Eve’s Daughter

Amanda Shires
Lingua: Inglese



I was young
Spring had sprung
I wanted out of Alamogordo
Kept the party dress
In the glove compartment
Of my green-and-white Ford Bronco
A gust of wind
Came blastin' in
The gas station where I was workin'
He was twenty-three
He was on leave
And the rest gets a little blurry

Maybe it was circumstance
But I saw my chance and I took it
Through the sunset, shiftin' gears
To the somethin'-better shinin' diamond-clear
Shinin' diamond-clear

We didn't have much in common
But I had fallen
I was thirsty and he looked like water
When I started to show
He proposed
For a while we were in tall cotton
He started comin' home high
And then came the fights
And I did what I had to do

Through a sunset, shiftin' gears
To the somethin'-better shinin' diamond-clear
Lookin' for happy ever after
Forever and ever and ever and ever again

Started over
In Kansas City
Stayed too long at your Aunt Debbie's
A lotta workin' late
A little Section Eight
And the burden gets a little less heavy

Sometimes it was treadin' water
Guess it is sometimes for all Eve's daughters
Lookin' for happy ever after
Forever and ever and ever and ever again

Love showed up and I let him in
And if I had to do it all again

I'd hit the sunset, shiftin' gears
To the somethin'-better shinin' diamond-clear
I'd find my happy ever after Forever
And ever and ever and ever again
