postcard from texas lyrics – disappear fear

(4: 12)
this is my postcard from texas
what are the chances this town won’t wreck us?
there is a woman, there always is
she’s standin’ on the side of the stage
beckoning motionless
and my legs get weak
and my heart beats fast
and i thought the love we had
was built to last
and my thoughts take off
where my hands want to go
and i know and i know and i know
baby believe me
baby believe me
i didn’t do nothin’!
there’s a strange black bird here
which is mostly tall
makes a sound like an ambulance
that’s her mating call
she sings a warning in the cold night air
she’s out in the distance
she should be sleeping
but i can still hear her.
i’m steppin’ out of a dream into a steamy car
and we huddle for safety at the cannibal bar
how far can i run away from this ring on my finger?
is there a place where we can go to
shed our fear like clothes
and make love new?
