six o’clock news lyrics – kathleen edwards

copper on the corner and he loaded two rounds
and i can’t cross the line to talk you down
and peter, sweet baby, where’d you get that gun?
you spend half your life trying to turn the other half around

and i tried to come clean, but i guess its no use
your face is all over the six o’clock news
they cleared the streets and then they closed the schools
i can’t even get inside

did you lose your head when the farm went down?
or was it when your daddy died after he moved to town
and i know your mama calls you good for nothin’
she says her baby is a failer and she don’t want you callin’

and i tried to come clean, but i guess its no use
your face is all over the six o’clock news
they cleared the streets and then they closed the schools
i can’t even get inside

and peter, sweet baby, there’s just something that i gotta say to you
i’m gonna have your baby this coming june
we could get a little place down by gilmour park
you could do a little time and save my broken heart

and i tried to come clean, but i guess its no use
your face is all over the six o’clock news
they cleared the streets and then they closed the schools
i can’t even get inside

i tried to come clean, but i guess its no use
copper went ahead and he just shot you through
now you’re lying dead on the avenue
i can’t feel my broken heart

and i can’t feel my broken heart
