lowlife lyrics – jude cole

sitting on the back porch
everybody be d*mned
head in your hands, no particular plans
but oh, so many thoughts and dreams unheard
words are nothing but words
words are nothing but words
see the little children rolling in the yard
and the sun goes down until it’s almost dark
and hear the train cry so many miles away
another train, another day
if you ever make your mind up
i know you will be somebody
i know part of you wants to be everybody
but don’t be afraid to fall, fall
mason got his, you know that he did
he put his greedy eyes right over the lid
and oh, the bomb went off right in his face
oh, he wears the scars with grace
but if you ever make your mind up
i know you will be somebody
i know part of you wants to be everybody
but don’t be afraid to fall
afraid to fall, afraid
[ solo ]
walking past the church
you make the sign of the cross
hey god, it wouldn’t cost you anything
to throw some light my way
you see, i’m a little low on life today
a little low on life today
low on life today
low on life today
low on life today
lowlife
lowlife
