’52 ford lyrics – murder by death

Loading...

i hit the road in a ’52 ford
a pack of matches
and a postcard on the dashboard
the sun was set
the gas gauge was low
and it was time to go

i met the girl at a juke joint on the fly
needed a friend the day my mother died
her place was hot and it smelled of sin
i guess when one life goes another begins

hey now, what you gonna do?
got a fiver in your pocket
and a switchblade in your boot
hey now what you gonna say
to make it go away?

i found the city by the mark on the stamp
studied it under the light of a hotel lamp
i found his work, i found their home
i waited until i knew she was alone
i didn’t want the child to see life
i justified that it wounded my pride
my mind was set that no one could know
the girl had to go

hey now, what you gonna do?
got a fiver in your pocket
and a switchblade in your boot
hey now what you gonna say
to make it go away?

hey now, what you gonna do?
got a fiver in your pocket
and a switchblade in your boot
hey now what you gonna say
to make it go away?

light stumbled in
through a crack in the shades
reflected off of the edge of my blade
as i reached for the girl
with the knife in my hand
i thought “i guess the kid deserves a chance”
her man came in as i started to go
my last intentions; how could he know?
the blade sunk deep into my skin
i guess when one life goes another begins
