The Revivalists Purple Heart Lyrics

Well the soul don’t want to shine on me no more

Went from a shot of patron to a broken home now I’m labeled as a whore

I pay my debts in full while I’m shied away from the sun

Cause I never wanted anybody else so I lay in what I’ve done

Now I feel

That I’ve been doing you wrong you’ve been doing me right

And I think it’s about time

I’ve been a fool for way to long

So now I wear these battle scars each and every night

And I hope they’ll mend up right

My purple heart can’t seem to mend

These broken promises

I’ve sure never been no angel I ain’t no preachers son

So I make my bed by the river side and I lay in what I’ve done

She sure never saw it coming yeah I know I could’ve lied

But I’d rather lay in this river bed than to see her cry at night

Now I feel

That I’ve been doing you wrong you’ve been doing me right

And I think it’s about time

I’ve been a fool for way to long

Now I wear these battle scars each and every night

And I hope they’ll mend up right

My purple heart can’t seem to mend

These broken promises

So pretty mama tell me how you feel

When you’re stuck in the back of that Coupe de Ville

You’re such a bomb senorita with a body to kill

You’ve taken all my money now give me the thrill
