lyrics

until we sink
jonny burke (dedpan music, bmi)

for sixteen years i told'em my name
small town, fall down, fortune and blame
so i split like a lip, i was still just a kid
cut to the south like a ball and chain

my whole life help me, i been so restless
wanted everyday to feel like christmas
all i ever got was a crack on my back
from my father when he'd drink upon the devil's water

ended up in mobile, ended up in low deals
hard town, let down, rock cocaine
i pled to the county and i pled to the lord
bubbled in the gulf on an oil-rig gang

back on the land i was taken by the hand
in a burned-out cottage out by the airport
all i could see was the gold in her teeth
when i told her i been waitin for a girl like her

bone the muscle, muscle to bone
that's the way i'm bound to jane
she loves me when my money's all gone
but something's got to change

jane's been cryin forty-seven days
bad dreams, gulf-stream, screamin at the bay
the cash makes sounds and the angels sing
if i lose my baby will i lose my way?

i heard her like a banshee wailin on the hillside
i'm hard up here sweatin in the clink
but i'll meet her down at the ocean at low tide
dance in the sand until we sink
dance in the sand until we sink
dance in the sand until we sink
