Artist: T Bone Burnett
Album: Tooth Of Crime
We stood together in the open field
And heard the secret that the night revealed
Then we chased the lie
Racing through the sky
Can we untangle guilt or innocence?
How hard we torture this ambivalence
Night will bring no dawn
Where has power gone?
For I'll steal your dreams while you are sleeping
And sell them for dust and cheap lust
And I'll slit your hope while you are weeping
And wipe the blood clean with morphine
Be my queen
The wind howls the black clouds around the storm at sea
I'm dropping at too great a speed
Come closer to me on your hands and knees
Alone in the kill zone
How much is not enough, how much is through?
How long will I be getting over you?
How much grief and sin 'til a heart caves in?
'Til a heart caves in, 'til a heart caves in
