Redemption

We drove all night to the borderline…
Took that blue moon right to town…
A clear shot for morning sky…
Winds offshore ‘bout to break us down…
A passion play and a double play… Running betrayed
You sent us heading trouble bound

CHORUS: 

         And I’m heading for redemption now…

         A little broke along the way…

         North of sixty, south of heaven

         In and out of your kind of love…   

         On the holiest of days

I’m praying to a bunch of gods…
Like a wise crackin’ silly ol’ fool…
Aiming to be the very best …
Lonesome lover and somewhat cool…
Singing a black hymn in the night… I painted sunlight
The color of the moon in your hair

Chorus…

Well, what’s for you, you said steal it…
What’s not for you, don’t you take a look …
The truth aside, things misfire …
Your crucifix tears like a hook…
Heart of the heart is the thinnest line… Your laughter, a sign
Like daddy’s old prayer book

Chorus……………Solo….

I got me a sale on Faith today…
Love and hate, they mean some thing…
Guess I’ll find me another lover…
Take him up like a shiny new thing…
Gods and heathens on the run… A temptation for none
and the foolish like me on the wing                 

Chorus
