Sticky Fingers – Tongue & Cheek lyrics

Coming in cheap
With the beast out running
Pretty girl I think you're stunning
I'd like to take you home
But I fell out my throne
I never had a place to go
The water is free but the taps stopped running
Pretty girl I think you're stunning
Just suck it in tongue and cheek

Because the river runs deep
Yes the river runs deep

I took all my name
I decided to tell
I'd take my own life
Just to see you in hell
But I'm alive
Nobody heard you fell
So I threw you a line
Down a dark wishing well
I heard a noise draw dark aloof
I'm blind but better off than you my friend
But I will need you in the end
A blur got sharp and loud and true
My minds made up, I'm here for you my friend
'Cause you will need me in the end

'Cause I will need you in the end
Will need you in the end
Immortal air in a fresh cool morning
I need to be there when you wake
To the sound of me speaking peace
For the devil in your sleep
Haunted by the ghost of the man I used to be

Birds fly away into the clouds of unknowing
Titans of Aphrodite they show not when you're coming
'Cause you suck it in tongue and cheek

Because the river runs deep
Yes the rivers runs deep
The river runs deep
With all honesty
Yes the river runs deep
But I tell you my friend
The river runs deep
