lifeblood: songs: lyrics: beauty queen sister


everybody loves
the beauty queen sister
but she always got the broken heart
'cause she work hard
to keep what god gave her
but the devil he's just
pulling it apart
hang on tight
(hang on)
hang on tight now
(hang on tight now)
hang on tight
(hang on)
hang on tight now
(hang on tight now)

mama's got a friend
named monkeyman
with a two-seater bike
and a tattoo stand yeah
he's gonna take me
for that ride
he knows i've been losing ground
most of my life
hang on tight
(hang on)
hang on tight now
(hang on tight now)
hang on tight
(hang on)
hang on tight now
(hang on tight now)

my daddy prayed so hard
that jesus came down and took him
left me speaking in tongues
and hungry for something
so i
fed the family
i changed out the sparks
but every day i gained
another fell apart
hang on tight
(hang on)
hang on tight
(hang on tight now)

hey little sister
i dig it okay
looking for the fountain of love
where the wild heart reigns
and the knife draws blood
and beauty is redeemed

but cherry and dallas
won't ever be the same
pony watched johnny die
nothing gold can stay
and those street kids and beauty queens
they don't stand a chance

so hang on tight now

monkeyman says
draw your picture
give it some ink
and hear the needle whisper
for all the broken hearts
and the passing fancies
pull the inside out
when you can
and just hang on tight
hang on tight now

hang on tight
hang on tight now

hang on tight
(hang on)
hang on tight now

hang on tight
(hang on)
hang on tight now

get your motorbike
(hang on)
ride to heaven
(hang on tight now)
daddy's waitin for you
to forgive his leaving

(hang on)
(hang on tight now)
hang on tight

ah get your motorbike
(hang on)
ride to heaven
(hang on tight now)
daddy's waitin for you
to forgive his leaving

(hang on)
hang on tight
