Lonely Parade
Sarah Blackwood Lyrics


Well this life ain't so easy babe, when you're playing alone
And this demon's intentions are to chase you with a lonely parade
So I'll try and make this simple babe, cause your light could burn out
Once you have some conception of what consists of a lonely parade

"What's that?" you say
It's the devil on stilts
Aman with a temper with a vengeance he kills
Asnake full of venom that you just can't resist

And just hold on
A girl swingin'around with a blade that don't miss
An archer with arrows that sting like a kiss
A clown that'll haunt you put a knife in your back

Do you think you'll work out?
Your friends ain't so friendly babe, put a lock on your cage
And you're touring with peril, a tall handsome rebel,
With a dangerous smile

They'll hand you some evil babe, they'll say give this a try
And you'll jump on the wagon, with a rusty old dragon
In this lonely parade
"What's that?" you say

It's the devil on stilts
Aman with a temper with a vengeance he kills
Asnake full of venom that you just can't resist
And just hold on

A girl swingin'around with a blade that don't miss
An archer with arrows that sting like a kiss
A clown that'll haunt you put a knife in your back
Do you think you'll work out?

Well i know what you're thinkin', your blood doesn't lie
You're telling yourself this will be the last time
But this old dusty mirror, is calling your name
Who's in control now, is it you my darling?

It's the devil on stilts
Aman with a temper with a vengeance he kills
Asnake full of venom that you just can't resist
And just hold on

A girl swingin'around with a blade that don't miss
An archer with arrows that sting like a kiss
A clown that'll haunt you put a knife in your back
I don't think you'll work out

Still one of my favorite songs. I'd like to hear a darker, slower acoustic version of it. ❤️🎼

Vondr Albra

Isn't this already a dark, acoustic version?

2019 and I love this song so much. I listen to this album on Spotify all the time!

Vondr Albra

Is there a whole album with songs like this one?

Nenntmich McLovin

@jocrhino Nice thanks!

Yes there is. On Spotify it is called Wasting Time by Sarah Blackwood

It's almost unfair that such a great voice would come from someone as beautiful as you.

Oh fuck! I mean, oh shit! THIS IS EPIC! After Marley's One Love is this most powerfull song ever. That voice, lyric, oh hell, not fall asleep tonight...
