close call lyrics – rilo kiley

she was born on a brightened pier
to a gypsy mother and a bucket of tears
her good looks coulda sailed a ship
but her will alone coulda sunk it

funny thing about money for s*x
you might get rich
but you die by it

it’s gonna be a close call
gonna be a close call

tell me now what would you do
hanging back with the brutes
hustlin’ a pickpocket
that’s no way to get rich

it’s gonna be a close call
gonna be a close call
gonna be a close call
gonna be a close call

business woman with good sense
if you live at all, you’re gonna die by it
funny thing about money for s*x
you might get rich, but then…

it’s gonna be a close call
gonna be a close call
gonna be a close call
gonna be a close call
