Heat Lightning Lyrics - St. Paul & The Broken Bones


Did you hear the son of God tell you what he wants?
Was it just a lighting bolt hurried from the sky?
Take your gun to the house bury it out back
Don't tell a soul what you did and never come again

He failed like you always said he would

Cops are here, now you run, don't tell them what you did
It's not fair to take a life from someone innocent
Wish I could just tell you, child, "I love you with all my heart"
But now you're buried underground, eaten by the worms

He failed like you always said he would

Death, it smells of rain

Daddy told me I would raise a child just like him
Now I am stuck in sinking sand trying to forget
