lyrics

I was gonna get away
I was gonna get away
When that one bullet spun me round
And I let my lover lay, I let my lover lay me down

In that abandonned place
Weary from the chase
I sunk my face into the dirt
And I felt my lover loose, I felt my lover loose my shirt

Young and laden down with all my kit
I crossed the oceans like my father did
To kill another man
To kill another man
And rinse my hands in foreign ground
Till I let my lover lay, I let my lover lay me down

South Australia in the summer time
When all the beaches felt like hers and mine
I said I'd be home in a month or six
And spun her hair around my fingertips

She took me by the belt
She took me by the belt
With words that felt like sacred vows
And I let my lover lay
I let my lover lay
I let my lover lay
I let my lover lay me down
