Feeling rife with satisfaction, I paint it black,
hours, minutes, seconds, let it bleed as tears go by.
Time waits for no one, she’s so cold - no looking back;
wild horses in my veins and I’m a fool to cry.
Hours, minutes, seconds, let it bleed. As tears go by,
can’t you hear me knocking, Heaven? Gimme shelter!
Wild horses in my veins and I’m a fool to cry ~
sweet brown sugar is waiting for me to melt her!
Can’t you hear me knocking? Heaven, gimme shelter,
sympathy. For the devil shattered paradise,
sweet brown sugar is waiting for me to melt her.
Life, a beast of burden - shooting my tumbling dice.
Sympathy for the devil shattered paradise.
Waiting on a friend; sister morphine. I’ll miss you
life. A beast of burden shooting my tumbling dice,
it’s all over now, give the damn devil his due.
Waiting on a friend. Sister morphine, I’ll miss you.
Time, waits for no one. She’s, so cold... No looking back;
it’s all over now. Give the damn devil his due,
feeling rife with satisfaction. I paint it black.
