  • Lyrics:   Your French tongue in our southern town Your scarlet lips and eyes of brown I saw your silhouette in my gold headlights Flashed a drunken grin, asked “do you want a ride? In my baby blue Ford neither of us spoke On a long dirt road, dust clouds rose I turn the radio up, you rolled the windows down You said “where are we going?", I only laughed out loud (Chorus) A broken man with no one to talk to A broken heart with my eyes fixed on you But when you came around I put you in the ground And now I see myself again I clutched your pale throat, yelled “get the fuck out” Leaning over your body as you lay on the ground I whispered “everything fine” as I pulled your hair A silver blade sliced through the cold black air Red ribbons of blood slowly flowed into the mud As your soft cry ceased I picked you up And walked you into the woods where the pines trees sway Laid you in a pile of leaves and said “I’m sorry babe” Chorus Break Chorus The police found her body on a cool October morn Surrounded by lilies and crowned with thorns My town had a funeral, the priest said a prayer And while she was lowered I just smiled and stared
