lyrics

Darkness For This Deed

Daddy always told me
I was destined
To rule this world
Like a loaded gun

Now I know
He wasn’t foolin’
‘I’ve done something
Can’t be undone

I was walking
Down these new streets
Towards the tracks
He was taking a ride

Wind from the train
Blew my hair
He made me laugh
And I stepped inside

It’s nothing new it’s the same old story
Written down for all to read
It don’t come with fame or glory
You get darkness for this deed
There’s only darkness for this deed

He taught me to laugh
With a wild freedom
On those evenings
In my time of need

I taught him to dance
In that smoky dancehall
He watched my hips
And followed my lead

We started out
Driving through the forest
Along the river
Towards the open fields

But later on
With the sun flooding down
Over our bodies
My fate was sealed

It’s nothing new it’s the same old story
Written down for all to read
It don’t come with fame or glory
You get darkness for this deed
There’s only darkness for this deed

By the end of the summer
I began to show
I went to my husband
and lied so he would never know

It’s nothing new it’s the same old story
Written down for all to read
It don’t come with fame or glory
You get darkness for this deed
There’s only darkness for this deed
