about

A collaboration with DJ Preach. Preach also did a great remix of American Dirt from my previous record, Matthew Ryan Vs The Silver State. Just google American Dirt DJ Preach to give that a listen as well.

If you're tired of feeling took now Darling
I say we burn it down
Cause nothing's worth the tears you're crying
Without water you can drown

You shiver and you shake
You take what you can take
Come down now you're on fire
It's cold and it's getting dark
It's getting harder to make a spark
We're lost but we're not liars

(everything I want, everything I have...)

So we'll say hey, hey, hey woo hoo
We'll say hey, hey, hey woo hoo

The lines are getting long now Darling
Time is getting short
The sun is dim
& the moon is rising
Like a pool of dirty water

You shiver and you shake
You take what you can take
Come down now you're on fire
It's cold and it's getting dark
It's getting harder to make a spark
We're lost but we're not liars

(everything I want, everything I have...)

So we'll say hey, hey, hey woo hoo
We'll say hey, hey, hey woo hoo

We never should have come here Darling
It's all mines and booby traps
There's something in the way we're living
That smiles and whispers behind our backs

We'll say hey, hey, hey woo hoo
(everything I want, everything I have...)
So we'll say hey, hey, hey woo hoo

We never
We never
We never should
We never
We never
We never should
Have
We never should
Come here
Come here
We never should
Come here
Come closer darling
