Powderfinger – Ballad Of A Dead Man lyrics

Run little rabbit, can't break the habbit for none
Shapes like a rocket and shoots like a pocket gun
Every mothers son has spent a lifetime on the run

One by one and two by two
Our hearts beat a rhythm true
Wave goodbye now baby blue
You're exploding like a star into the gloom

I thought I could shut you in
You said 'Babay let me out'
I thought that I could pick you up and roll you like a dice

There's hitchhikers thumbingon the verge of the lovers highway
But we just roll on by with the top down, the sun's out
I'm so glad when you came along you happened to be going my way
The wheels roll round and round

One by one and two by two
Our hearts beat a rhythm true
Wave goodbye now baby blue
You're exploding like a star in the room

I thought I could shut you in
You said "come on pull me out"
I thought that I could pick you up and roll you like a dice
When I'm close to you, I could feel it coming in, here they come
They're coming one by one coming two by two
They're coming one by one coming two by two

Yeah, if I ever let you down
If anything should come to bleed you dry or cut you out
Don't turn me away
Yeah I never meant to spin you round
If anybody comes to do you harm or pin you down
I'll take your place
