Sisters Of Mercy – A Rock And A Hard Place lyrics

And she came to look for me
Sold me name and innocence
Took my key
And told me to follow her
Down from igor with her bangles and her reference
One from the church from the valley of the
Well she wanted a haven and a place to hide
So I gave her an alibi took her inside but

A rock and a hard place await for for me
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Everything I ever did right or wrong
Hid out of sight where I belong, belong

And I didn't have the heart to tell her
And there wasn't a part of me that
Didn't want to say goodbye but

Cause and effect go hand in hand with
The devil may care but I don't mind and I
Thought she'd never quite understand so I
Left her there that night but will she
Find me? I don't think so, no
When you go, you go alone
And I'm gone.............
Far away [x4]

And I didn't have the heart to tell
And there wasn't a part of me that
Didn't want to say goodbye but...

Chorus [to fade]
