Gemstone Heist – Motor Car lyrics

Watching you rise early
And practice your lines in the dark
Said a man from the Empire had seen your show
Dropped off an invitation
So I could go.

Oh she’s got a sexy, groovy little motor car
She’s riding round town, you know
Looking like a movie star
Waiting by the phone wishing she’d return to me
But people are blinded by the flashbulbs
And getting in for free.

You practice your autograph
Stopped using your real name
First class, roses and champagne
Counting the numbers to see how you’ll grow

Oh she’s got a sexy, groovy little motor car
She’s riding round town, you know
Looking like a movie star
Waiting by the phone wishing she’d return to me
But people are blinded by the flashbulbs
And getting in for free.

Returned my books to the house
Got a thank you card for the help
Not seen you in quite a while
My old dear mate
Missed the tickets – so it looks like I’m in for a wait.

Oh she’s got a sexy, groovy little motorcar
She’s riding round town, you know
Looking like a movie star
Waiting by the phone wishing she’d return to me
But people are blinded by the flashbulbs
And getting in for free

 

Gemstone Heist – Fatally Wounded lyrics

Fatally wounded – that’s how you left me
Before you started – sprung a spring
And hit the target – you pulled the pin now
Get me started..
Get me started..

How many chances do you give?
While you’ve got the
Face on down the pub
The one that says
You’ll try your luck

Fatally wounded – that’s how you left me
Before you started – sprung a spring
And hit the target – you pulled the pin now
Get me started..
Get me started..

I try to learn to hate your eyes
The place that draws
Them to your lies
Your green lured bait
It sealed my fate

Fatally wounded – that’s how you left me
Before you started – sprung a spring
And hit the target – you pulled the pin now
Get me started..
Get me started..

Small clues now all fit together
Of the countdown
To your departure
Booked in first class
Thoughts fading fast

Fatally wounded – that’s how you left me
Before you started – sprung a spring
And hit the target – you pulled the pin now
Get me started..
Get me started..

 

Gemstone Heist – Daddy’s on the Mail Train lyrics

Ricky’s on the B-Plan
Working for the mailman
Check’s in the post Ruth
Singing for the whole truth

Daddy’s on the mail train
Running out of rail track
Hope you know the way home
I think I’m gonna go roam

Factory gates standing still
Brother’s in the church yard
Dogs wait in the dust
Growing old like red rust

Daddy’s on the mail train
Running out of rail track
Hope you know the way home
I think I’m gonna go roam

Knew this town a long time
Left small in the mirror
Open road all night
It’s our turn to take flight

Daddy’s on the mail train
Running out of rail track
Hope you know the way home
I think I’m gonna go roam
