Robert Cray - Out Of Eden Lyrics




Tie the trunk with a piece of string
Make sure, did we forget anything?
Turn the lights out
And close the door
Tell the mailman
We don't live here no more

They said it was paradise
And that we'd live here forever
And they stabbed us in the back
With a poison dagger

Stood by the river
And watched us drown
Smiled, then they waved?
While we went down

But once was will never happen
Again

Now we travel out of Eden

I know you would stand up
For what is right
And I know you would you stand up
Against what's wrong

Our neighbors were blind

But we had each other
And we became strong

They said it was paradise
And that we'd live here forever
Then they stabbed us in the back
With a poison dagger

Wrongly accused
Rightly upset
When our friends turned their backs
We knew we'd never, never forget

What once was will never happen
No, no, again
Now we travel out of Eden

Put your suitcase down
Lay on the bed
I'll open up the window
Clear skies ahead

We can sit on the beach
Or swim in the ocean

We survived on a life of devotion

They said it was paradise
And that we'd live here forever
Then they stabbed us in the back
With a poison dagger

Tried and convicted
Without hearing our side
Now everyone's sorry
But there'll be no next time

What once was will never happen again
Now we travel out of Eden
Now we travel out of Eden
Now we travel out of Eden

Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm

  1. Samuel Castora

    Music as it should be thank you for sharing.

  2. Travis Payne

    Blues at its best!

    The only song I know of that shows the feelings of the 60's and 70's and being Black and moving to a white neighborhood. The 2000teens brought that feeling back.

  3. Donald Hahwood
