Track Name: Marseilles
Down and out in Marseilles
burning time, another game to play
wrapped up in sheets
on the windowsill looking down onto the street

Maria says when the sun goes down
she's gonna take you to the bar, gonna buy you another round
With some of those new unmarked bills
and in two days time you're gonna split this town

(chorus:)
Don't shout don't shoot, they'll never listen to you

The next night in your room
Maria lays the plans out under the moon
The next door down the hall
a dim light and your landlady's ear to the wall

She's a woman with an iron kiss
a mind like a sieve and a heart clenched like a fist
Got designs on your old gold watch
but her eyes talk sweet when she's slipping it off of your wrist

(chorus)

Ten a.m. in the square
across the street you're in the bank with money to spare
you're still holding the gun
and you see the cops as you step into the midday sun

Maria's got the engine running
but you can go to jail or you can go down gunning
Give your girl a chance to get back on track
if you want to take a fall with the landlady's knife in your back

(chorus)
