Lyrics
Ten to Twenty
2015 Sahlen-Starburst

There's some trouble in my home town with the word of my arrest
High school buddies, my old girlfriend and the neighbors failed the test
Said they never even met me, I'm not a friend of theirs
I'll be serving ten to twenty from this whole messy affair

Chorus
Because I had been drinking, there was nothing I could do
She came bolting from the sidewalk where a parked car blocked my view
By the time I hit the brakes she was flying through the air
I'll never lose that vision though I'm blinded by my tears

Bridge 1
Don't you know my little darling this is how angels are made
I'm certain God in heaven helps you feel far less afraid
I am ready for my penance I will take it like a man
Though I'm only just a kid myself part of this master plan

(Break)
Bridge 2
Victim - Perpetrator?
Can you tell me which I am?
I've got loads of time to ponder
All I know is I am damned

Chorus
Because I had been drinking, there was nothing I could do
She came bolting from the sidewalk where a parked car blocked my view
By the time I hit the brakes she was flying through the air
I'll never lose that vision though I'm blinded by my tears

There's some trouble in my home town with the word of my arrest
High school buddies, my old girlfriend and the neighbors failed the test
Said they never ever met me and I'm not a friend of theirs
I'll be serving ten to twenty from this whole messy affair
