lyrics

CROCODILE TEARS (ALYSIA KRAFT)

MAXINE POWER HAD A PROBLEM WITH HER ALTERNATOR
BUT WE HAD OURSELVES A CRIMINAL WIND
AND BY YOUR SIDE I WAS INVINCIBLE
SAYIN, “DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE EXHAUST OF THIS EXHAUSTED MACHINE.”

CHORUS
GOOD WHILE IT LASTED
WAS ALL WE WERE ASKING
TAKE WHAT YOU CAN FROM THOSE HUNGRY YEARS
WITH OUR GOOD HEARTS
AND OUR BAD HABITS
WE’LL SWIM FOREVER IN THEIR CROCODILE TEARS

EACH MORNING WE BID GOODBYE TO THOSE BARROOMS
TO THE POOL SHARKS CIRCLING THE NICOTINE TANKS
LAST CALL, WE DRANK IT ALL LIKE A LIFEBLOOD
AND THE MORNING I WAS BORN AGAIN
BORN AGAIN
BESIDE YOU

CHORUS

WHEN THEY CAUGHT UP WITH YOU
I WATCHED FROM THE ROADSIDE
PARTNERS IN CRIME DON’T HAVE THAT MUCH TIME
AND I CAN STILL SEE YOU
LOOKING BACK FOR THAT GOODBYE
AND IN THE AFTERBURN
YOUR SONGS PLAY ON AND ON
IN MY HEAD

CHORUS
WE WILL SWIM FOREVER IN THEIR CROCODILE TEARS
