Yer Ropes

This song is by Giant Sand and appears on the album Selections Circa 1990-2000 (2001).

They say the past is broken
But only if you want to live like most
They say this plave is haunted
But only by a ghost

Either way angel
You can earn your wings
By living on both coasts
Seldom is the silence broken
Except by the few and fortunate to boast

Hanging by a thread
Well out on the ropes

Well you have enough to hang you
But you know better than to stand still
All your lovers can remain here
But I guess you never will
There's so much left to shoot for
And you look good moving in for the kill
You can wash the dirt off later
With some time and a little bit of soap

Hanging by a thread
Well out on the ropes

The fly here loves the spider
As they dance around the bed
The wilful wanton inside her
Delivers desires to the heart and head
When it's time to fly come morning
The spider smiles and says nope
He's grown to love the way your wings feel

Hanging by a thread
Well out on the ropes

Well you half expected it to happen
But not by someone whom who felt so close
Either way angel
You can keep your wings
And the stuff you cherish most

Hanging by a thread
Well out on the ropes
