Quicksand
(Pat Robinson/Bonnie Karlyle)


What's left of the fiery light
You take them down forever
Got one fool in danger
To go home

Eyes wide open
We're running light
Got you by the ankles
Locked up tight in your shackles
You're hunted

She takes me
To amaze me
Make me walk on water
She takes me down like quicksand
Every night in deeper and deeper
In quicksand
She's what I need

Unaware of the danger signs
She draws you like a magnet
With words so underhanded
Like forever

Partly lies partly true
You break the spell you're under
The crashing of the thunder
In silence

She makes me
Makes me walk on water
She takes me down in the water
Takes me down like quicksand
Every night in deeper and deeper
Quicksand
Oh, how I need her

She makes me
Makes me walk on water
She takes me down like quicksand
Every night in deeper and deeper
In quicksand, ooh
Oh, I won't ever leave her, yeah

In quicksand, oh baby
Deeper and deeper
Quicksand
Oh, how I need her, yeah, yeah
Quicksand
Yeah, yeah
Like quicksand
Just like
Yeah, yeah
Quicksand
True love

Bonnie Karlyle in a mail 2011:

...I am a writer of the song ... called "Quicksand"
This was my original lyric
that was given to Pat Robinson for a co-write
...and this lyric was copyrighted in the 80's.
