Tatum Murray – Flood lyrics

Baby girl, I'm watching over you
And our mother told us what we cannot do
It's pouring down, it's taking over you
Thank God our mother told us what we cannot do

You've got the lines
You've got the makeup to make it out alive
Did you forget what water does to your crooked smile?
Wash it away and you're left with nothing
Nothing but a face
Thank God our mother taught us what we cannot erase

Climb up the ladder

Don't drop your eyes until you hit the top
It's scary up there if you don't say your prayers before you start to fall
People below you
You're sure they'll catch you
But you are wrong
Thank God your mother finally showed you where you belong

You've got the sad lies
You've got the bad guys on your side
And pretty girls that break my sister
To me she'll confideit's getting higher, it's my last chance now
Don't say no
Thank God our mother told us where you will go
