Jon Allen – No One Get's Out Of Here Alive lyrics

I don’t care who you are, if you’ve got a name
Don’t you know I take every soul the same
Just like Bonnie just like Clyde
No one gets out of here alive

So you’re young and pretty and you’re on parade
But whatcha gonna do when that big band’s played
Ain’t no use you making those eyes
No one gets out of her alive

You look at me and think that I’m the devil
Don’t you know that I’m your only friend

You can spend your days trying to chase the wind
You can tell pretty lies but you just can’t win
Cause just as sure as you arrived
No one gets out of here alive

Don’t you know that your folks once were just like you
There was always grass greener back then too
So baby don’t act so surprised
No one gets out of here alive

Can’t you see you’re staring down the barrel
Can’t you see you’re running out of time

So get a round and let the barman fill em’ up
Cause one day that coin’s gonna find your cup
Sure as the night and the black crow flies
No one gets out of here alive

Slow down baby where’da ya think you’re going
Outside’s just the desert and the ghosts

Nobody wants to make the best of what they’ve got
Everyone’s holding out for the graveyard slot
But they’ll be no encore, no reprise
No one gets out of here alive
