Status Quo – Dead In The Water lyrics

She's got to run, she's got to hide
She's got her head stuck in a sand dune
She never thinks, she never tries
She doesn't see that she's gonna pull through

She used to laugh, she used to cry
She used to play hot as the others
She used to fool, she used to fight
She loved a wind-up on a Saturday night

Don't you break down, dead in the water
Don't you leave town now, though you wanna
Don't you break down, dead in the water
Dead in the water

He is the one, he has the smile
Keeping his cool across the dance floor
He moves around, he moves away
They move together the rest of the night

He hits the spot, she fits the bill
He tries it on, maybe she wants to
He books a room, a takeaway
Is this the answer to all of their problems?

Don't you break down, dead in the water
Don't you leave town now, though you wanna
Don't you break down, down in the water

The longest day must end, but that's another time
Perhaps another life, we may be here again
The longest day must end, we take it as we find
But if we never try we may be here again

The longest day must end, we take it as we find
But if we never try we may be here again

She's waking up, she's in a dream
The world is gone, left her to wonder
Did it begin? When will it end?
She can't believe that it didn't come true

She needs to laugh, she needs to cry
She needs to play hot as the others
She used to fool, she used to fight
She loved a wind-up on a Saturday night

Don't you break down dead in the water
Don't you leave town now though you wanna
Don't you break down
Dead in the water
Dead in the water
