Black 47 — Road To Ruin lyrics

The strobe was pulsin' in the afterhours
The booze was flowin' free
When I first saw you across that room
On down by houston street
You were wrapped around a wiseguy
For all the world to see
Ah you touched my heart across that room
Then you came on home with me
The angels knew their business, boys,
They knew what they were doin'
With your blazin' eyes and your raven hair
On down the road to ruin
I gave up friends and family
I gave up all I knew
I followed you like jesus christ
On down the road to ruin
The dawn threw up across the sky
We kissed like boy and girl
But neither of us was innocent
We'd both been screwed by the world
We clung onto each other
For fear we'd drift away
Ah you touched me to my heart's desire
On the dawning of that day
