lyrics

A Thousand Times


My clue lady luck I dance half wrong
As the train cracks the station bell and the morning rolls along
But I’m a sight to see
As the king of the night in my infamy

And for all I know I’ll have to burn a thousand times
In her eyes to empty out my head and realize
I only want to hold my hand up to her heart and say
Never again will I pretend that I could know the only way

My barefoot angels fight the dogs
And carry light back from the dawn
To save the music curled up crying
With the money in her arms
She just wants one more song
Before the spirits, the rain and the lights go on

And for all I know I’ll have to burn a thousand times
In her eyes to empty out my head and realize
I only want to hold my hand up to her heart and say
Never again will I pretend that I could know the only way
