The Gun Club – Up Above The World lyrics

I'm here up above the world
Looking down on the river black
Ready to take a great swan dive
'cause you're never coming back
I'm here up above the world

I always have to start all over
When I decide I should live
I won't be cheated anymore
'cause there's nothing left to give
I'm here up above the world

We almost started something
That you saw fit to take away
Something so close to my heart
Something near me every day
I'm hear up above the world

I'm here

Forever you were my sister
But you took my heart in chains
The worst was when you broke them
I cannot live with the pain
I'm here up above the world

I'm here

It's lonely here in the freezing dawn
The ships come in through the London fog

The builders there are tearing up my street
The ambulance roars
It makes the sound I weep
I'm here up above the world
Looking down at the river red
Trying to bet my prayer
At the foot of my lonely bed
I'm here up above the world

Since I'll no longer be living
You'll have to answer my mail
Explain it all to the papers
That I bought my ticket for hell
There down below the world
