X Ambassadors – QUICKSAND Lyrics

QUICKSAND Lyrics by X Ambassadors


Mama don’t sleep well
She worries ’bout the kids all night
And the kids don’t eat well
They worry ’bout the mama so they hustle on the side
And daddy workin’ three jobs
The sweat keeps drippin’ in the buffalo sunshine
So he drives that car
Promises someday, mama, we will be all right

And I’ll be fine to get my feet on solid ground
At times it feels like quicksand
Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down
And I’ll be fine to get my feet on solid ground
At times it feels like quicksand
Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down

Sister’s got a new car
No new friends, she got money in the bank
And every day she works hard, she plays hard
Baby knows how to drink
Her brother’s in a bad place
Takes prescriptions for pain to keep his demons at bay
So she, so she drives that car
Promises, brother, someday we will be all right

And I’ll be fine to get my feet on solid ground
At times it feels like quicksand
Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down
And I’ll be fine to get my feet on solid ground
At times it feels like quicksand
Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down

Woah-oh (It’s pullin’ me down, down, down)
Woah-oh (Sometimes it feels like quicksand)
Woah-oh (Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down)
Every day, I pray and I pray, feel like the rain always stayin’
Every day, I pray and I pray, I pray that I find my way
Every day, I pray and I pray, feel like the rain always stayin’
Every day, I pray and I pray, I gotta find an escape

And I’ll be fine to get my feet on solid ground
At times it feels like quicksand
Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down
And I’ll be fine to get my feet on solid ground
At times it feels like quicksand
Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down

Woah-oh (It’s pullin’ me down, down, down)
Woah-oh (Sometimes it feels like quicksand)
Woah-oh (Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down)
Woah-oh (It’s pullin’ me down, down, down)
Woah-oh (Sometimes it feels like quicksand)
Woah-oh (Quicksand’s pullin’ me down, down, down)
