The Mechanic

  • When I'm broke down, you're the mechanic
    And when I'm mean, you're romantic
    And when I cry, you're the sexiest clown ever seen
    You fix me
    When I'm a sinner, you're a King James
    And when I'm lost, you're the map's missin' page
    And when I'm shakin', you're steady like stone
    You see, you fix me

    I'd be crazy baby, lost forever
    Blowin' around in stormy weather
    Like a bunch of dead leaves
    I'd be a boarded up house on a dead end street
    Old Chevy on blocks, leakin' gasoline
    Oh it ain't hard to see
    Broke down is where I'd be
    Baby you fix me

    When I'm cold, you're on fire
    And when I'm flat, you're air for the tire
    And when I'm rain through the clouds your sunshine screams
    You fix me

    I'd be crazy baby, lost forever
    Blowin' around in stormy weather
    Like a bunch of dead leaves
    I'd be a boarded up house on a dead end street
    Old Chevy on blocks, leakin' gasoline
    Oh it ain't hard to see
    Broke down is where I'd be
    Baby you fix me

    Ooh, you, I don't know where I'd be
    Oh where I'd be

    I'd be crazy baby, lost forever
    Blowin' around in stormy weather
    Like a bunch of dead leaves
    I'd be a boarded up house on a dead end street
    Old Chevy on blocks, leakin' gasoline
    Oh it ain't hard to see
    Broke down is where I'd be
    Baby you fix me
    Baby you fix me Writer/s: JAREN JOHNSTON, TONY LANE
