Black Star Riders - Bloodshot Lyrics




Just before the sun comes up
And floods the wailing wall
She makes love to forget herself
He makes love to recall
There’s a trail of total carnage
In the rear view when he looks
There’s a tale of fear and loathing
In each chapter of this book

So give me something to celebrate
No matter what the cost
There’s a battle raging inside of us
When emerald eyes are lyin’
They’re bloodshot

The damage isn’t visible
When she shines a naked flame
The story barely credible
But he tells it justthe same
He talks of far off promised land
Every time he comes around
He whispers darling bend your knees
Before we hit the ground

So give me something to celebrate
No matter what the cost
There’s a battle raging inside of us
When emerald eyes are lyin’
They’re bloodshot

You know he’s got it easy
She just sits down and waits
While arrows land on bloody skin
Beyond the city gates
He’d have made the journey with her
But he got the needle stuck
She’s running out of time
He’s running out of luck

Someday it all may come to pass
Someday a journey’s end
Bright light city memories
Of lovers and old friends
There’s a snowstormon the table
A carpet made of glass
There’s a heartbeat like a kick drum
There’s a viper in the grass
So give me something to celebrate
No matter what the cost
There’s a battle raging inside of us
When emerald eyes are lyin’
They’re bloodshot

  1. Alan Lloyd

    cool song. this band has taken forever to grow on me. not a huge fan of the singer's voice. i always think "this guy sounds like , or is trying to sound like Jon Bon Jovi"... of course the chord sequences are rehashed, but whatever, i am really into this band now. they have a few songs from each album that i think are great... the title tracks are always great and seem to get better with each album. i love title tracks
