Juliette And The Licks – Purgatory Blues lyrics

I thought I needed redemption but I let that thought go
I guess I'll cut my losses and turn my tricks at the magic show
You spin your wheels through time and get tired of the grind
I want to find a good man but instead I settle for what I find

Get it in throw in your cheap shots, cheap shot baby
Isn't that all life really is, a bunch of have nots
And the gods will laugh when you think you've found your lot
And take it all away

Redemption, redemption

There are no real innocents no matter whose side your on
Its a littered path to paradise honey that will always steer you wrong
Put your hands where I can see 'em
Put your hands next to mine
I wanted something to believe in before I got sold on the lie

Get it in throw in your cheap shots, cheap shot baby
Isn't that all life really is, a bunch of have nots
And the gods will laugh when you think you've found your lot
And take it all away

Redemption, oh purgatory, oh redemption, oh purgatory

Oh, isn't that all life really is a bunch of cheap shots
And you give it what you've got
You give it what you've got
And the gods will laugh when you think you've found your lot
And take it all away
They'll take it all away you fool
