Saving Grace

Text & musik: Johan Bohlin

I remember what she said
when I stuck by her side,
the night lit up with the fire in her eyes,
she said remember child

they say the streets
are paved with gold
all i see are hordes of people
waiting to be sold

there’s nothing worse
than staying in line
keep the motor running
like bonnie and clyde

in a 144 with the engines tuned
we were sharp enough to cut the world in two
we were breaking through

the road and the wind left marks of dirt
I was loose, clean, dumb and free of hurt
as I crashed and burned

running away, lost track of the days
in the shadow of her saving grace

I never got used, to her deviant ways
where’s the fire that blazed?
can’t keep up the pace,
always too late
I’m counting the days,
until I’ll be home again

they say the streets
are paved with gold
i’m one of you lonely people
waiting to be sold

now there’s nothing left
i’m staying in line
but we kept the motor running
like bonnie and clyde
