Cat Power - Willie Deadwilder Lyrics


Willie Deadwilder and Rebecca
They knew that they loved one another
Gonna have a real good time
No more sad bad times
It's all they've been waiting for
Someone to knock at that door

Willie was shot once in his mind
And his cry out saved his own life
The second time was through his heart
The doctors pulled the bullet from inside
He had a job to do he said
That's his way of life

Please don't bring him down
Please don't let him go
He's on the same side as you
He's just a little behind

I tell you there are some people living alone
I tell you there are some people with nowhere to go
There are some people who don't believe in love
But Willie and Rebecca prove 'em all wrong

A man named John wrote a song for me to sing
And the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen
He is a very good man
And he has been an even very good man to me
I hope one day his song I will sing
Another love I still love
Familiar face to me
A standing arch above my heart

I've never been to reach
He's laid my head on the bed
And told me sweetly I am not
Crazy like all the others said
No he's not crazy like me

Please don't bring me down
Please don't let me go
My heart is a worried thing
Memories have now planted seeds of a field I now
Want to reap and sow
I'm on the same side as you
I'm just a little behind
