by The Blackwater Fever

oh baby if you need me now well honey you're much too late maybe I could hear your moans if I wasn't miles away so i know it's sad but true oh baby can't see this love has turned black and blue so I'm better off dead to you like a spell you cast your charms had a hold on me but bad love don't last, no baby look what you've been to me now all the good times are through oh baby can't see my heart is so battered and bruised so I'm better off dead to you
the needle falls hammer in your hand soon time and space won't mean a thing you can't help yourself can't help yourself the city beat a red light rolling stone strangers feed on flesh, stripped from your bones you can't help yourself can't help yourself when the darkness falls a killer on the prowl his blade is sharp and cold and he bleeds you out you can't help yourself can't help yourself
i've been up all night, walkin' city streets wondering what i did to make her heart skip a beat 'cause now she's gone didn't i care for you, give you everything you need i treated you like a queen now i know that i should've seen this coming on 'cause now she's gone my souls' worn down, like a river bed stone she left without a reason why & that cuts me to the bone my heart still burns of the thought of her you see someone put this fire out 'cause these thoughts won't let me be now that she's gone
beneath the sea man i'm gonna hide, if you let me be and i'll simmer quiet like a lion sleeps soon i'm gonna rise… oh yeah a heated pistol torn at the seams and a shot rang out like white lightening over your city, on an red fault-line, like a live fuse wire… oh yeah eras and ages, surge and recede and i'll hold my stride, till i'm on my knees till the end of time, till the end of time, till the end of time
I got a woman, prettiest thing round but I keep hearin' she's been sneakin' around she sets off on the prowl...yeah every damn time I'm outta town I love that woman with heart n' soul but it's taking its toll... oh no! lord, I don’t know what I’m gonna do cause every time I ask, she swears them lies ain't true so am I just a jealous fool cause when I call late at night the phone rings out I love that girl, but heaven knows but it's taking its toll... oh no! well I gotta let her go cause I saw her down town, with her high heels on and at night when she's all alone that midnight hour, is gonna take its toll... oh no!
baby I’m earning, can I come over this ravenous feeling, taking me over the smell of you takes me away, I didn’t want you to know all it took was just a taste, to lose all self control you got me lovesick darling I’m longing, you cannot control lust eve and the apple, urge and the weakness eyes dilate out in the dark, I didn’t want you to see all I need is just a trace, with this hunger inside of me you got me lovesick

The Blackwater Fever Brisbane, Australia

The Blackwater Fever return with a mighty fourth album, ‘Delusions’.

Taking their dark, distinctive sound and injecting it with ’90s grunge, ’50s slow dance, moments of prog rock, punk, soul and an ’80s New Order-inspired track, ‘Delusions’ sees the Brisbane trio sounding more adventurous, eclectic and surprisingly succinct than ever before. ... more
