or you’re gonna go down tryin’

You’ve lost a lot but not your nerve

You could fill up a book with all you’ve learned

You took a big step back from the brink

Cause you know it don’t matter what anyone thinks

It’s don’t matter what anyone thinks

>chorus (x2)<

 

Ragged

This morning I woke half drunk

Got up got myself home

My head feels like it’s been split wide

By a C&O freight train

Left you in bed asleep

Just to cover my retreat

Couldn’t face one more conversation

About giving you my name

Lately I’m so much more Abel than Cain

 

Worn ragged

Lost inside the thought stuck in my head

Worn ragged

Can’t take back the things I never said

 

There’s little comfort in

Old desires or drinking

But the loneliness will make ya second guess

On a Sunday afternoon

So I just drop by for one

But the evening is still young

And home don’t feel as much like home

As a dimly lit barroom

These days life plays like a guitar out of tune

>chorus<

You give yourself like a mercenary can’t get used to ordinary

And ya think you’re damned if ya do or if ya don’t

>chorus<

This morning I woke half drunk

Got up got myself home

My head feels like it’s been split wide

By a C&O freight train

 

100 Year Flood

I want to watch the water rise

Like it does only once in a lifetime

Want you to wash over me

Out of control raging and deep

I want to drown

With you right now

 

Let the river carry me

I want to get swept up get swept downstream

Want to know the rush of your love

Like a 100-year flood

I want to feel the levee break

Steel myself stand and wait

As that wall of water comes

Like a 100-year flood

 

Take me where I’ve never been

Drag me under again and again and again

Til I’ve got no strength left

Til I come up gasping for breath

I want to drown

With you right now

>chorus<

I want to watch the water rise

Like it does only once in a lifetime…

>chorus<

 

Mary Believe

The cross you carry weighs on my mind

I’d kneel to wash your feet but the river’s run dry

The sins that gather like dust on the sill

Aren’t so quickly wiped away they linger still

Look at me tell me what you see

Your slave to redemption

Your constant sympathy

Mary believe…

 

Can’t sweep away the past like leaves off the porch

Can’t bend the iron without a flame in the forge

Miscellaneous things confuse good with bad

Make you question what you thought you had

Look at me tell me what you see

Your slave to redemption

Your constant sympathy

Mary believe…

 

The cross I carry weighs on your mind

Feel like a drifter tryin’ to hitch a ride

On a long stretch of highway but no-one slows down

Don’t think I can make it to the next town

Look at me tell me what you see

Your slave to redemption

Your constant sympathy…

 

Mary believe

and lay back down beside me

C’mon Mary believe

Someday soon it gets easy

Mary believe

and lay back down beside me

C’mon Mary believe

Someday soon it gets easy

C’mon Mary believe
