amanda shires – eve’s daughter lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
i was young
spring had sprung
i wanted out of alamogordo
kept the party dress
in the glove compartment
of my green-and-white ford bronco
a gust of wind
came blastin’ in
the gas station where i was workin’
he was twenty-three
he was on leave
and the rest gets a little blurry

[chorus 1]
maybe it was circ-mstance
but i saw my chance and i took it
through the sunset, shiftin’ gears
to the somethin’-better shinin’ diamond-clear
shinin’ diamond-clear

[verse 2]
we didn’t have much in common
but i had fallen
i was thirsty and he looked like water
when i started to show
he proposed
for a while we were in tall cotton
he started comin’ home high
and then came the fights
and i did what i had to do

[chorus 2]
through a sunset, shiftin’ gears
to the somethin’-better shinin’ diamond-clear
lookin’ for happy ever after
forever and ever and ever and ever again

[verse 3]
started over
in kansas city
stayed too long at your aunt debbie’s
a lotta workin’ late
a little section eight
and the burden gets a little less heavy

[chorus 3]
sometimes it was treadin’ water
guess it is sometimes for all eve’s daughters
lookin’ for happy ever after
forever and ever and ever and ever again

[verse 4]
love showed up and i let him in
and if i had to do it all again

[chorus 4]
i’d hit the sunset, shiftin’ gears
to the somethin’-better shinin’ diamond-clear
i’d find my happy ever after forever
and ever and ever and ever again
