  • Oh how I love a heart that aches
    So drown me in despair
    Going down to the shadow
    Where the clock strikes 8
    Follow me if you dare
    I don't know why
    I can't explain
    No matter how I try
    It's a losing game
    Take me to the cross I bear
    I will hang my head and cry
    Hang my head and cry

    I was born
    I was born
    I was born in the belly of the blues
    I was born
    I was born
    I was born in the belly of the blues

    Oh how I love to feel the pain
    So drown me in my tears
    Going down to the halls
    Where the darkness waines
    Feels the same after all the years
    As cold as the wind and as wild as the sea
    The tides that turn around in me
    Just like the sun carries the moon
    My hungry soul will sing
    My hungry soul will sing

    I was born
    I was born
    I was born in the belly of the blues
    I was born
    I was born
    I was born in the belly of the blues

    Every step I'm gonna take
    Feels like the levee's gonna break
    Every corner that I turn
    Every bridge that I have burned
    Every time I wage my bets
    Feels like the last chance that I'll get
    Every day is passing by
    Hear the devils turn and cry

    Every step I'm gonna take
    Feels like the levee's gonna break
    Every corner that I turn
    Every bridge that I have burned
    Every time I wage my bets
    Feels like the last chance that I'll get
    Every day is passing by
    Hear the devils turn and cry
    Born
    I was born
    I was born in the belly of the blues
    I was born
    I was born
    I was born in the belly of the blues
