Lyrics

I was standing in the breadlines outside Heaven’s gate
Ready to take away what every they gave to those who would but wait.
They were promising salvation but handing out lucky breaks
And I get more than I bargained for when the heart awakes

They call me Million Dollar Lilly, I’m just a twenty five dollar fake
I could use a slug of liquor . Man, I could drain a lake.
I left my baby up in Washington.I said it was for her sake.
She’ll get more than she ever bargained for when the heart awakes

She’ll see the sun going down, down, down
Taste the salt of the sea.
She’ll fall down and cry out loud
God have mercy on me!
He’ll make her a legend like her mother
With the boys around the lake
She will get more than she bargained for when the heart awakes
Yeah, she’ll get more than she ever bargained for when the heart awakes.

Out on the Cherokee Reservation my father pays for his mistakes
Riding on a narrow road for those the world forsakes
It will not buy me back my innocence or break my fall from grace
We get more than we bargained for when the heart awakes
Yeah, we get more than we ever bargained for when the heart awakes

I see the sun going down, down, down
Taste the salt of the sea.
I fall down and cry out loud
God have mercy on me!
He’s gonna make me a loser like my father.
With those boys around the lake
We get more than we bargained for when the heart awakes
Yeah, we get more than we ever bargained for when the heart awakes.

I was standing in the breadlines outside Heaven’s gate
Ready to take away what every they gave to those who would but wait.
They were promising salvation but handing out lucky breaks
And I get more than I bargained for when the heart awakes

They call me Million Dollar Lilly, I’m just a twenty five dollar fake
I could use a slug of liquor . Man, I could drain a lake.
I left my baby up in Washington.I said it was for her sake.
She’ll get more than she ever bargained for when the heart awakes

She’ll see the sun going down, down, down
Taste the salt of the sea.
She’ll fall down and cry out loud
God have mercy on me!
He’ll make her a legend like her mother
With the boys around the lake
She will get more than she bargained for when the heart awakes
Yeah, she’ll get more than she ever bargained for when the heart awakes.

Out on the Cherokee Reservation my father pays for his mistakes
Riding on a narrow road for those the world forsakes
It will not buy me back my innocence or break my fall from grace
We get more than we bargained for when the heart awakes
Yeah, we get more than we ever bargained for when the heart awakes

I see the sun going down, down, down
Taste the salt of the sea.
I fall down and cry out loud
God have mercy on me!
He’s gonna make me a loser like my father.
With those boys around the lake
We get more than we bargained for when the heart awakes
Yeah, we get more than we ever bargained for when the heart awakes.
