lyrics

brown paper bag
why do I carry you?
when all you live to do
is bring me down
brown paper bag
inside the envelope
with the poem you wrote
telling me no

but friend why won't you stay
and search with me for grace?
for the gallows won't be saved from your weight
if the Sheriff has his way
I've seen it in his eyes
I know his evil kind
maybe a heart of gold inside,
but babe it's lost if it's hard to find
so I’m holding onto you
and this brown paper bag

Sheriff wanna call shots,
tie the knots
justice costs to much for him
so in a play where justice lost to lust
did all the lawmen trade gold for rust again?
must have been hard for him
but a harder skin is needed when
deeds in dim light starve two of oxygen
still Sheriff thinking he gonna win, gonna profit then
I guess we living in the Wild West
living in the Wild West
this place is the wildest
living in the Wild West
could it be that
this man is a tumble-weed on windy tracks
baby don’t listen he’s holding you back
he got the guns but his bullets are blank
he can only hurt you if you let him
now I’m sweating, don’t you get it
living life with a curfew
looking back on this moment I know that you’re gonna regret it
staring at me, (you) put your hand in your pocket
you take out the letter that tells me to stop it
tells me drop it
but baby I can’t
baby I won’t let you die
trapped in his hands

brown paper bag
why do I carry you?
when all you live to do
is bring me down
brown paper bag
inside the envelope
with the poem you wrote
telling me no

my friend why won't you stay
and search with me for grace?
for the gallows won't be saved from your weight
if the Sheriff has his way
I've seen it in his eyes
I know his evil kind
maybe a heart of gold inside,
but babe it's lost if it's hard to find
so I’m holding onto you
and this brown paper bag

I'll always carry you
with nothing else to do
but try
