Whispering in the Moonlight

Drew James © 2011

 

Eyes of a thief

Heart of a stranger

Poison poured into a wise guy's wine

After the deal he collapsed at the wheel

Winner take all and a car to steal

 

Bagged and gagged

Trembling in silence

Royal flush still in his hand

A carnival punk and a waterfront drunk

Stole the gambler's car and locked him in the trunk

 

They were whispering in the moonlight

In their sad romantic dance

He came along with a sawed off shotgun

And she just came along for the laughs

 

Shadowed fields

Split by the highway

Headlights burning through the cold dark night

Lowjack trace turned a license plate

Radar gun and a high speed chase

 

(Chorus)

 

Blood on the keys

Hollow tomorrows

Flowers of innocence burning bright

Together they died like Bonnie and Clyde

And the coroner ruled it as a suicide

 

(ChorusX2)
