Crooked Fingers – Twilight Creeps lyrics

Hey Hey there she goes now she's walking down the street again
Shuffling down the sidewalk scuffing up her brand new shiny leather shoes
And all the stray digs they hissing out cause they all wonder where she's
Going to
As early evening light keeps her shadow out of sight
Sleeping soft hidden from view
Why does everybody always act so tough when all anybody wants is to find a
Why does everybody try to hide the heart that hidden has no use
Now some say sometime late in the evening light
You can see them shining dancing now with the greatest of ease
And some say they're faking maybe breaking down
Afraid to cut themselves loose from some big daddys leash

Hey Hey there you go now baby
Dancing all alone in your room
Trading gossip with the twilight creeps
Killing the flowers that were planted for you

You say someday you gonna float away
Take yourself some kind of holiday
Hey Hey aint no use--no trying to make you stay

Flower don't dig so deep so you don't go anywhere
Cause when the sun is done and evening comes
The thieves will run to steal your pretty withering love
Flower don't dig so deep you get in over your head
Cause if the morning comes you can breathe you can run
And keep alive your withering love

Why does everybody always act so tough when all anybody wants is to find a
Why is everybody always trying to hide the heart that hidden has no use
Now you can fake it and you can break it and you can shake it down
And cut yourself loose from some daddys leash
Or in the evening light you can keep that shadow out of sight
And sleep it off hidden from view
