Widow

Needles out west in the desert.

I was on my way to heaven

when she stung me with that stinger

sunk my plane into the sand, oh

somewhere in my sequence she sensed a weakness

hiding totally blind

i kissed her lips and she pulled me, deep inside

I got buried alive

 

oh you got me, I’m lost completely

yeah, have mercy

and my coffins been bought and they’re saving me a plot

since the moment that you turned me on

 

my bride in springtime and my widow in the fall

you know how it goes when you bet and lose it all

 

Lightning split the cross of the tiny chapel spooked the horse

felt the ring twist round my finger like a snake (it was so cold).

going black and white, then the fastest kodachrome

dash cams red lights and cameraphones

rolling six to nine, nearly every time, doing ninety

Soaring up to the gallows looking over

no savior in sight, 

they opened up the floor and i took a ride 

oh oh

now it’s knock knock knock

from this old pine box

in a drop dead suit looking hugo boss,

no one could see your eyes through your veil

but i know you were smiling

 

oh you got me, I’m lost completely

yeah, have mercy

and my coffins been bought and they’re saving me a plot

since the moment that you turned me on

 

my bride in springtime and my widow in the fall

you know how it goes when you bet and lose it all

2x

 

Buried in our souls

it’ll never grow old

when you move your hips

the past comes alive

i’ll come back a man

with animal eyes

flashing at you darling

from the back of the line

 

my bride in springtime and my widow in the fall

you know how it goes when you bet and lose it all

2x
