Tight connection to my heart
Go ahead and talk.
Whatever you got to say to me
Won't come as any shock.
I must be guilty of something
You just whisper it into my ear
She lulled me to sleep.
In a town without pity
Where the water runs deep.
She said, 'Be easy baby.
There ain't nothing worth stealin' in here'
I'm gonna get my coat.
I feel the breath of a storm.
There's something I've got to do tonight,
You go inside and stay warm.
You're the one that's got the key
But I can't figure out whether I'm too good for you
Or you're too good for me
Well they're not showing any lights tonight
And there's no moon.
There's just a hot blooded singer
Singing 'Memphis in June'
And they're beatin' the devil out of a guy
Who's wearing a powder-blue wig.
Later he'll be shot for
I can still hear his voice crying
In the wilderness.
What looks large from a distance
Close up ain't never that big.
And call it wine
I never could learn to hold you, love
And call you mine.
You got a tight connection to my heart
