Assassin Lyrics

by John Mayer

I work in the dead of night
When the roads are quiet
And no one is around
To track my moves

Racing the yellow lights
To find the gate is open
She's waiting in the room
I just slip on through

You get in, you get done
And then you get gone
You never leave a trace
Or show your face, you get gone
Should have turned around
And left before the sun came up again
But the sun came up again

Into the morning light
To find the day is burning
The curtains and the wine
In a little white room

No, I'm not alone
Her head is heavy on me
She's sleeping like a child
What could I do?

You get in, you get done
And then you get gone
You never leave a trace
Or show your face, you get gone
Should have turned around
And left before the sun came up again
But the sun came up again

I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
I'm an assassin and I had a job to do
Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

Suddenly, I'm in over my head
And I can hardly breathe
Suddenly, I'm floating over her bed
And I feel everything

And suddenly I know exactly what I did
But I cannot move a thing
And suddenly I know exactly what I've done
And what it's gonna mean to me, mean to me
I'm gone

I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
I'm an assassin and I had a job to do
Little did I know, that girl was an assassin too

She's an assassin
She's an assassin
She's an assassin
She's an assassin
And she had a job to do
