lyrics

Did some lines and did some time
Bought the ticket and took the ride
Gettin’ high and gettin’ fly
Go and tell your momma I that said hi

You said you wanted me but I didn’t want you to know
Now that you're leaving, down must I go

Did real bad thing a long time ago
With a lady of the night outside Reno
Went sideways in a cheap hotel
Drunk for years but I never did tell

You said you wanted me, but I didn’t want you to know
Now that you're leaving, down must I go

Baby, I lead a life of crime, doing things that I must hide
Baby, I lead a life of crime, lying and cheating is all that you’ll find

Had me a job in Bakersfield
With a good ol’ boy behind the wheel
But that sumbitch was wearing a wire
So I burnt him down in a ring of fire

You said you wanted me but I didn’t want you to know
Now that you're leaving, down must I go

Baby, I lead a life of crime, doing things that I must hide
Baby, I lead a life of crime, lying and cheating is all that you’ll find

You said that you want to believe
But you’re acting so goddamn naïve
So, Darling, open up your eyes
‘Cause you’re in for one big surprise
Everything I told you was lies

Thought with you I’d change my ways
Turns out it wasn’t nothing but a phase
Built for speed, not built to last
Ain’t never gonna outrun my past

You said you wanted me but I didn’t want you to know
Now that you're leaving, down must I go

Baby, I lead a life of crime, doing things that I must hide
Baby, I lead a life of crime, lying and cheating is all that you’ll find

about

Stewart Eastham Nashville, Tennessee

Stewart Eastham takes his music in bold new directions with his third full length solo album "The Great Silence". This release takes on the metaphysical realm exploring grand themes of life, death, and rebirth. While not technically a “concept” album, it feels like one with its repeating themes and motifs.

Eastham is based in Nashville, TN and was born and raised in rural Northern California.
