lyrics

she makes me sleep at night like a stone on the ground;
like i've driven 700 miles to the only stoplight in town.
she's got graveyard hips that move on cheap red wine.
lips that have kissed all those boys will make you do cold, hard time.

she puts on that lipstick, keeps you wondering what's underneath that dress.
she leaves the room without waving and leaves you wondering where she went.
she doesn't obey the law, she's got no sense of time.
she's got lovers on the north, east, west and south sides.

she'll tie you up in shackles, make you feel like she's been there before.
she can talk all night about heaven, crucifixion and the holy wars.
she keeps a sign on her door says she got no self control.
she's an ocean child could swallow any brave man's soul.

i have heard it all read every page between the lines.
i've got no sparkling diamond ring, got no car to drive.
i've got nothing to give you except what is in my mind.
let's set fire to the city and watch it burn down through the night.
