Lyrics

I’d do anything to lose myself again in your dark waters
I’d give anything to have you in my arms again

Sixty years; we were just girls
But every time I think of you, the memories swirl
I’m a widow now, grandchildren race through my home
But the images well up those few times I’m alone

That pinstriped suit, your slicked-back hair
First time I saw you I couldn’t speak, just stare
I knew I was tasting a forbidden fruit
They’d kill us both if they knew the truth

But I’d do anything to lose myself again in your dark waters
I’d give anything to have you in my arms again

Those sultry days, my brother’s car
We dreamed up a plan to get away from them all
Up to the city, where we knew there were others
We never even realized our secret had been discovered

They hunted you down; they tore your skin
They punished you for both our sin
One crucial question I still can’t assess:
Was it because of your colour or because of your sex?

I’d do anything to lose myself again in your dark waters
I’d give anything to have you in my arms again

You crawled to me, not a word was said
We raced to my brother’s car, his bullets racing overhead
We gunned it to the unfinished bridge as he was gunning behind
I said “I’ll love you forever,” you said “Baby, drop and drive”

A squeal, a crash, an endless fall
You holding me tight throughout it all
I came up from the stillness, thrilled to be alive
Until I understood only one had survived

I’d do anything to lose myself again in your dark waters
I’d give anything to have you in my arms again
I’d do anything to lose myself again in your dark waters
I’d give anything to have you in my arms again
I’d do anything
