Lyrics

Cold metal gate in her backyard
That’s where he played his fatal card
And he’s been crawling back to her
Ever since that day
He could call but she’s so far away

Driving to work she plays the part
Smiling hard with a broken heart
And she can’t name her enemy
But she’s angry just the same
Looking for a way out of the game
They’ve got nothing but the past to blame

All the gratitude that you can’t buy
Gonna come again and by and by
We won’t be down down down with all the waiting

All the time we get before we’re dead
Turn around now, honey look ahead
Before you’re down down down with all the waiting

Now we don’t sleep like we once did
A worried world makes a worried kid
And when she gets to Shangri-La
Takes a room and makes a bid
Gotta keep her safe
Wanna keep her hid
Slamming on the brakes only makes her skid

All the hurt you feel and don’t know why
Won’t erase the glimmer in her eye
Before you’re down down down with all the waiting
All the time we get before we’re dead
Turn around now, honey look ahead
Before we’re down down down with all the waiting



Now there’s blood in the water
For the lovers, the sisters and the daughters

The best lack all conviction
Cause the witness has gone cold
The worst are full of passion
For a throne that’s bought and sold

All the gratitude that you can’t buy
Gonna come again and by and by
We won’t be down down down with all the waiting

All the time we get before we’re dead
Turn around now, honey look ahead
Before we’re down down down with all the waiting
