Suicide Alley (自杀者胡同) - Shawn Colvin (肖恩·科尔)

Wait for me by the banshee tree

Let me be your wailing companion

Pass 'em on by don't look 'em in the eye

Suicide Alley is callin'

 

You thought you were dreaming

You could wake up dead

And you'll never know what's real

 

All this damage is runnin' loose in your head

And it really matters to me

 

Oh no baby don't go

Walkin' down Suicide Alley

 

Oh no baby don't go

Walkin' down Suicide Alley

 

Downtown baby it's a million to one

You might as well name your poison

And stand in line by the exit sign

Suicide Alley is waiting

 

You're a loose cannonball on a sinking ship

From the belly of the beast shot from the hip

But you don't have to be going down the dark hall

You're not tied to the chair you're not nailed to the wall

Oh no baby don't go

Walkin' down Suicide Alley

 

Oh no baby don't go

Walkin' down Suicide Alley

 

Sitting naked by the window in the middle of the night

I can see you wearing your halo

If only in the daybreak of the dirty street light

I know baby wasn't born to follow

 

You know I wasn't born I was spat out at a wall

And nobody even knew my name

 

The sun hatched me out cradle and all

On the corner of First and Insane

For the souls of the departed and the renegades of love

You and me we gotta be all we dreamed of

In the ruins of mischief through the ravages of time

You got a place in this world of mine

Oh no baby don't go

Walkin' down Suicide Alley

 

Oh no baby don't go

Walkin' down Suicide Alley

 

Down Suicide
