I Spent a Lifetime (She Never Lived on the Rocks)

from by Mike Desmond's Dead Horse



I spent a lifetime babe,
searching for the sea
and even tho i love my sugar
i can't seem to name this peace

i said live on babe
we're gonna find that gold
she even walked on the waves my sugar
i can't seem to name this war

why can't i wake on the long walk
evil can live like a guest
i think i'll even the railroad
if my sugar baby wish... oh

the weeks weave on i guess
her mind seems like a throne
i seem to live on regret woman
but i see the serpent shores

we gonna walk on the sand some
we gonna take our rest
she gonna pour me some
sugar baby the best

somebody stole the weather
i think ill just row forever

the months weave on i guess
the waters roadless roads
i think i row my best
when the anchor's low

we didn't fear all the weather
never envied the water
never mean to the feathers
of fate and sugar

breeze without walls aint dangerous
hail without falls painless

i stepped on the war sand
even to live like a man
i didn't even know it
she never loved on the rocks

the salt dries my bones
i can't feel my breath
sew me to your soul mama
the water makes us rich

like silver and gold
the salt dries my soul
she didn't live on the rocks
we didn't live on the rocks

yeah i aint fallin war
silver and gold
turn on everyone
turnin those rocks into gold
