No lyrics found.
Hold me closer, I am open, I’ve been waiting, don’t be shy
Wrap your loving arms around me, press your face against mine
Once a liar, once a cheater, yes your light went underground
I have seen it here inside me and that light is what was found
Come home, come home sweetheart
Come home bitter heart
Let go and love
Are your broken, are you beaten, are you stranded in your head
Has your path made you a stranger
Does that stranger want you dead
Come home, come home sweetheart
Come home bitter heart
Let go and love
Our world is filled with ordinary things
Fear and hate and doubt
Our world is filled with only what we see
Can we see love now
Can we see love now
Raindrops on the kitchen floor and the curtain is blowing where the window’s open
Your arms wrapped around my neck and the kitchen sink is just overflowing
On top of this crazy world there’s a perfect face and I finally see it
One dream in these dreamless times you need a beacon of hope and I want to be it
And you know that it’s true
This heart was made for you
You know that it’s true
This heart was made for you
Rest stop on a good road trip I recognize you in an instant from a rolling distance
Walking out into a grove of trees and the love that I feel is just overwhelming
Spring flower by a singing stream and the secret to the thing is let nothing divide us
One boat in an open sea it’s just you and me and our hearts to guide us
And you know that it’s true
This heart was made for you
You know that it’s true
This heart was made for you
How am I gonna live forever
Promise me you will
Call it off, the age of reason
There’s no more time to kill
Show me, show me
Raindrops on the kitchen floor and the smell of pines comes slowly drifting
I’ve stood here so many times but your hand in mine makes it feel so different
And you know that it’s true
This heart was made for you
You know that it’s true
This heart was made for you
You know that it’s true
This heart was made for you
Hearts stop beating when we’re apart
I know what you need baby before we start
Every moment in need baby, look what you do to me
Hearts stop beating when we’re apart
Frozen toes and twisted hands outside your window with the crazy plans
Throwing rocks ‘til your light comes on, comes on, come on
Silhouette by the open blind, clocks are ticking stolen time
Every dream I ever knew in the golden light of your room
We should make a flag baby
Cause the place that we are standing is a country all our own
Hearts stop beating when we’re apart
I know what you need baby before we start
Every moment in need baby, look what you do to me
Hearts stop beating when we’re apart
Past is gone, the coast is clear
Lights are green, the Spring is here
We're sending up our silver sails
Filled with love and fairy tales
Where we’re bound no ones knows
Flowers bloom and honey flows
Land of hope, land of dreams
So much closer than it seems
Throw me down your bags baby
The world is waiting for us now to make things right
Hearts stop beating when we’re apart
I know what you need baby before we start
Every moment in need baby, look what you do to me
Hearts stop beating when we’re apart
What good is remembering
When the thought of you tears at the seams of every dream that I've built since then
It could be anything
Could be standing on a corner in China and somebody will say your name
I thought I was stronger than that
When I was young older people would reminisce I'd say no that's not me
That's not me, its you, it's always been, your ghost just will not rest
Walking the horizon line in my favorite summer dress
Do you remember when I broke your clutch and you threw both your shoes at me
Talking your brother into buying us wine cause we didn't have any ID
What was so rough, was it the freedom that freaked us out
Now nobody's free
and there's so much we could do without
we could live in a dream, live in a dream, live in a dream
Live in a dream
What good is remembering
Got me standing on the present moment like an island in an endless sea
We can only go sailing out
Drawing circles in circles but there's no safe harbor out there for me
I thought I was smarter than that
Thought that I could live two lives at once while other suckers they just lived one
What's the moment in your life that you just would not trade
If you had a time machine would you go back there today
Do you remember when you kissed me so hard that you chipped both of my front teeth
Counting our cigarettes and spacing them out trying to make them last the whole week
What was so rough, was it the freedom that freaked us out
Now nobody's free
And there's so much we could do with out
We could live in a dream
Baby we could work it out, we could live in a dream
Maybe we could work it out
We could live in a dream, live in a dream, live in a dream
Live in a dream
House in the country by a witch’s stream
Where the clouds meet the mountains in an endless dream
Come little rider let your dress fall back
Into the hours of abandon where the sky turns black
Up in the morning with the sound of wolves
Got me running on the bottom of your empty pools
With my mind on your waist under your lilac gown
While light comes streaming from your open mouth
Hand in the beauty, got a foot in the grave
Got a feeling for the future that can only be brave
Wedding bells ringing and a fearless fall
From the depths of the devil to an angel’s call
I was standing by the village gates when I first heard the news
The king had sent his men to seize Gabriel’s land
And when Gabriel he refused, the men took both his daughters
And cut the wedding ring fingers from their hands
The next three days I heard three times separate similar stories
The king was taking what was ours for his own
Deep, deep down in the pit of my chest my fear turned to fury
When I thought about my family and my home
Good kind Rudy stood before the king
His mighty sword in his hand
All through the valley we could hear him swing
And a joyful cheer filled the land
Nobody’s ever gonna treat us like that again
Late that night all the men in the village gathered in a clearing in the forest
And we elected Good Rudy to lead us now
He decided right away that the king must die
Every head bent forward as he told us how
We split up into two large groups and headed for the castle on the hill
My group stormed the front, all the guards came running
Rudy’s group snuck up from the back and laid their ladders up against the castle walls
Nobody ever saw them coming
Good kind Rudy stood before the king
His mighty sword in his hand
All through the valley we could hear him swing
And a joyful cheer filled the land
Good kind Rudy stood before the king
His mighty sword in his hand
All through the valley we could hear him swing
And a joyful cheer filled the land
Nobody’s ever gonna treat us like that again
I’d drink a bottle every day then step on stage
I first knew something was wrong when I was half my age
One night while I was singing I started to laugh
I couldn’t stop laughing for a week and a half
I’ll never forget a girl in the first row
She said But it’s not funny
I said I know
So I went to a shrink and he said to me
Just don’t drink when you’re nervous that’s the key
I said OK that sounds fine
I didn’t tell him I was nervous all the time
So I kept on drinking and I kept on thinking
Wake up you're dying now
You should be dead but you're not somehow
You think you’re being brave but you're digging a grave
You talk like a master but you live like a slave
I started meditating, that worked for a while
I spent a lot of time alone and I forgot how to smile
I went to church, I’d just sit there and stew
Thinking how can all these people believe things that aren’t true
It seems to work well for them, why can’t I
I guess it’s cause I’m special, cause I’m too smart a guy
Too smart
Wake up you're dying now
You should be dead but you're not somehow
You think you’re being brave but you're digging a grave
You talk like a master but you live like a slave
I decided that I couldn’t do it alone
And called a guy I know on the telephone
I told him all I ever wanted was to be perfect
I sure as hell don’t want to be an alcoholic
Acceptance is a doorway to hell
If you’re on the wrong side things don’t go so well
So I accepted who I am and named my disease
And finally felt relief and got down on my knees
Wake up you’re living now
You’ve been gone so long do you remember how
Just be yourself, that’s being brave
You’re not the master but you sure ain’t a slave
You’re not the master but you sure ain’t a slave
Who makes the glitter, who makes the gold
Who makes the winter forget the cold
Who took the hat right off his head
And broke all the legs right off his bed
He’s down, oh baby he’s down
He’s down, down, down
Down at the bottom of the well of love
His phone keeps ringing and the lights stay off
His bar room’s empty and the music’s soft
Where is that man
Where has he been
Somebody better go in after him
He’s down, oh baby he’s down
He’s down, down, down
Down at the bottom of the well of love
Dark and dark, wet and wet
It’s been two weeks, we haven’t seen him yet
Should we sell his house, move his truck
Throw a penny in the well and wish him good luck
He’s down, oh baby he’s down
He’s down, down, down
Down at the bottom of the well of love
He’s down, oh baby he’s down
He’s down, down, down
Down at the bottom of the well of love
Who makes the glitter, who makes the gold
Who makes the winter forget the cold
Who took my hat right off my head
And broke all the legs right off my bed
I’m down, oh baby I’m down
I’m down, down, down
Down at the bottom of the well of love
No relief
No relief
From the pain that's in my heart
No relief
There ain't no relief
From the love that's tearing us apart
No relief
No relief
From this dream that won't come true
No relief
There ain't no relief
From this battle we've been drawn into

When I got home there was blood on the door
I saw you lying on the kitchen floor
I ran down the hallway when I saw what he did
And found our little bitty baby lying dead in her crib

There’s a black wind blowing
Oh there’s a black wind blowing
There’s a black wind blowing outside our gates
Trying to blow this place into outer space
There’s a black wind blowing

I didn’t bother picking up the phone
I’m gonna get there first I want you all alone
There’s gonna be blood on the wall and a highway south
Your scripture won’t save you when my gun’s in your mouth

There’s a black wind blowing
Oh there’s a black wind blowing
There’s a black wind blowing outside our gates
Trying to blow this place into outer space
There’s a black wind blowing

I was eighteen when I first came here
Me and my brother trying to disappear
He chose the prophet baby I chose you
And from that day I feared what he could do

There’s a black wind blowing
Oh there’s a black wind blowing
There’s a black wind blowing outside our gates
Trying to blow this place into outer space
There’s a black wind blowing

I took the corner then I gunned it hard
I drove my truck into your front yard
You came out running but I was too fast
I took out your legs and dropped you in the grass
There were people outside I heard somebody scream
My whole life became a movie screen
I remembered us jumping on our momma’s bed
She was yelling “be careful or you’ll bump your head
I put my gun up under your chin
My hand was shaking so I dug it in
You started laughing and said “I understand
You wish you couldn’t but I know you can
You can”

There’s a black wind blowing
Oh there’s a black wind blowing
There’s a black wind blowing outside our gates
Trying to blow this place into outer space
There’s a black wind blowing

Lights in the city, they go down in the city
And there ain’t nobody there to love me
Lights in the city, they go down in the city
And there ain’t nobody there above me
I’m looking for you
Why won’t you show
I’m looking for you
In this city of Ghosts
City of Ghosts

Lights go down, they go down in the city
And there ain’t nobody there
Lights go down, they go down in the city
And there ain’t nobody there
I’m looking for you
Why won’t you show
I’m waiting for you
But it’s a city of ghosts
City Of Ghosts
My mom would give me twenty
And say “stay out till dawn”
When her boyfriend was over
And they wanted me gone
I would walk through the woods
To the old graveyard
And roll my own Tops
And think two kinds of thoughts
Are we high enough to clear these trees
I don’t know

That was the summer
Dave’s girlfriend O.D.d
She died in the bathroom
At a party down the street
I went to see him the next night
He had a new tattoo
He was watching home movies of her
His face was wet
He looked so confused
They had a funeral for her
The preacher said she was with the lord
There were lots of pictures of her
Taped to a poster board
Are we high enough to clear these trees
I don’t know
Are we high enough to clear this place
I don’t know

Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their own kind of light
High school halls and shopping malls never fit me right
But my heart would swing free
Like a lasso from my hand
When I’d hear that sound
And put the pedal down

I wound up that Fall
In a hospital
On the suicide wing
With a lot of people thinking one thing
They had a sign on the wall
It said ‘no touching at all’
There were screams in the dark
Nurses running down the hall
On the night that I got there
They showered me and searched me hard
Then they took me to my little room
Overlooking a graveyard
When I opened my eyes
I was strapped to the bed
There was a needle in my arm
Part of me was gone
Then they took us outside
In our slippers and gowns
To play basketball on the blacktop
The ball just bounced till it stopped
Are we high enough
To clear these trees
I don’t know
Are we high enough to clear this place
I don’t know

Grocery stores in the middle of the night shine their own kind of light
High school halls and shopping malls never did me right
But my heart would swing free
Like a lasso from my hand
When I’d hear that sound
And put the pedal down

When the leaves were wet
Behind the old duplex
We used to run at night
Naked through the trees
And you would lean back against me
And I would try to stay soft
We’d listen to the engines
As the planes took off
Every step I take
Takes me farther from you
Every move I make
Reminds me that I’ll always love you
Since you were a child
We’ve built our lives around you
Now how am I supposed to live
In this world we made without you

Sometimes late at night
I go to the field
Is that where you are
Are you a shooting star
Can you say my name
Darling can you hear me
Tell me where’s your heart
Now that it’s stopped beating
Its’ right here, it’s right here
It’s right here

When you joined the war
We were so proud of you
You seemed so grown up
Living life the way we taught you
Then your first letter came
It sounded nothing like you
It took all my strength
To keep myself from running to you

Sometimes late at night
I go to the field
Is that where you are
Are you a shooting star
Darling say my name
Darling can you hear me
Tell me where’s your heart
Now that it’s stopped beating
Its’ right here, it’s right here
It’s right here

And it will always be
Until the sun dries the ocean
And you will always be
My little one

If I was the president if I was that man
I would walk out with those kids
Out across the sand
If I was the president
If I was that brave
I would take a shovel there
And dig each child their grave
If I was the president and my world turned black
I wouldn’t want no victory
I’d just want you back
I don’t want no victory I just want you back
I don’t want no victory I just want you back
I don’t want no victory I just want you back

Sometimes late at night I go to the field
Is that where you are
Are you a shooting star
Can you say my name
Darling can you hear me
Tell me where’s your heart now
that it’s stopped beating
Its’ right here, it’s right here
It’s right here

And it will always be
Is who you are now
Who you wanna be now
Or are you someone
You don’t wanna be
Is what you wanted
Really what you wanted
Or is it nothing
Like you dreamed

Mama there’s a hole in the life we’ve made
Thousands of people laughing in the shade
Pointing their fingers at the mess we’ve made
There’s a tourist in every heart that just wants to stay
But winter is coming and it’s time to go
It’s already over we just didn’t know
They’re stacking up wood where the flowers grow
There’s a tourist in every heart that can’t wait to go

Is who you are now
Who you wanna be now
Or are you someone
You don’t wanna be
Is what you wanted
What you really wanted
Or is it nothing
Like you dreamed

Honey there’s a boat and it waits for us
Somewhere there’s a time and a place for us
It could be perfect if it wasn’t for us
Mama we’re in love with a memory
A perfect dream of how it used to be
When our hair was windy
And out nights were free
That tourist in every heart sees what it wants to see

Is who you are now
Who you wanna be now
Or are you someone
You don’t wanna be
Is what you wanted
Really what you wanted
Or is it nothing
Like you dreamed
Dreamed
When I got home there was blood on the door
I saw you lying on the kitchen floor
I ran down the hallway when I saw what he did
And found our little bitty baby lying dead in her crib

There’s a black wind blowing
Oh there’s a black wind blowing
There’s a black wind blowing outside our gates
Trying to blow this place into outer space
There’s a black wind blowing

I’m gonna get there first I want you all alone
There’s gonna be blood on the wall and a highway south
Your scripture won’t save you when my gun’s in your mouth

There’s a black wind blowing outside our gates

Blood in my mouth blood in my mouth
Don’t you try to kiss me when there’s blood in my mouth
Blood on my face blood on my face
Don’t you take pictures when there’s blood on my face
Blood on my hands blood on my hands
Don’t you like it better when there’s blood on my hands
You could be sweet baby you could be kind
But you ain’t no friend, no
You ain’t no friend of mine
No you ain’t no friend of mine
You ain’t no friend of mine
No you ain’t no friend of mine

I walk the bodies into the yard
You take the bones home in your car
I wash the dishes baby you fold the pants
You could be sweet baby you could be kind
But you ain’t no friend no
You ain’t no friend of mine
No you ain’t no friend of mine
You ain’t no friend of mine
No you ain’t no friend of mine

Blood in your mouth blood in your mouth
Don’t you talk to me when there’s blood in your mouth
Blood on my face blood on my face
Don’t you take pictures when there’s blood on my face
Blood on our hands blood on our hands
Don’t we look better with blood on our hands
You could be sweet baby you could be kind
But you ain’t no friend no
You ain’t no friend of mine
No you ain’t no friend of mine
You ain’t no friend of mine
No you ain’t no friend of mine
Hold my hand little one the feeling is slipping away
We’ve come so far you know, God how I wish I could stay
Hold my hand little one the feeling is coming again
We’ve got so far to go just when it feels like the end

Sing out
Sing for the wounded heart, sing for the lives we’ve lost
Sing out
Sing for the blood of man poured out at such a cost
Sing out
Maybe baby I don’t understand the flowers that you place in my hand
Sing out
Sing for the love of God, Sing for the changing man

I’ve been a rolling stone since the devil first came to me
No light upon my feet, so much that I couldn’t see
I was a hurricane then the hurricane called my name
Into the eye of the storm, out of the cold, cold rain

Sing out
Sing for the wounded heart, Sing for the lives we’ve lost
Sing out
Sing for the blood of man poured out at such a cost
Sing out
Maybe baby I don’t understand the power that you place in my hands
Sing out
Sing for the love of God, Sing for the changing man

Hold my hand little one the feeling is slipping away
We’ve come too far you know to let it turn out this way
Hold my hand little one the feeling is coming again
We’ve got so far to go, all when it feels like the end

I’ve been a rolling stone since the devil first came to me
No light upon my feet, so much that I couldn’t see
I was I hurricane till the hurricane called my name
Into the eye of the storm, out of the cold, cold rain
Underneath the lilac tree
I close my eyes and suddenly
I’m ten years old and running through
An open field chasing after you
Sounds of summer fill my ears
If I live ten thousand years
I’ll never feel as good as this
Moments before our first kiss
There is nothing to demand
No algebra to understand
Just sunlight on a freckled face
And everything in its right place


Simple things turn magical
Minutes freeze like popsicles
And drip their seconds down our shirts
I love you so much it hurts
There’s no such thing as real time
I’ve been yours and you’ve been mine
And we’ve lived ever happily
Everywhere I’ve been you’ve been with me
There is nothing to control
No question mark left on our souls
Just sunlight on a freckled face
There is nothing to demand
No politics to understand
Just sunlight on a freckled face
Everything in its right place
Everything in its right place

And I wanna give you a brand new sky
Something so open it brings tears to your eyes
So clear and so present it doesn’t seem real
I wanna show you how you make me feel

I wanna give you a brand new dream
Where two horses drink from a silver stream
As the trees catch fire they lift their heads
And bolt together through the forest across our beds

I wanna bring you fields of flowers
I wanna build you Eiffel towers
Take the clouds in the evening and turn them into stars
And drop them like keys though your prison bars
Set you free
Lonely road, we’ve gotta walk it just a little bit farther
Heaven knows it can’t get any harder then it is today
Lonely road, there’s light ahead but is it getting farther
Heaven knows it can’t get any darker then it is today

Who do you miss in times like this
When your thoughts are filled with sadness and regrets
To who do you pray when you’ve lost your way
And you’ve such a heavy load
Let me walk with you upon this lonely road

Lonely road, empty kitchen and a brand new feeling
Nothing’s moving but my heart is reeling since you went away
Lonely road, I’ve gotta walk it till I start forgiving
Find another way to go on living without you today

Who do you miss in times like this
When your thought are filled with sadness and regrets
To who do you pray when you’ve lost your way
And you’ve such a heavy load
Let me walk with you upon this lonely road

Lonely road, you gotta walk it till the thoughts astound you
And you look and find that all around you people walk with you
Lonely road, you gotta walk it till you won’t forget it
That the point is never where you’re headed, it’s what you’re going through

Who do you miss in times like this
When your thoughts are filled with sadness and regrets
To who do you pray when you’ve lost your way
And you’ve such a heavy load
Let me walk with you upon this lonely road
High in the hills there’s an angel
And a ghost in chains
Here in your arms there’s a desert
where it always rains
As your legs begin to spread
How I wish I was not dead
Standing backwards to the blood of man

Babies in jars, luxury cars
Seasons that don’t come true
Happiness waits outside the gates
Watching each thing we do
Ocean mother, Ocean child
Are you mine or are you wild
Are you calling for the blood of man

I’ll keep my dreams in the river tonight
Under the rocks and stones
They will be all right
I’ll hide my dreams in the river tonight
Under the rocks and moss
There they will be all right

Where did you go
Oh please come back
I miss you so
Oh
Where did you go
Oh please come back
I miss you so
Oh
Ocean mother, Ocean child
Are you mine or are you wild
Are you calling for the blood of man
If the house is on fire
You gonna run for the door
If the door is on fire
You gonna kneel on the floor
You get down low enough
You learn to love the flame
I’ve been loving you forever but I never knew your name
I’ve been loving you forever but I

We fell in love in the woods
In the Hollywood hills
In the death of a friend
In the bottles and pills
Through war and at peace
I’ve loved you the same
I’ve been loving you forever but I never knew your name
I’ve been loving you forever but I

Put the ghost in my sail
Put the spin in my wheel
Roll me up in your heart
Aw, make it seem real
I’m clay in your hands
I’m the ball in you game
I’ve been loving you forever but I never knew your name
I’ve been loving you forever but I never knew your name
I’ve been loving you forever but I
Ain’t no modern love
gonna set me free
Like the kinda love
that you give to me
I’m coming home to be with you
I’m coming home to be with you
Something about your love, oh
Something about your love
Something about your love, oh
Something about your love


This whole wide world
goes in and out of style
All I want
is to see you smile
I’m coming home to be with you
I’m coming home to be with you
Something about your love, oh
Something about your love
Something about your love, oh
Something about your love

As all the shiny things
in the window fade
All that’s real
is the love we made
I’m coming home to be with you
I’m coming home to be with you
Something about your love, oh
Something about your love
Something about your love, oh
Something about your love
Oh Jesus I love you
And I love Buddha too
Ramakrishna, Guru Dev
Tao Te Ching and Mohammed
Why do some people say
That there is just one way
To love you God and come to you
We are all a part of you
You are un-nameable
You are unknowable
All we have is metaphor
That’s what time and space are for
Is the universe your thought
You are and you are not
You are many, You are one
Ever ending, Just begun
Alright, alright, alright
I love you and Buddha too
Spinning your umbrella over your head
You should be in bed but you’re here instead
Walking with me towards a midnight swim
I can give you baby what you can’t get from him
Hey, Hey little fighter girl
It’s you and me up against this whole wide world
Sleeping together in the lions den
Got you earrings in my pocket till I see you again

Songbird singing in an old dead tree
The way you drive, honey, scares the hell out of me
Hundred miles an hour on a brand new road
Look at me again you’ll make my heart explode
Hey, Hey little fighter girl
It’s you and me up against this whole wide world
Sleeping together in the lions den
Got you earrings in my pocket till I see you again

Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Come on kiss me
Keep on kissing me
Come on kiss me
Keep on kissing me

Clouds roll by laying up on the hill
Everything is still, do you think we will
If we do there’ll be no turning back
If we don’t, well, there’s no chance of that
Hey, Hey little fighter girl
It’s you and me up against this whole wide world
Sleeping together in the lions den
Got you earrings in my pocket till I see you again

Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Come on kiss me
Keep on kissing me
Come on kiss me
Keep on kissing me

Cars in the distance, a bicycle bell
Dogs are barking as the kingdom fell
In it’s place stood a golden town
Where people walk without touching the ground
Hey, Hey little fighter girl
It’s you and me now against this whole wide world
Sleeping together in the lions den
Baby, I can’t sleep at all until I see you again

Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Yeah, yeah, a-yeah, a-yeah
Come on kiss me
Keep on kissing me
Come on kiss me
Keep on kissing me
Goodness me, yes I’d agree
I was the one who ended up our history
Well, it looks like you wrote the last page to me
Your friends say you’ve got a new man
Girl, that’s so not cool in so many ways
These were supposed to be my carefree single days
Instead, I’m punching walls and coming up with ways
Ways to win you back from your new man

Woah-woah-woah-woah-woah-woah-woah
Right now he’s a-probably moaning your name
The thought of it is driving me insane
Got to get religion just to ease the pain
of thinking ‘bout you loving your new man
Well, did you get the literature I left in your bed
Told you keep it frozen, it caught fire instead
Have you not heard a single word I’ve said
No, you were busy loving your new man

Goodness garage, his name is probably Rodge
He probably drives a truck
And his hands are probably big
I bet he fixes things around your place when they break
If he says he likes your cooking he’s a fake
Girl, please say he doesn’t tuck his shirts in, please
Please say he doesn’t wear a gold chain, please
Things were going great, I even went on a date
Then I found out about your new man

Woah-woah-woah-woah-woah-woah-woah
Right now he’s a-probably moaning your name
The thought of it is driving me insane
Got to get religion just to ease the pain
of thinking bout you loving your new man
Well, did you get the literature I left in your bed
Told you keep it frozen, it caught fire instead
Have you not heard a single word I’ve said
No, you were busy loving your new man
Aw, come on

Hollie round the tree
That kiss was meant for me
Trust me, he’ll get way too drunk at your Christmas party
Your friends’ll laugh at first
But as the night gets worse
Collectively, they’ll run off your new man
And, who’ll be standing there looking like Fred Astaire
Me, and I’ll be singing
Where, oh where have you been all Fall
while I was having a ball
Certainly, not with your new man

Woah-woah-woah-woah-woah-woah-woah
Right now he’s a-probably crying your name
The thought of it is driving him insane
Got to find another just to ease the pain
of thinking bout you loving your new man
Well, did you get the messages he left on your phone
Told you that he’s sorry and to please come home
Maybe you’d have answered but, were you alone
No, you were busy loving your new man, right
You were busy loving your new man, me
You were busy loving your new man
That’s right
I was born in a gold mine
You were born by the sea
Without nothing we got something
Memphis, Tennessee, girl
Memphis, Tennessee

Rain outside my window
Rain inside my head
Loneliness inside my heart
Emptiness in my bed, girl
Emptiness in my bed

You’ve got the love
That I need
That I’m dreaming of

I was born to love you
You were born to resist
I would give everything I’ve got
To live inside your kiss, girl
To live inside your kiss

You’ve got the love
That I need
That I’m dreaming of

I was born in a gold mine
You were born by the sea
Without nothing we got nothing
Memphis, Tennessee, girl
Memphis, Tennessee
Memphis, Tennessee, girl
Memphis, Tennessee
I’m going back to New Orleans
Ain’t turning my back on this world of tears
With a head that’s heavy and a heart that’s sore
Gonna swing my hammer, Gonna stop this war

Dying babies in the sand
Hanging kings in ancient lands
God on God
Blood to bone
Oh, baby, baby
This world is not my home
How deep is that river
How deep is that river
I don’t wanna know where it’s coming from
I don’t need to know where it’s going to
Before I place my trust in you
I just wanna know how deep

God said to me what he said to the tree
Grow up towards the light and one day you’ll see
My son Jesus what did he say
Love the lord your God and God’ll show you the way
Do unto others like you wanna be done
Look deep in your heart and know that we are one

How deep is that river
How deep is that river
I don’t wanna know how fast it flows
I don’t need to know if it’s safe to swim
Before I put my trust in him
I just wanna know how deep

God came down in the cool of the day
Stirred up the waters and began to play
Before he knew it, Man was on the land
With a thought in his head and a gun in his hand
God saw that Man was just a little too rough
So he gave him a heart and filled it up with love

How deep is that river
How deep is that river, yes
I don’t wanna know if it has a name
I don’t need to know how to cross it yet
Before I get my spirit wet
I just wanna know how deep

A few years back I had lost my way
I was deep in the woods, I began to pray
I came to a river and I sat on it’s bank
It was cool and clear, I have Jesus to thank
I drank that water, Yes I drank it up
Now everyday I come back and fill my cup

How deep is that river
How deep is that river, yes
I don’t wanna know if it’s yours or mine
I don’t need to know if it’s East or West
Before I put my fears to rest
I just wanna know how deep
How deep is that river
How deep is that river, yes
I don’t wanna know where it’s coming from
I don’t need to know where it’s going to
Before I place my trust in you
I just wanna know how deep
I just wanna know how deep
I just wanna know how deep
I was born on a railroad track
with the weight of the world strapped to my back
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy
Looking for a life in a graveyard town
If you never get lost, you never get found
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy

I fell in love with an impossible girl
She was my breath in this strangled world
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy
She broke my heart with my best friend’s name
Now my mind still works but it’s not the same
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy

We go Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang dikki dikkay
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang Well-a-Well-a
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang dikki dikkay
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang Well-a-Well-a
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang dikki dikkay
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang Well-a-Well-a

So many people wanna watch things grow
Either they’re blind or they just don’t know
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy
My Daddy was done before he turned nineteen
My Momma was run like a fast machine
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy
So I cross my heart and I hope to die
Like an aeroplane, baby, coming out of the sky
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy
Born to be a soldier boy, born to be a soldier boy

We go Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang dikki dikkay
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang Well-a-Well-a
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang dikki dikkay
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang Well-a-Well-a
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang dikki dikkay
Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang-ba-Bang Well-a-Well-a
Where was I before you found me
Who was I and what had bound me
Where was love and understanding
Why was living so demanding
You were on the snow capped mountains
You were in the deep blue ocean
Down below the wind and thunder
In a perfect world of wonder
You were calling come back to me
How long has it been, my only
I was listening and I heard you
When I did I finally found you

Everything you touch is living
This whole universe is giving
What was once inside you dreaming
Is now the life that you are leading
I was with you baby crying
I was there when you were dying
Underneath the sound and silence
In the gospel and in science

Come to me my perfect lover
We are one, there is no other
In every face I see you clearly
Oh my friend I love you dearly
When I got off the bus it was six in the evening
Snow was blowing across the intersection
For the last six hours I’d been lost in a book
So it took me a second to remember what I was doing
Standing in the middle of a bustling sidewalk
Under barren branches silhouetted by streetlamps
I reached into my overcoat pocket
And brought out a letter with your address on it

And I may be dreaming but I’ve come to you
I have nowhere else to run
How you gonna say what’s never been said
I’ll tell you how it’s done
You just look into your eyes
You look into your eyes
And follow em down, you gotta follow em down
Till the streets are lined with trees
On the last block there’s a little blue house
It’s the only house I see
And up in the window
A light still shines
Your Daddy showed you what was wrong with life
I wanna show you how to make it right
Hey, hey baby I’m in your city
Tonight
