She left a week to roam
Your protector's coming home
Keep your secrets with you
Safe from the outside

You walk along the stream
Your head caught in a waking dream
Your protector's coming home, coming home

[Chorus: x2]
As you lay to die beside me, baby
I'm the one in the shootin' game
Would you wait for me,
The other one,
Would you wait for me?

You run with the devil [Repeat x2]

Tell your brother to be good
Tell your sister not to go
Tell your mother not to wait
Tell your father I was good
