Running Red Lights – Under The Wire lyrics

I thought my heart had seen it's last days
I gave up on giving it away
'Cause I was walking down a jilted lover's road
And there was no turning back'so I was told

No, there was no going back so I was told
Once the grip of hurting had it's hold
Those cold, shiver girls of stone
They crushed my heart and chilled my bones
It was burnt ash, black as coal
In my broken, high-heel-trampled soul
'Til there you were, like a river, babe
You carried all my blues away

Oh, your love came in under the wire

Drowned in a river of tears
I was played out beyond my years
The needle moved the record 'round the same old song
My body buried in the mud
I was almost dead, the trench was dug
I was waiting for the darkness to
Descend on me

But, while I was waiting on that goodbye train
Umbrella up, you fought the rain
You ushered me out of the cold
Baby, you saved my soul
You know

Oh, your love came in under the wire

Your love, your love, your love, your love, your love came in under the wire

Oh, your love came in under the wire
