lyrics

Somebody tell somebody else lies
Like an avalanche they're going to make you cry
Everybody knows when you've been wrong
I remember our love was born
hanging laundry in a lightening storm
Hid in the cellar as long as we could
Well, the corn ran out and the water ran out
and we had to come out when the honey ran out
Out of the forest and into the woods

Sweetheart, they're going to talk about us
Well, I say live and let die
Sweetheart, they're going to talk about us
Well, I say live and let die

Will my lucky star shine down tonight
on a sleeping town in a northern light
Shut my eyes, I can see their words fall down

I lay my head on a pillow of stone
wrap myself in a sinners robe
Sticks and stones, I'm going to build myself a home
With their sticks and stones I'm going to build my home

Sweetheart, they're going to talk about us
Well, I say live and let die
Sweetheart, they're going to talk about us
Well, I say live and let die

Somebody tell somebody else lies
Like an avalanche they're going to make you cry
Everybody knows when you've been wrong

Will my lucky star shine down tonight
on a sleeping town in a northern light
Shut my eyes, I can see their words fall down
And their sticks and stones are going to build my home
With their sticks and stones I'm going to build myself a home

Sweetheart, they're going to talk about us
Well, I say live and let die
Sweetheart, they're going to talk about us
Well, I say live and let die
