Anchor Lyrics

[Intro]
Two, three, four

[Verse 1]
Lillie’s dress was backless
She’s an educated actress
Her job is waiting tables
But she makes her money on the mattress

She likes to play piano
Likes to use her words like ammo
She dreams of sequin stages
And entertaining boys in camo

[Chorus]
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor in the deep blue sea

[Verse 2]
Well, it’s three degrees below
And she’s got seven blocks to go
She’s tired of what thеy call her
So she sits down in the snow
Turns hеr coat against the weather
And tries to pull herself together
Says, “I might not make it out
But I can try and make it better”

[Chorus]
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor in the deep blue sea

[Bridge]
She says. “I wish I could go back
Wish could take back all those choices
I would’ve never let you go
I would’ve stopped you in the doorway”

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 3]
There’s a tidal wave downtown
And there is panic all around
There’s looting and there’s shooting
And the power lines are down

But twinkle goes the night
With a spoon and candlelight
And all the birds start singing
She is swallowed by the night

[Chorus]
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor
She’s an anchor in the deep blue sea

[Outro]
Life will make you shiver
It’s a long and lonely river
When you’re an anchor
In the deep blue sea
