Fred FM playlist: 24 April 2011 “A Thin Line”

April 24th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Robert Mitchum in Night of the Hunter

It’s a thin line between love and hate…

It’s five o’clock in the morning
And I’m just getting in.
I knock on the door,
A voice sweet and low says, “Who is it?”
She opens up the door and lets me in.
Never does she once say, “Sir, where have you been?”
No, she says, “Are you hungry?
Did you eat yet?
Let me hang up your coat,”
And the woman tells me, “Pass me your hat.”
All the time she’s smiling, never once raises her voice.
It’s 5 o’clock in the morning
And I don’t give it a second thought.

It’s a thin line between love and hate…

The sweetest woman in the world
Could be the meanest woman in the world
If you make her that way.
You keep hurting her,
She keeps being quiet:
She might be holding something inside
That’ll really, really hurt you one day.

Here I am laying in the hospital
Bandaged from feet to head,
In a state of shock,
Just that much from being dead.
I didn’t think my woman would do something like this to me,
Didn’t think my girl had the nerve.
Here I am:
I guess actions speak louder than words.

It’s a thin line between love and hate…
It’s a thin line…
