    Alicia Keys – Perfect Way To Die [2020]

    Künstler:
    Alicia Keys

    [Verse 1]
    Simple walk to the corner store
    Mama never thought she would be gettin’ a call from the coroner
    Said her son’s been gunned down, been gunned down
    “Can you come now?”
    Tears in her eyes, “Can you calm down?
    Please, ma’am, can you calm down?”

    [Pre-Chorus]
    But it rained fire in the city that day, they say
    A river of blood in the streets
    No love in the streets
    And then came silence in the city that day, they say
    Just another one gone
    And they tell her move on

    [Chorus]
    And she’s stuck there, singing
    “Baby, don’t you close your eyes
    ‘Cause this could be our final time
    And you know I’m horrible at saying goodbye
    And I think of all you could have done
    At least you’ll stay forever young
    I guess you picked the perfect way to die
    Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way to die”

    [Verse 2]
    New job, new city, new her
    Bright-eyed, you would have been proud if you knew her
    Flashing lights in the mirror, pull over, pull over
    A couple nights in detention and it’s over, a whole life’s over

    [Pre-Chorus]
    They came marching in the city that day, they say
    Carryin’ signs in the street
    Cryin’ eyes in the streets
    But they heard nothing from the city that day, they say
    Just another one gone
    And the city moved on

    [Chorus]
    We’re stuck here singing
    “Baby, don’t you close your eyes
    ‘Cause this could be our final time
    And you know I’m horrible at saying goodbye
    I’ll think of all you coulda done
    At least you’ll stay forever young
    I guess you picked the perfect way to die
    Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way to die”

    [Bridge]
    Another dream lost
    Another king and queen lost
    Another broken promise they refuse to make right
    Oh, another night to live in fear
    Oh, another night that you’re not here
    Another reason to get out there and fight

    [Chorus]
    But I said, “Baby, don’t you close your eyes
    ‘Cause this could be our final time
    And you know I’m horrible at saying goodbye
    But I’ll think of all you coulda done
    At least you’ll stay forever young
    I guess you picked the perfect way to die
    Oh, I guess you picked the perfect way…”
