twelve steps down lyrics – amie comeaux

(april holbrook/n. mcelroy)

i tried to give up on love
’cause i knew i should
no matter how hard i tried
it didn’t do me no good

i just stopped cold turkey
what else could i do
there were pieces of my heart all over town
and i was runnin’ out of blue

i was feelin’ okay
when i got out of bed
but what i saw outside my window
was like a kick in the head

my hands started shakin’
i felt the cold chills begin
when i saw that truck pull up
now look who’s movin’ in

he lives twelve steps down
in the apartment below
he’s got what it takes to tempt a woman
body and soul
and if i fall i ain’t got far to go
slidin’ around
i’m losin’ ground
he lives twelve steps down

i tried to get a better look
so i sneaked downstairs
and just three steps from the bottom
i saw him standing there

ain’t it just my luck
he says he wants to be my friend
he set two gl*sses on the table
now he’s invitin’ me in

and he lives twelve steps down
in the apartment below
he’s got what it takes to tempt a woman
body and soul
and if i fall i ain’t got far to go
slidin’ around
i’m losin’ ground
he lives twelve steps down

he lives twelve steps down
in the apartment below
he’s got what it takes to tempt a woman
body and soul
and if i fall i ain’t got far to go
slidin’ around
i’m losin’ ground
he lives twelve steps down

slidin’ around
i’m losin’ ground
he lives twelve steps down
twelve steps down
