BORROWED TIME

Spencer Bohren, 2010

Snakes crawl at night, wild dogs howl in the moonlight.
The wind, it moans and whispers, just one hour past midnight.
Down here by the border, ain’t hard to cross the line.
But every dog has his day, and tomorrow is mine.

- REFRAIN -
Living on borrowed time, anyone can read the signs.
Living on borrowed time, but tomorrow is mine!

Everyone has a secret. You gonna reap what you sow.
I was born to good luck, but I’m standing on my tiptoes
‘Cuz the water is rising, and the night is deep.
I’m out on a limb and I can’t sleep.

- REFRAIN -

Could be the Devil’s dream, might be the Promised Land.
But when the River of Hope turns to a river of sand,
Heaven knows the ending. Please give me some kind of clue.
I work my fingers to the bone, but my heart is true.

For crying out loud! Read between the lines.
It’s now or never. It ain’t your fault or mine.
The road never ends, but it’s downhill from here.
This is the real deal, and there ain’t nothing to fear.

- REFRAIN -
