about

'I Could Die Right Now' - writing credits: Crystal Thomas & Spencer P Jones - from album 'A Chance in Hell'

About 'A Chance in Hell':
Through unhinged guitar lines and intense brooding vocals, Crystal Thomas's 'A Chance In Hell' - was launched and released on 21st April 2012, through iconic Melbourne label Off The Hip. The album; written, recorded, and co-produced with Spencer P Jones and Matt Walker, captures Crystal’s 'Australian-gothic', confessional lyrics over a dark disco pulse and rock n roll swagger, raw against the lush production of the previous offering – 2008 Stovepipe records release: ‘Crystal Thomas & the Flowers of Evil’

lyrics

I Could Die Right Now

I was addicted after just one hit
Nothing quite like the rush
no precaution sticker
just the word on the street
And a ring on your finger
like a needle and a spoon
Like white lines on a mirror
I knew what I was in for
With my first fix of you
There's no adrenalin shot
It's too late to stop

(CHORUS)
I Could Die Right Now
Couldn't get any better
Here in your arms
We move together
We become part of eachother
And the ocean swallows up the land
And the sky Falls into the burning sand
And the stars all blow out
Just like old light bulbs

I Seem,
In the months in between
to have lost my sense of wonder
since the first rush,
Euphoria,
I open up that old scar
I know what I'm in for
But my tolerance is greater
and I need more and more
Just to feel myself
Just to feel at all
I knew what I was in for

(CHORUS)
I Could Die Right Now
Couldn't get any better
Here in your arms
We move together
We become part of eachother
And the ocean swallows up the land
And the sky Falls into the burning sand
And the stars all blow out
Just like old light bulbs

I seem in the months in between
To have lost my sense of wonder
Since the first rush,
Euphoria,
I open up that old scar
I know what I'm in for
Is this love or addiction?
Love, or addiction?
One day at a time,
One day at a time,
They tell me,
One day at a time.

(CHORUS)
I Could Die Right Now
Couldn't get any better
Here in your arms
We move together
We become part of eachother
And the ocean swallows up the land
And the sky Falls into the burning sand
And the stars all blow out
Just like old light bulbs
