lyrics

The Honey Dewdrops - Lowlands

the lowlands lay
a long way down
through tangled country,
on foreign ground

you’re caught off guard,
when the road runs out
your tank was full,
but it’s empty now

and you're broke down,
you’re broke down,
in a sad town
and you ain’t going nowhere
now

the lowlands hold you
with their heavy hands
they make you sing
the songs of the damned

they lay you by
a river of tears
where you hear the thoughts
you don’t want to hear

when you're broke down,
you’re broke down,
in a sad town
you ain’t going nowhere
now

the lowlands lay
quiet and still
you sleep all day
but your rest don't fill
your face won’t laugh,
your mouth won't smile
your eyes are full
of empty miles

when you're broke down,
you’re broke down,
in a sad town
you ain’t going nowhere
now

you're a long way down
in the long now
you don't know how
to get out now, no

the lowlands lay
out back and beyond
you feel so far
from where you belong

the sorrow there,
is raw and real
you beg for mercy,
you beg to heal

when you're broke down,
you’re broke down,
in a sad town
you ain’t going nowhere
now

oh, you’re broke down
you’re broke down
in a sad town
you ain’t going nowhere
now
