Lyrics

BADLANDS SUITE:

1. Jump in the Water


She was drunk on the springtime when he came along

And he knew all the words to her favorite song

Was a feeling too new to be right or go wrong

And all that was sure was that soon they'd be gone



Jump in the water, yeah, pull me in
Hold on tight, it's all right to sin

Moon's high above us shining all around

Take a vow, show me how, can't wait now

And I'm going down



He was searching for something in somebody's soul

And he knew when he found it he'd finally be whole

All the tears and the fears they no longer did toll

Once he looked in her eyes and he lost all control



They were childish and childlike and children at heart

And their love lit a life that was light years apart

And from that magic moment they never did part

Held together forever by fate's fatal dart



2. Bonnie and Clyde (On the Run)



When they started their journey it was just for the thrill

But before it was done they'd thieve and kill

To the laws they were poison, maddest dogs of their day

For the deed had been done him they'd all pay



In their hearts, knew their mission was just slow suicide

Still, they vowed to get even 'til they died

There was hardly a law man left to stand in their path

Anyone with a badge did feel their wrath



Two love-struck desperadoes traveling on that dim road

Leaving many an answer left unknown

For a shower of bullets rained on their final ride

And they died in their glory, side by side
