lyrics

Come tape this pistol to my chest
it's the only way I know to hide a gun
it's been a week, babe, since we stopped to rest
but I guess that's how it is out on the run.

It's safer if we stick to country roads
where every little town looks the same
where every perfect house and every well cut lawn
reminds us that we just don't belong.

And it seems like such a long time since we
passed those old signs
for fireworks and discount cigarettes
soon the sun will rise on everything we leave behind
somewhere back there across state line.

I never meant for him to die
that night he learned that you'd been seeing me
and I swear I never even felt the blade
till I saw the blood pooling where he laid.

The road will mend our broken hearts as one
but back home they will never understand
but I promise, babe no one will ever know
that the knife ,babe, was in your hands.

And it seems like such a long time since we
passed those old signs
for fireworks and discount cigarettes
soon the sun will rise on everything we leave behind
somewhere back there across state line.

One day there will be a price to pay
for this woman that I stole
until that day I'll keep her close
and pray that God has mercy on my soul.
