Lyrics

Sworn on a Bible

Drew James © 2001

 

She takes the left turn off the hot road

Ands drives on through the barbwire maze

Four guards to pass with an innocent smile

She lives for these visiting days

 

She’s a new page in his story

A series that’s yet to be bound

Each chapter’s come to a similar end

Hidden so it cannot be found

 

And she swears her love on his bible

She'll love him till the moon’s lost its glow

Till all the birds have run out of songs

Till darkness is all that she knows

 

Plexiglas laced with cold steel

Joins in their welcome of hands

Religious words start to pour from his lips

He says only god can judge man

 

He cries that his past is remorseful

And he carries this burden in his heart

And true prison walls are that memory’s long

Coupled with life that’s so short

 

Chorus

 

The clock watchman signals one minute

As the visitor’s love is professed

She’ll return as his character witness

Parole hearing’s week after next

 

Then she’ll swear for him on a bible

And he’ll love her till the moon’s lost its glow

Till all the birds have run out of songs

Till darkness is all that she knows

Till darkness is all that she knows
