Chris Isaak – Down In Flames Lyrics


HALLELUJAH! Kennedy got it in a Lincoln
Caesar got it the back
Somebody told me Hank Williams died in his Cadillac
Everybody’s gotta go sometime
Sooner or later they call your name
I don’t know where yet, but I’m willing to bet that I’m going down in flames
Down in flames
Down in flames
When the good times end and they count my sins
I’m going down in flames
James Dean bought it on the highway
Marilyn found it in a pill
Elvis died – or did he? I’m going down in flames
Add up all my misbehaving
And I’m past the point of saving
Even in this noisy barroom I can hear that long black train
I already bought my ticket, I’m going down in flames
Down in flames
Down in flames
I already bought my ticket, I’m going down in flames
Down in flames
Down in flames
When the good times end and they count my sins
I’m going down in flames Some things you just can’t change…
What’s it to you? – they’re looking for him still
Some go soft and quiet
Some go out with a bang
Well it’s way too late for the pearly gates I’m going down in flames
Down in flames
Down in flames
When the good times end and they count my sins
I’m going down in flames
Add up all my misbehaving
And I’m past the point of saving
How can wrong feel so right?
