Killing Time

I need your confidence
need to know you’re mine
when it gets right down
to the killing time
I know you’re heart is bad
but it’s all I’ve ever had
we can live our lives
on this righteous crime
I got kicked when I was down
and a sailor took my girl to town
then she licked my wounds
with the sea dog’s salt
I drank half a bottle of jack
swore I’d never take you back
by the bottle’s end
I was on that phone
What you call compromise
I don’t understand
What you call compromise
I don’t understand
How do you walk away
How do you walk away
How do you walk away from a woman
that gone and done you wrong?
