Description

LYRICS : I live out yonder where the snakes and scorpions run Got myself a little goldmine to bank on But one day my heart sank when I saw madame in town I knew her love would be the death of mine L'amour passait, l'amour obsolète Pourquoi perdre sa vie à chercher l'or d'un coeur? Je ne me noierai pas dans ce désert mystique Je ferme mes comptes et je repars Love is passé and love is obsolete Some spend their whole lives searching for a heart of gold I'm tired of treading water in this desert mystique I'm cashing in my chips before I ride Do me a favor while I'm hanging here Take this gold and go and hide (don't twist too hard darlin' on your hangin' rope) Don't worry I'll be free in no time She promised me she would be there when I'd return She didn't say she'd have a whole army there as well She whispered, "j'taime baby" as she fired that gun at me (it's getting late and I'm running out of time) I should've stayed way out yonder Better off with the scorpions and snakes Every act which has no heart will be found out in the end Guess I'm a little late this time 'Cause her love would be the death of mine Mine, all mine
