Words and Music by Deppe

lyrics

Four silver dollars on the table cloth
mixed with the ashes of a gypsy moth.
It’s all for nothing, now the baby’s lost.
I heard them singing for Pentecost.

She wouldn’t listen to what I had to say.
This town is evil, it kills you if you stay.
It leaves a scar, like a cancelled wedding day.
I light the fires, then I walk away.

You were the lucky one who got away.
Ah, you were the lucky one who got away.
Yeah, you were the lucky one who got away.
Ah, you were the lucky one. You got away.

The rain is pounding on a wooden door.
Her clothes and bottles scattered on the floor.
The wounded memory of a heart that lost.
I heard them singing for Pentecost.

He wouldn’t listen to what I had to say.
Just live the lies of the ones who think and pray.
It leaves a scar, like a stupid holiday.
I light the fires, and then I walk away.

You were the lucky one who got away.
Yeah, you were the lucky one who got away.
Ah, you were the lucky one who got away.
Ah, you were the lucky one. You got away.
