Sunday Warships

from Modem Operandi by The Stanfields

lyrics

This old city looks dead in the morning light
I wonder where my saviour was last night
When my ship comes in to call
I will throw this knife in the river
I will give my best to love
On the day my ship comes in to call

I know my ways are cruel and unrefined
But I honed my game on fools and drunken minds
For ten long years I preyed on the rabble I know
But I gave myself to the well-known devil I don’t

When my ship comes in to call
I will throw this knife in the river
I will give my best to love
On the day my ship comes in to call

I gave myself to a play that wasn’t mine
I played my part like a well-heeled concubine
When my ship comes in to call
I will throw this knife in the river
I will give my best to love
On the day my ship comes in to call
