lyrics

Big sky way out of the city
Hanging over passing cars
Shadows all around the bedroom
Knowing every inch by heart

Fingers working on a signal
Tapping at the window pane
Voices early in the morning
Begging for forgiveness in this dark age

Couldn’t read couldn’t write
Couldn’t make it through the night
But you know when he goes
You could make a little money

On the side in the town
Where the sin is all around
In the shadows in the dark
You could take it all apart

Big sky all around your shoulders
Falling out of aeroplanes
Finger pulling on a trigger
Feeling like a tidal wave

But you know when he comes
He will take you in his arms
There is room in his heart
But you don’t know where to start

So you beg for his love
But it never is enough
On your knees by his side
With his fingers in your mouth
In your mouth

In the end, in the end
When the world goes dark
When the sirens fade
And the cars are gone
When you’ve said it all and your lips are dry
I will throw my body at your feet and cry

In the end, in the end
When the world goes dark
When the sirens fade
And the cars are gone
When you’ve said it all and your lips are dry
I will throw my body at your feet and cry

When the world goes dark
When the world goes dark
When the world goes dark
When the world goes dark
