Crack in the Pearl

Album: Uptown Special (2015)
  • In the back room of the El Mago Casino
    Under a portrait of Doris Day
    You and I
    And a pair of C-notes
    Soft candy betting hard eight

    Not quite how you laid it out for me
    When we split up that night, that night
    Coming out of the Sunset Marquis
    Before you left to deal the fine white

    Is this how you pictured it
    Is this how you thought it would be
    We got right with the mutual problem
    That got right between you and me
    I told you the girl would be trouble
    I said she was going to break us
    Leave us lost in the rust and the rubble
    Nine exits north of Las Vegas, Vegas
    Nine exits north of Las Vegas, Vegas
    Nine exits north of Las Vegas Writer/s: Mark Ronson, Jeffrey Bhasker, Michael Chabon
