All Of My Life Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Transcendental Blues

I guess I don't get out too much
If it wasn't enough I hear all these voices
Always tellin' me that I'm bad
But it's all in my head - like all those scary noises

[Chorus:]
I've been waiting all of my life
All of my life
I've been waiting all of my life
All of my life

Some nights when I'm laying in bed
Wish I was dead - and I know you'd never miss me
But I know where you go when you dream
Strange as that seems 'cause I never even kissed you

[Chorus]

Everybody wants to be somebody's somethin'
Ain't nobody wants to be blue
Ain't nobody anywhere ever loved nothin'
Half as much as I love you
Somebody somewhere said "love is a prison"
But no one really wants to be free
I'd have to be crazy to ever think someone
Could love a nobody like me

I'm here alone in the dark
But I know where you are
'Cause I can hear you breathin'
Come a little closer you'll find
You were meant to be mine
'Cause you're the only reason

[Chorus 2x]

Over Yonder (Jonathan's Song) Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Transcendental Blues

The warden said he'd mail my letter
The chaplain's waitin' by the door
Tonight we'll cross the yard together
Then they can't hurt me anymore

I am going over yonder
Where no ghost can follow me
There's another place beyond here
Where I'll be free I believe

Give my radio to Johnson
Thibodeaux can have my fan
Send my Bible home to Mama
Call her every now and then

I suppose I got it comin'
I can't ever pay enough
All my rippin' and a runnin'
I hurt everyone I loved

The world'll turn around without me
The sun'll come up in the east
Shinin' down on all of them that hate me
I hope my goin' brings 'em peace

Breed Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Transcendental Blues

I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
Care if I'm old

I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind
Mind
Don't have a mind

Get away
Get away
Get away
Get away
Get away
Away from your home

I'm afraid
I'm afraid
I'm afraid
I'm afraid
Fraid, of a ghost

Even if you have
Even if you need
I don't mean to stare
We don't have to breed
We can plant a house
We can build a tree
I don't even care
We could have all three

She said
She said
She said

Ashes To Ashes Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

[Chorus:]
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

A long time ago before the ice and the snow
There were giants that walked this land
And with each step they took, the mighty mountains shook
And the trees took a knee and the seas rolled in
Then one day they say the sky gave way
And death rained down, it made a terrible sound
There was fire everywhere and nothin' was spared
That walked on the land or flew through the air
And when it all was over
The slate wiped clean with a touch
There God stood and he saw it was good
And He said "ashes to ashes and dust to dust"

[Chorus]

Then the sea gave birth and it crawled up on the dirt
And stood up and took a look around
Said "I'm the next big thing and the gift that I bring
Comes directly from God, so there ain't no holdin' me down"
So he crowned himself king
Now no one remembers his name
But the seed that he sowed took the show on the road
There was blood on their hands and a plague on the land
They drew a line in the sand and made their last stand
They said "God made us in his image
And it's in God that we trust"
When asked about the men that had died by their hands
They said "ashes to ashes and dust to dust"

[Chorus]

Now, nobody lives forever
Nothin' stands the test of time
Oh, you heard 'em say "never say never"
But it's always best to keep it in mind
That every tower ever built tumbles
No matter how strong, no matter how tall
Someday even great walls will crumble
And every idol ever raised falls
And someday even man's best laid plans
Will lie twisted and covered in rust
When we've done all that we can but it slipped through our hands
And it's ashes to ashes and dust to dust

[Chorus 2x]

Look at ya
Yeah, take a look in the mirror now tell me what you see
Another satisfied customer in the front of the line for the American dream
I remember when we was both out on the boulevard
Talkin' revolution and singin' the blues
Nowadays it's letters to the editor and cheatin' on our taxes
Is the best that we can do
Come on

Look around
There's doctors down on Wall Street
Sharpenin' their scalpels and tryin' to cut a deal
Meanwhile, back at the hospital
We got accountants playin' God and countin' out the pills
Yeah, I know, that sucks - that your HMO
Ain't doin' what you thought it would do
But everybody's gotta die sometime and we can't save everybody
It's the best that we can do

Four score and a hundred and fifty years ago
Our forefathers made us equal as long as we can pay
Yeah, well maybe that wasn't exactly what they was thinkin'
Version six-point-oh of the American way
But hey we can just build a great wall around the country club
To keep the riff-raff out until the slump is through
Yeah, I realize that ain't exactly democratic, but it's either them or us and
And it's the best we can do

Yeah, passionely conservative
It's the best we can do

Conservatively passionate
It's the best we can do

Meanwhile, still thinkin'
Hey, let's wage a war on drugs
It's the best we can do
Well, I don't know about you, but I kinda dig this global warming thing...

Conspiracy Theory Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

What if I told you it was done with mirrors
What if I showed you it was all a lie
Better be careful, someone might hear ya
The walls have ears and the sky has eyes
What if I said you were only dreamin'
What you wanna bet that all you gotta do
Is open up your eyes and you will wake up screamin'
When you realize that it's all come true

[Chorus:]
Hush, now don't you believe it
Cover your head and close your eyes
Now, take it or leave it
Go back to bed
Now don't you cry

Half a million soldiers fly across the water
One in ten are never comin' back again
Fifty thousand sons who never grew to fathers
Don't you ever wonder who they might have been
What if you could've been there on that day in Dallas
What if you could wrestle back the hands of time
Maybe somethin' could've been done in Memphis
We wouldn't be livin' in a dream that's died

[Chorus]

Go on and tell yourself again there are no secrets
Go on and tell yourself that you don't want to know
It's best that you believe that you don't hear the footsteps
That follow you around no matter where you go
Maybe you were thinkin' that it didn't matter
Maybe you believed nobody else would care
But once you've added every little lie together
You finally find the truth was always waiting there

[Chorus 2x]

[Chorus (fades)]

John Walker's Blues Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

I'm just an American boy raised on MTV
And I've seen all those kids in the soda pop ads
But none of 'em looked like me
So I started lookin' around for a light out of the dim
And the first thing I heard that made sense was the word
Of Mohammed, peace be upon him

[Chorus:]
A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
There is no God but God

If my daddy could see me now - chains around my feet
He don't understand that sometimes a man
Has got to fight for what he believes
And I believe God is great, all praise due to him
And if I should die, I'll rise up to the sky
Just like Jesus, peace be upon him

[Chorus]

We came to fight the Jihad and our hearts were pure and strong
As death filled the air, we all offered up prayers
And prepared for our martyrdom
But Allah had some other plan, some secret not revealed
Now they're draggin' me back with my head in a sack
To the land of the infidel

A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
A shadu la ilaha illa Allah

The Kind Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

Tell me a story 'bout a fella with a crazy dream
Everybody tells him that it won't amount to anything
He fires the shot heard around the world
He wins the prize and he gets the girl
That's the kind of story I like - the kind that makes you think

Sing me a song about a cowboy with an achin' heart
Ridin' along the lonesome prairie 'bout to fall apart
Every time those doggies moan
He doesn't feel so all alone
That's the kind of song that I like - the kind that breaks your heart

Paint me a picture of a girl with a secret smile
Lookin' back at ya 'cross the years through ancient eyes
You're standin' there like an open door
'Cause she's seen it all before
That's the kind of picture I like - the kind that makes you sigh

What's A Simple Man To Do? Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

Dear Graciela, I'm writin' this letter
Deep in the night and I'm all alone
It's nearly breakin' my heart to tell you
I'm so far away from home
I know I said I'd never cross the border
I know I promised to return to you
But I lost my job in the maquiladora
What's a simple man to do?

I met a man in Tijuana
Said he had a job for me to do
Standin' on a corner in San Diego
With a pocketful of red balloons
All I wanted was a little money
All I needed was a week or two
I never even saw the police comin'
What's a simple man to do?

Tell my mamma that I said I'm sorry
I know she didn't bring me up this way
Ask if she could light a candle for me
Pray that I'll come home someday
Oh Graciela, won't you please forgive me
I never meant to bring this shame to you
I lost my job in the maquiladora
What's a simple man to do?

The Truth Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

In the blue of the evenin' when the sun is low
There's a shadow that creeps across my cell block floor
And it comes to remind me what I'm in here for

No, I'm not admittin' that I done the crime
I'm only gettin' down to doin' time
And the passin' of days is no concern of mine

There's a guard on the second shift comes on at three
And he's always about a half inch off of me
Like he needs to keep remindin' me that I'm not free

God forgive him 'cause he doesn't see
He's no less a prisoner 'cause he holds a key
And God forbid he turn his back on me

For every wall you build around your fear
A thousand darker things are born in here
And they're fed on contempt for all that you hold dear

The truth is it doesn't matter what you do
'Til you gaze in that mirror with an eye that's true
And admit that what scares you is the me in you

Go Amanda Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

Take your red dress, leave the hanger
Lose the sadness, use the anger
You might need it 'fore you get there

[Chorus:]
Oh, Amanda
You don't have to say goodbye
You just go Amanda
Ain't no way you didn't try
Wo, oh
All right

Tell your sister, tell your brother
Take a picture to your mother
You've been livin' undercover

[Chrous 3x]

Oh, Amanda
Oh, Amanda

I Remember You Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

When I'm walkin' these streets
And I'm countin' my steps
And I'm draggin' my feet
'Cause I ain't ready yet
To start all over again
'Cause every time that I do
I remember you

Well, you broke my heart
And it healed alright
Now we're far apart
And I don't lie awake at night
But every once in a while
Right out of the blue
I remember you

Well, you never write and I never call
And I don't miss you tonight
I'm just curious, that's all
Do you still have dreams?
Did they all come true?
Does it ever seem like you'll never make it through?
And do you ever miss me the way that I do
When I remember you?

When I'm walkin' these streets
Well, you broke my heart
And I'm countin' my steps
But it healed alright
And I'm draggin' my feet
Now we're far apart
'Cause I ain't ready yet
Every once in a while
Right out of the blue
I remember you
I remember you

Shadowland Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

Way out yonder, where the wild wind blows
There's a place there lonely fools can go
Where if you hold your money, it'll burn your hand
So you buy you a ticket to the shadowland

[Chorus:]
Down the highway, down the road I'm bound
And my heart keeps poundin' and the wheels go 'round
And it's a hard place for a mortal man
And a heartbroke pilgrim in the shadowland

Yeah, when I was younger I could hold my own
My right hand was thunder and my left was stone
Now I ain't as handsome as I was back then
So I'm takin' my chances in the shadowland

[Chorus]

Been down a thousand highways and they're all the same
Another empty place where I can hide my shame
And there's a heartache waitin' up around the bend
For a lonesome stranger in the shadowland

[Chorus]

Jerusalem Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Jerusalem

I woke up this mornin' and none of the news was good
And death machines were rumblin' 'cross the ground where Jesus stood
And the man on my TV told me that it had always been that way
And there was nothin' anyone could do or say

And I almost listened to him
Yeah, I almost lost my mind
Then I regained my senses again
And looked into my heart to find

That I believe that one fine day all the children of Abraham
Will lay down their swords forever in Jerusalem

Well maybe I'm only dreamin' and maybe I'm just a fool
But I don't remember learnin' how to hate in Sunday school
But somewhere along the way I strayed and I never looked back again
But I still find some comfort now and then

Then the storm comes rumblin' in
And I can't lay me down
And the drums are drummin' again
And I can't stand the sound

But I believe there'll come a day when the lion and the lamb
Will lie down in peace together in Jerusalem

And there'll be no barricades then
There'll be no wire or walls
And we can wash all this blood from our hands
And all this hatred from our souls

And I believe that on that day all the children of Abraham
Will lay down their swords forever in Jerusalem

The Revolution Starts... Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now

I was walkin' down the street
In the town where I was born
I was movin' to a beat
That I'd never felt before
So I opened up my eyes
And I took a look around
I saw it written 'cross the sky
The revolution starts now
Yeah, the revolution starts now

The revolution starts now
When you rise above your fear
And tear the walls around you down
The revolution starts here
Where you work and where you play
Where you lay your money down
What you do and what you say
The revolution starts now
Yeah the revolution starts now

Yeah the revolution starts now
In your own backyard
In your own hometown
So what you doin' standin' around?
Just follow your heart
The revolution starts now

Last night I had a dream
That the world had turned around
And all our hopes had come to be
And the people gathered 'round
They all brought what they could bring
And nobody went without
And I learned a song to sing
The revolution starts now

Home To Houston Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now

When I pulled out of Basra they all wished me luck
Just like they always did before
With a bulletproof screen on the hood of my truck
And a Bradley on my back door
And I wound her up and shifted her down
And I offered this prayer to my lord
I said "God get me back home to Houston alive
And I won't drive a truck anymore"

Early in the mornin' and I'm rollin' fast
Haulin' nine thousand gallons of high test gas
Sergeant on the radio hollerin' at me
Look out up ahead here come a R.P.G.
If I ever get home to Houston alive
Then I won't drive a truck anymore

I've driven the big rigs for all of my life
And my radio handle's "Train"
Down steep mountain roads on the darkest of nights
I had ice water in my veins
And I come over here 'cause I just didn't care
Now I'm older and wiser by far
If I ever get home to Houston alive
Then I won't drive a truck anymore

Great God A'mighty what was wrong with me
I know the money's good but buddy can't you see
You can't take it with you and that ain't no lie
I don't wanna let 'em get me I'm too young to die
If I ever get home to Houston alive
Then I won't drive a truck anymore

Rich Man's War Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now

Jimmy joined the army 'cause he had no place to go
There ain't nobody hirin'
'round here since all the jobs went
Down to Mexico
Reckoned that he'd learn himself a trade maybe see the world
Move to the city someday and marry a black haired girl
Somebody somewhere had another plan
Now he's got a rifle in his hand
Rollin' into Baghdad wonderin' how he got this far
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war

Bobby had an eagle and a flag tattooed on his arm
Red white and blue to the bone when he landed in Kandahar
Left behind a pretty young wife and a baby girl
A stack of overdue bills and went off to save the world
Been a year now and he's still there
Chasin' ghosts in the thin dry air
Meanwhile back at home the finance company took his car
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war

When will we ever learn
When will we ever see
We stand up and take our turn
And keep tellin' ourselves we're free

Ali was the second son of a second son
Grew up in Gaza throwing bottles and rocks when the tanks would come
Ain't nothin' else to do around here just a game children play
Somethin' 'bout livin' in fear all your life makes you hard that way

He answered when he got the call
Wrapped himself in death and praised Allah
A fat man in a new Mercedes drove him to the door
Just another poor boy off to fight a rich man's war

Warrior Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now

This is the best time of the day-the dawn
The final cleansing breath unsullied yet
By acrid fume or death's cacophony
The rank refuse of unchained ambition
And pray, deny me not but know me now,
Your faithful retainer stands resolute
To serve his liege lord without recompense
Perchance to fall and perish namelessly
No flag-draped bier or muffled drum to set
The cadence for a final dress parade
But it was not always thus-remember?
Once you worshipped me and named me a god
In many tongues and made offering lest
I exact too terrible a tribute

Take heed for I am weary, ancient
And decrepit now and my time grows short
There are no honorable frays to join

Only mean death dealt out in dibs and dabs
Or horror unleashed from across oceans
Assail me not with noble policy
For I care not at all for platitude
And surrender such tedious detail
To greater minds than mine and nimbler tongues
Singular in their purpose and resolve
And presuming to speak for everyman

Oh, for another time, a distant field
And there a mortal warrior's lonely grave
But duty charges me remain until
The end the last battle of the last war
Until that 'morrow render unto me
That which is mine my stipend well deserved
The fairest flower of your progeny
Your sons, your daughters your hopes and your dreams
The cruel consequence of your conceit

The Gringo's Tale Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now

Beggin' your pardon there stranger
You look like you're new to this town
We're a long way away from the beach here
You won't see many gringos around
Well I come from West Colorado
And I've wandered this world far and wide
I've lived for some years in the shadows
And my eyes are unused to this light
If you buy me a strong drink of whiskey
I will tell you the tale of my life
It's long and it's sad but it fits me
And it may bring a tear to your eye

All the men of my family were solidiers
The hard fightin' straight talkin' kind
When my turn came all that was over
But I'd already made up my mind
I was there when we blew though Grenada
And I still have to ask myself why
Then we took down that fool Noriega
That's where I caught the good colonel's eye
Well he asked me if I loved my country
And before I had time to reply
He regaled me with tales of past glories
I believed every one of his lies

So I left my old life behind me
Turned my back on my family and friends
And I did everything that they asked me
And I lost some sleep now and again
And I lived like a thief and assassin
I smuggled their poisons sometimes
Until I asked the wrong question in passin'

And the colonel himself dropped the dime
So if you're ever in west Colorado
Tell the folks in Durango goodbye
There's a price on my head and I can't go
So I'll just wait around here 'til I die

Oh Condaleeza won't you come out tonight

Pretty little Condi precious as can be
Bet you never had another lover like me

F The CC Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now

I used to listen to the radio
And I don't guess they're listenin' to me no more
They talk too much but that's okay
I don't understand a single word they say
Piss and moan about the immigrants
But don't say nothin' about the president
A democracy don't work that way
I can say anything I wanna say

So fuck the FCC
Fuck the FBI
Fuck the CIA
Livin' in the motherfuckin' USA

People tell me that I'm paranoid
And I admit I'm gettin' pretty nervous, boy
It just gets tougher everyday
To sit around and watch it while it slips away
Been called a traitor and a patriot
Call me anything you want to but
Just don't forget your history
Dirty Lenny died so we could all be free

Comin' Around Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now
(feat. Emmylou Harris)

Early this mornin' I was washin' my face
Thinkin' 'bout goin' to town
Sick and tired of hangin' around this place
Waitin' on the blues to track me down
Bless my soul maybe I'm comin' around
Been lyin' low but maybe I'm comin' around

I've been runnin' nearly all of my life
Far and as fast as I can
It may sound funny but I'm thinkin' this might
Be about right where I came in
Well I don't know maybe I'm comin' around
Got a ways to go but maybe I'm comin' around
Finally layin' my burden down

One fine day
I'll be free
'Til it comes
I'll go on

My heart's a little ragged but it's all that I got
So I'm gonna give it a try
Look out world I'm comin' ready or not
I don't wanna let you pass me by
Here I go maybe I'm comin' around
I'm a little bit slow but maybe I'm comin' around
Finally layin' my burden down

I Thought You Should Know Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now

I been watchin' you watchin' me
I could feel your eyes from way across the room
But now that I'm holdin' you close I can see
Ain't no way I'm gonna get around you
I won't tell you I don't need you tonight
I won't pretend I ain't burnin' inside
Your skin glowin' soft in the silver moonlight
The shadows where the promises hide
The bittersweet taste of your kiss
It's all more than I can resist

If you're thinkin' 'bout breakin' my heart
You might as well just pick up your little black dress and go
Somebody else already tore it apart
And I thought you should know

Maybe this is all that you want
Maybe you're just as lonesome as me
A shoulder that you can cry on
A warm safe place you can be
Someone to call in the middle of the night
When the ghosts in your bedroom won't rest
Two arms to hold you tight
I promise that I'll do my best
To give you everything I got to give
And keep your secrets for as long as I live

The Seeker Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : The Revolution Starts... Now

I was eight years old when my granddaddy died
He that showed me the signs I still miss him sometimes
Been a long time ago but his words still ring true
Whatever you do be a seeker

All these years I have wandered and wherever I roamed
I was never alone or forsaken I know
Somewhere way out yonder I know I will find
That a bright beacon shines for a seeker

You can't always believe your eyes
It's your heart that sees through all the lies
And the first answer follows the first question asked
The mystery unmasked by the seeker

In a world full of sorrow, hunger and pain
It's so hard to explain why I'm still travelin'
But there's a new day tomorrow and maybe I'll hold
Something brighter than gold to a seeker

I was walkin' down the street
In the town where I was born
I was movin' to a beat
That I'd never felt before
So I opened up my eyes
And I took a look around
I saw it written 'cross the sky
The revolution starts now
Yeah, the revolution starts now

The revolution starts now
When you rise above your fear
And tear the walls around you down
The revolution starts here
Where you work and where you play
Where you lay your money down
What you do and what you say
The revolution starts now
Yeah the revolution starts now

Yeah the revolution starts now
In your own backyard
In your own hometown
So what you doin' standin' around?
Just follow your heart
The revolution starts now

Last night I had a dream
That the world had turned around
And all our hopes had come to be
And the people gathered 'round
They all brought what they could bring
And nobody went without
And I learned a song to sing
The revolution starts now

Tennessee Blues Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

Sunset in my mirror, pedal on the floor
Bound for New York City and I won't be back no more
Won't be back no more, boys won't see me around
Goodbye guitar town

Ghosts out on the highway, voices on the wind
Tellin' me that we may never pass this way again
Voices on the highway angels beckonin'
Like a long lost friend

Fare thee well I'm bound to roam
This ain't never been my home

Stranger in my mirror, lines around my eyes
String around my finger but I don't remember why
Don't remember why, boys don't remember how
Goodbye guitar town

Fare thee well I'm bound to roam
This ain't never been my home

Blue dog on my floorboard, redhead by my side
Cross the mighty Hudson river to the New York City side
Redhead by my side, boys sweetest thing I've found
Goodbye guitar town

Down Here Below Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

Pale male the famous redtail hawk performs wingstands high above midtown Manhattan
Circles around for one last pass over the park
Got his eye on a fat squirrel down there and a couple of pigeons
They got no place to run they got no place to hide

But pale male he's cool, see 'cause his breakfast ain't goin' nowhere
So he does a loop t loop for the tourists and the six o'clock news
Got him a penthouse view from the tip-top of the food chain, boys
He looks up and down on Fifth Ave and says "God I love this town"

But life goes on down here below
And all us mortals struggle so
We laugh and cry
And live and die
That's how it goes
For all we know
Down here below

I saw Joe Mitchell's ghost on a downtown 'A' train
He just rides on forever now that the Fulton fish market's shut down
He said 'they ain't never gonna get that smell out of the water
I don't give a damn how much of that new money they burn'

Now hell's kitchen's Clinton and the Bowery's Nolita
And the East Village's creepin' 'cross the Williamsburg Bridge
And hey, whatever happened to alphabet city?
Ain't no place left in this town that a poor boy can go

But life goes on down here below
And all us mortals struggle so
We laugh and cry
And live and die
That's how it goes
For all we know
Down here below

Pale male swimmin' in the air
Looks like he's in heaven up there
People sufferin' everywhere
But he don't care

But life goes on down here below
And all us mortals struggle so
We laugh and cry

Satellite Radio Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

Top of my shift-frog in my throat-sleep in my eyes
Startin' to drift, cuppa hot joe, checkin' the sky
Never can tell, makin' my list, checkin' it twice
Fasten my belt, flippin' my switch, checkin' my mic

Is there anybody out there? One-two-three on the satellite radio?
Big daddy on the air, are you listenin' to me? On the satellite radio
At the galaxy's end where the stars burn bright are you tunin' in and turnin' on?
Is there anybody listenin' to earth tonight on the satellite radio?

Listen to the radio
Listen to the radio

Turn it on
Turn it up

What if they're right? What if I'm wrong? What if we're kings?
One of these nights-play the right song-telephone rings
Stone in the sea, shot in the dark, splittin' the air
Listen to me, kindle the spark, answer my prayer

Is there anybody out there? One-two-three on the satellite radio?
Does anybody care, are you listenin' to me? On the satellite radio
At the galaxy's end where the stars burn bright, are you tunin' in and turnin' on?
Is there anybody listenin' to us tonight on the satellite radio?

Listen to the radio
Listen to the radio

Turn it on

Is there anybody out there? One-two-three on the satellite radio?
Big daddy on the air, are you listenin' to me? On the satellite radio
At the galaxy's end where the stars burn bright, are you tunin' in and turnin' on?
Is there anybody listenin' to earth tonight on the satellite radio?

Is there anybody out there? One-two-three on the satellite radio?
Big daddy on the air, are you listenin' to me? On the satellite radio
At the galaxy's end where the stars burn bright, are you tunin' in and turnin' on?
Is there anybody listenin' to earth tonight on the satellite radio?

Listen to the radio

City Of Immigrants Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

Livin' in a city of immigrants
I don't need to go travelin'
Open my door and the world walks in
Livin' in a city of immigrants
Livin' in a city that never sleeps
My heart keepin' time to a thousand beats
Singin' in languages I don't speak
Livin' in a city of immigrants

City of black
City of white
City of light
City of innocents
City of sweat
City of tears
City of prayers
City of immigrants

Livin' in a city where the dreams of men
Reach up to touch the sky and then
Tumble back down to earth again
Livin' in a city that never quits
Livin' in a city where the streets are paved
With good intentions and a people's faith
In the sacred promise a statue made
Livin' in a city of immigrants

City of stone
City of steel
City of wheels
Constantly spinnin'
City of bone
City of skin
City of pain
City of immigrants

All of us are immigrants
Every daughter, every son
Everyone is everyone
All of us are immigrants - everyone
Livin' in a city of immigrants
River flows out and the sea rolls in
Washin' away nearly all of my sins
Livin' in a city of immigrants

City of black
City of white
City of light
Livin' in a city of immigrants
City of sweat
City of tears
City of prayers
Livin' in a city of immigrants

City of stone
City of steel
City of wheels
Livin' in a city of immigrants

City of bone
City of skin
City of pain
City of immigrants
All of us are immigrants

Sparkle And Shine Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

My baby sparkle and shine
Sparkle and shine
Sparkle and shine
My baby sparkle and shine
And everyone knows she's fine
She blesses all that she sees
A toss of her hair and a kiss in the breeze
But she don't love no one but me
And I can't believe she's mine

Shimmering she moves
Sunlight all around her
Even when she's blue
Silver clouds surround her

My baby sparkle and shine
Sparkle and shine
Sparkle and shine
My baby sparkle and shine
And I can't believe she's mine

My baby swings down the street
Big tall high heel shoes on her feet
Walks by and my heart skips a beat
And I'm stumblin' like a fool
She give me somethin' so sweet
I can't sleep y'all and I can't eat
Sparks fly whenever we meet
I'm breathless 'cause she's so cool

Anywhere she goes
I can only follow
She'll be there I know
When I awake tomorrow

My baby sparkle and shine
Sparkle and shine
Sparkle and shine
My baby sparkle and shine
And everyone knows she's fine

My baby sparkle and shine
Sparkle and shine
Sparkle and shine
My baby sparkle and shine
And everyone knows she's fine

And everyone knows she's mine

Come Home To Me Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

Yellow moon, amber light
Baby, baby, baby, please come home to me
Another blue and lonesome night
Baby, baby, baby, please come home to me

I knew I'd cry, when you were gone
Baby, baby, baby please come home to me
Thought I'd survive but I was wrong
Baby, baby, baby, please

Just as soon as you were out that door
I remembered what my life was like before
Now nothin's gonna be the same again
'Cause I'm lonelier than I was then
And I can't ever let this feelin' go
'Cause now I know

I stay up late wake up alone
Aw baby, baby, baby please come home to me

No matter what I say or do
I know I'll never get over losin' you
So I'm crossin' my heart and promisin'
If I get you in my arms again
I'm not ever gonna let you go
'Cause now I know

The doors unlocked
The light is on
Baby, baby, baby, please come home to me
Baby, baby, baby, please

Jericho Road Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

I was walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road
And every mile that I traveled showed
And I'm walkin' down the Jericho road
I just kept on walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road
And the sun set red over fields of gold
And I'm walkin' down the Jericho road
Well Joshua fit the battle, that's how the story goes
And the walls come a-tumb-a-lin' down I know
But I'm still walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my mother walkin' down the Jericho road
Tears in her eyes and her head hung low
And she was walkin' down the Jericho road
I met my father walkin' down the Jericho road
His back bent over from a heavy load
And he was walkin' down the Jericho road
I said "Papa, don't you know me? Won't you lay your burden down?"
He just shook his head and told me "Son, you better turn around"
And he kept on walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my brother walkin' down the Jericho road
And his hands were bloody but his face was clean
And he was walkin' down the Jericho road
I met my sister walkin' down the Jericho road
With a babe in her arms that I'd never seen
And she was walkin' down the Jericho road
She said "It's just a little orphan child I found along the way
I'll raise him as my own and he'll forgive us all someday"
And she kept on walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my mother
I met my father
I met my brother
I met my sister

Oxycontin Blues Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

Well my daddy worked in the coal mine
Till the company shut it down
Then he sat around and drank hisself blind
Till we put him back underground
Now nothin' grows on this mountain
And what's a poor boy to do?
Except to wander these hills forgotten
With the oxycontin blues

Well I never cared much for whiskey
'Cause it only made daddy mean
Wrapped a little bit tight they tell me
For the methamphetamine
Then my cousin come up from Knoxville
And he taught me a thing or two
Now I'm headed nowhere but downhill
With the oxycontin blues

Got a dollar bill in my pocket
Got a half a tank in my truck
I'm gonna go and pawn grandma's locket
Hell, maybe it'll change my luck
Ain't nothin gonna be right no how
'Cause I know I can't ever lose
This devil that's draggin' me down
And the oxycontin blues

Red Is The Color Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

North wind blowin' like a hurricane house
Old man leanin' like he's pullin' a plow
Neck bowed, bendin' like a willow bough

Red sky color of the end of time
Bleeds dry runnin' down the center line
Wise guy pretends he doesn't see the signs

Bad news everybody talkin' 'bout
A short fuse a half an inch from burnin' out
All used up beyond a reasonable doubt

Make way for his majesty the prodigal king
Still taste the poison when you're kissin' the ring
Don't say he never gave you anything

Deep breath the calm before the storm begins
Cold sweat pretend that you ain't listenin'
Don't bet on gettin' by with that again

Short ride from here to where the beast resides
Fine line that separates the shadows inside
Make mine a double shot of cyanide

Steve's Hammer (For Pete) Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

One of these days I'm gonna lay this hammer down
And I won't have to drag this weight around
When there ain't no hunger
And there ain't no pain
Then I won't have to swing this thing
One of these day I'm gonna lay this hammer down

One of these nights I'm gonna sing a different tune
All night long beneath the silvery moon
When the war is over
And the union's strong
Won't sing no more angry songs
One of these nights I'm gonna sing a different tune

Someday when my struggle's through
I won't have to strive
Until then all I can do
Is let my hammer fly

One of these days I'm gonna lay this hammer down
Leave my burden restin' on the ground
When the air don't choke ya and the ocean's clean
And kids don't die for gasoline
One of these days I'm gonna lay this hammer down

John Henry was a mighty man
Worked his whole life long
When he made that hammer ring
He always sang this song

One of these days I'm gonna lay this hammer down
And I won't have to drag this weight around
When there ain't no hunger
And there ain't no pain
Then I won't have to swing this thing
One of these day I'm gonna lay this hammer down

Yeah, one of these days I'm gonna lay this hammer down

Days Aren't Long Enough Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

Another year has come and gone
Another circle 'round the sun
Another thousand tears have fallen
I don't ever count 'em 'cause
I'm surrounded by your love
And days are never long enough

Four more seasons on parade
Show their colors then they fade
But that won't happen to us, darlin'
We'll remember how it was
Then begin again because
Days are never long enough

Time's never late
Isn't bound by our fate
Try as we may
Love might never be found if we wait
Until the sun comes up
On another day my love
Days are never long enough

Time's never late
Isn't bound by our fate
Try as we may
Love might never be found if we wait
Until the sun comes up
On another day my love
Days are never long enough

Way Down In The Hole Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Washington Square Serenade

When you walk through the garden
You gotta watch your back
Well I beg your pardon
Walk the straight and narrow track
If you walk with Jesus
He's gonna save your soul
You gotta keep the devil
Way down in the hole

He's got the fire and the fury
At his command
Well you don't have to worry
If you hold on to Jesus' hand
We'll all be safe from Satan
When the thunder rolls
Just gotta help me keep the devil
Way down in the hole

All the angels sing
'Bout Jesus' mighty sword
And they'll shield you with their wings
And keep you close to the Lord
Don't pay heed to temptation
For his hands are so cold
You gotta help me keep the devil
Way down in the hole

Way down in the hole
Way down in the hole
Way down in the hole
Way down in the hole

(In the bottom of a hole)

Pancho And Lefty Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Livin' on the road, my friend
Was gonna keep you free and clean
And now you wear your skin like iron
And your breath as hard as kerosene

Weren't you mama's only boy
But her favorite one, it seems
She began to cry when you said, "Goodbye"
Sank into your dreams

Pancho was a bandit, boy
His horse was fast as polished steel
He wore his gun outside his pants
For all the honest world to feel

Pancho met his match, you know
On the deserts down in Mexico
Nobody heard his dyin' words
But that's the way it goes

All the federales say
"They could have had him any day"
They only let him slip away
Out of kindness, I suppose

Lefty he can't sing the blues
All night long like he used to
The dust that Pancho bit down south
Ended up in lefty's mouth

The day they laid poor Pancho low
Lefty split for Ohio
Where he got the bread to go
There ain't nobody knows

All the federales say
"They could have had him any day"
We only let him slip away
Out of kindness, I suppose

The poets tell how Pancho fell
And lefty's livin' in a cheap hotel
The desert's quiet and Cleveland's cold
And so the story ends, we're told

Pancho needs your prayers, it's true
But save a few for lefty, too
He only did what he had to do
And now he's growin' old

All the federales say
"We could have had him any day"
They only let him go so long
Out of kindness, I suppose

A few old gray federales say
"Could have had him any day"
We only let him go so long
Out of kindness, I suppose

White Freightliner Blues Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

I'm going out on the highway
And listen to them big trucks wind
I'm going out on the highway
And listen to them big trucks wind
Oh, white freightliner, won't you steal away my mind

Well, New Mexico ain't bad, Lord
The people here, they treat you kind
Well, New Mexico ain't bad, Lord
The people here, they treat you kind
Oh, white freightliner, won't you steal away my mind

Well, it's bad news from Houston
Half my friends are dying
Well, it's bad news from Houston
Half my friends are dying
Oh, white freightliner, won't you steal away my mind

Lordy, Lord I'm gonna ramble
Till I get back to where I came
Lordy, Lord I'm gonna ramble
Till I get back to where I came
Till that white freightliner's gonna haul away my brain

Colorado Girl Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

I'm goin' out to Denver
See if I can't find
I'm goin' out to Denver
See if I can't find
That lovin' Colorado girl of mine

The promise in her smile
Shames the mountains tall
The promise in her smile
Shames the mountains tall
She bring the sun to shining
Tell the rain to fall

It's been a long time, mama
Since I heard you call my name
Ah, been a long time
Since I heard you call my name
I got to see my Colorado girl again

Be there tomorrow
Mama, don't you cry
Be there tomorrow
Now, mama, don't you cry
I got to kiss these
Lonesome Texas blues goodbye

I'm goin' out to to Denver
See if I can't find
I'm goin' out to to Denver
See if I can't find
That lovin' Colorado girl of mine
That lovin' Colorado girl of mine

Where I Lead Me Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Where I lead me, I will travel
Where I need me, I will call me
I'm no fool, I'll be ready, God knows I will be
And in the meantime make a little money and buy a little mercy

Met this morning, now he loves me, says he loves me
It must be easy, look around you, all around you
But you see the motion, you're not movin'
You don't know how to hold on
Just keep it loose, don't get excited, it'll pass before long

Now one is goin' one is stayin'
One is silent one is saying'
Here's your coat, take care of yourself, sorry you're leavin'
A little sad, you're all I had will you be returnin'

The boys upstairs are gettin' hungry
You can shout in the wind about how it will be
Or you can clench your fist, shake your head
And head to the country I got no doubt about it my friend
That's where they'll find me, that's where they're gonna find me

Ask the boys down in the gutter
Now they won't lie cause you don't matter
The street's just fine if you're good and blind
But it ain't where you belong

Roll down your sleeves, pick up your money
And carry yourself home
Roll down your sleeves, pick up your money
And carry yourself home

Lungs Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Well, won't you lend your lungs to me?
Mine are collapsing
Plant my feet and bitterly breathe
Up the time that's passing.
Breath I'll take and breath I'll give
Pray the day ain't poison
Stand among the ones that live
In lonely indecision.

Fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you've found
You fool, it's only moonlight.
If you try to take it home
Your hands will turn to butter
You better leave this dream alone
Try to find another.

Salvation sat and crossed herself
Called the devil partner
Wisdom burned upon a shelf
Who'll kill the raging cancer
Seal the river at its mouth
Take the water prisoner
Fill the sky with screams and cries
Bathe in fiery answers

Jesus was an only son
And love his only concept
Strangers cry in foreign tongues
And dirty up the doorstep
And I for one, and you for two
Ain't got the time for outside
Just keep your injured looks to you
We'll tell the world we tried

No Place To Fall Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

If I had no place to fall
And I needed to
Could I count on you
To lay me down?

I'd never tell you no lies
I don't believe it's wise
You got pretty eyes
Won't you spin me 'round

I ain't much of a lover, it's true
I'm here, then I'm gone
And I'm forever blue
But I'm sure wanting you

Skies full of silver and gold
Try to hide the sun
But it can't be done
Least not for long

And if we help each other grow
While the light of day
Smiles down our way
Then we can't go wrong

Time, she's a fast old train
She's here, then she's gone
And she won't come again
Won't you take my hand

If I had no place to fall
And I needed to
Could I count on you
To lay me down?

Loretta Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Well Loretta, she's a bar-room girl
Wears them sevens on her sleeve
Dances like a diamond shines
Tell me lies I love to believe

Her age is always 22
Her laughin' eyes a hazel hue
Spends my money like water falls
Loves me like I want her to

Oh Loretta, won't you say to me?
Darlin', put your guitar on
Have a little shot of booze
Play a blue and wailin' song

My guitar rings a melody
My guitar sings, Loretta's fine
Long and lazy, blonde and free
I can have her any time

Sweetest at the break of day
Prettiest in the settin' sun
She don't cry when I can't stay
'Least not till she's all alone

Loretta, I won't be gone long
Keep your dancin' slippers on
Keep me on your mind a while
I'll be back babe to make you smile

Loretta, she's a bar-room girl
Wears them sevens on her sleeve
Dances like a diamond shines
Tell me lies I love to believe

Brand New Companion Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

I got a brand new companion
Man, I'm gonna do my best this time
I got a brand new companion
Man, I'm gonna do my best this time
You know she cools me with her breathin'
Chases away those howlin' bottles of wine

She fits just like my guitar
Man, she's near as tall as me
She fits just like my guitar
She's near as tall as me
She lives way out the D train
But she's Texas as can be

She got a home-spun disposition
Man, she's just as gentle as you please
She got a home-spun disposition
Man, she's just as gentle as you please
She got arms just like two rattle snakes
Legs just like a billow in the breeze

I got a brand new companion
Man, I'm gonna do my best this time
I got a brand new companion
Man, I'm gonna do my best this time
I want to trace her with my body
I want to track her with my mind

Rake Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

I used to wake and run with the moon
I lived like a rake and a young man
I covered my lovers with flowers and wounds
My laughter, the Devil would frighten

The sun, she would come and beat me back down
But every cruel day had its nightfall
I'd welcome the stars with wine and guitars
Full of fire and forgetful

My body was sharp, the dark air clean
And outrage my joyful companion
Whisperin' women, how sweet did they seem
Kneelin' for me to command them

And time was like water but I was the sea
I'd have never noticed it passin'
Except for the turnin' of night into day
And the turnin' of day into cursin'

You look at me now and don't think I don't know
What all your eyes are a sayin'
Does he want us to believe these ravings and lies
They're just tricks that his brains been a playin'?

A lover of women, he can't hardly stand
He trembles, he's bent and he's broken
I've fallen it's true but I say unto you
Hold your tongues until after I've spoken

I was takin' my pride in the pleasures I'd known
I laughed and thought I'd be forgiven
But my laughter turned 'round eyes blazing and
Said my friend, we're holdin' a wedding

I buried my face but it spoke once again
The night to the day we're a bindin'
And now the dark air is like fire on my skin
And even the moonlight is blinding

Delta Momma Blues Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Come away with me,
My little delta boy
I wanna be your delta mama for awhile
And if you stay you'll see
That I bring you lots of joy
I turn those little teardrops to a smile

Well, if you're blue don't cry
Just wander right downtown
You can find your delta mama waitin' there
Well, I thought you knew that I
Would never let you down
I can ease your mind and take away your cares

Come away with me,
My little delta boy
I wanna be your delta mama for awhile
And if you stay you'll see
That I bring you lots of joy
I turn those little teardrops to a smile

Well, if the grass goes brown
Don't you hang your head too low
Well, there ain't no need for you to sit and pine
If you'll just ask around
I'm sure someone will know
Just exactly what it takes to get you back to feelin fine

Well, if you don't know by now
What I've been tryin' so hard to say
Well my delta boy I'm afraid you're up to tight
But you take it slow and somehow
You come meandering out my way
And I'll take you in my arms and make it right

Ah, come away with me,
My little delta boy
I wanna be your delta mama for awhile
And if you stay you'll see
That I bring you lots of joy
I turn those little teardrops to a smile

Marie Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

I stood in line and left my name
Took about six hours or so
Well, the man just grinned like it was all a game
Said they'd let me know

I put in my time till the Pocono line
Shut down two years ago
I was staying at the mission till I met Marie
Now I can't stay there no more

Fella 'cross town said he's lookin' for a man
To move some old cars around
Maybe me and Marie could find a burned-out
Van and do a little settlin' down

But I'm just dreamin', I ain't got no ride
And the junkyard's a pretty good ways
That job's about a half week old besides
It'd be gone now anyway

Unemployment said I got no more checks
And they showed me to the hall
My brother died in Georgia some time ago
I got no one left to call

Summer wasn't bad below the bridge
A little short on food that's all
Now I gotta get Marie some kind of coat
We're headed down into fall

I used to play the mouth harp pretty good
Hustled up a little dough
But I got drunk and I woke up rolled
A couple of months ago

They got my harp and they got my dollar
Them low life so and so's
Harps cost money and I ain't got it
It's my own fault, I suppose

The Pocono's down but the Chesapeak's runnin'
Two freights everyday
If it was just me, I'd be headed south
But Marie can't catch no train

She's got some pain and she thinks it's a baby
Says we gotta wait and see
In my heart I know it's a little boy
Hope he don't end up like me

Well, the man's still grinnin' says he lost my file
I gotta stand in line again
I want to kill him but I just say no
I had enough of that line my friend

I head back to the bridge, its getting kinda cold
I'm feelin' too low down to lie
I guess I'll just tell Marie the truth
Hope she don't break down and cry

Marie she didn't wake up this morning
She didn't even try
She just rolled over and went to Heaven
My little boy safe inside

I laid them in the sun where somebody'd find them
Caught a Chesapeak on the fly
Marie will know I'm headed south
So's to meet me by and by

Marie will know I'm headed south
So to meet me by and by

Don't Take It Too Bad Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Well, don't you take it too bad
If you're feelin' unlovin'
If you're feelin' unfeelin'
If you're feelin' alone
Don't take it too bad

'Cause it ain't you to blame, babe
Lord, it's some kind of game, babe
Out of all of this living
That we've got left to do

And if you go searching
For rhyme or for reason
Then you won't have the time
That it takes just for talkin'

About the places you've been, babe
About the faces you've seen, babe
And how soft the time flies
Past your window at night

And we just can't have that, girl
'Cause it's a sad, lonesome, cold world
And a man needs a woman
Just to stand by his side

And whisper sweet words in his ears about daydreams
And roses and playthings
And the sweetness of springtime
And the sound of the rain

Mr. Mudd And Mr. Gold Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Well the wicked king of clubs awoke
And it was to his queen turned
His lips were laughing as they spoke
His eyes like bullets burned

The sun's upon a gambling day
His queen smiled low and blissfully
Let's make some wretched fool to play
Plain it was she did agree

He send his deuce down into diamond
His four to hart, and his trey to spade
Three kings with their legions come
Preparations soon where made

They voted club the days commander
Gave him an army face and number
All but the outlaw jack of diamonds
And the aces in the sky

Well, he gave his sevens first instructions
Spirit me a game of stud
Stakes unscarred by limitation
Between a man named Gold and man named Mud

Club filled Gold with greedy vapors
Till his long, green eyes did glow
And Mudd was left with the sighs and trembles
Watching his hard earned money go

Flushes fell on Gold like water
Tens they paired and paired again
But the aces only flew through heaven
And the diamond jack called no man friend

Now, the Diamond Queen saw Muds ordeal
Began to think of her long lost son
Fell to her knees with a mother's mercy
And prayed to the angels every one

Now, the Diamond Queen, she prayed and prayed
And the Diamond Angel filled Muds hole
The wicked King of Clubs himself
Fell in face down in front of Gold

Now, three kings come to Clubs command
But the angels from the sky did ride
Three kings up on the streets of Gold
Three fireballs on the muddy side

The club queen heard her husband's call
But Lord, that Queen of Diamond's joy
When the outlaw in the heavenly hall
Turned out to be a wandering boy

Now, Mudd he checked and Gold bet all
And Mudd he raised and Gold did call
And the smile just melted on his face
When Mudd turned over that diamond ace

Now, here's what this story's told
If you feel like Mudd you'll end up Gold
If you feel like lost, you'll end up found
So amigo, lay them raises down

(Quicksilver Daydreams Of) Maria Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Well, a diamond fades quickly when matched to the face of Maria
All the harps they sound empty when she lifts her lips to the sky
The brown of her skin makes her hair seem a soft golden rainfall
That spills from the mountains to the bottomless depths of her eyes

Well, she stands all around me her hands slowly sifting the sunshine
All the laughter that linger down deep 'neath her smilin' is free
Well, it spins and it twirls like a hummingbird lost in the morning
Then caresses the south wind and silently sails to the sea

Ah, the sculptor stands stricken and the artist he throws away his brushes
When her image comes dancin' the sun she turns sullen with shame
And the birds they go silent the wind stops his sad mournful singing
When the trees of the forest start gently to whispering her name

So as softly she wanders I'll desperately follow her footsteps
And I'll chase after shadows that offer a trace of her sigh
Ah, they promise eternally that she lies hidden within them
But I find they've deceived me and sadly I bid them goodbye

So the serpent slide softly away with his moments of laughter
And the the old washer-woman has finished her cleanin' and gone
But the bamboo hang heavy in the bondage of quicksilver daydreams
And a lonely child longingly looks for a place to belong

To Live Is To Fly Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : Townes

Won't say I love you, babe
Won't say I need you, babe
I'm gonna get you babe
And I will not do you wrong

Living's mostly wasting time
I'll waste my share of mine
But it never feels too good
So let's don't take too long

Well you're soft as glass
And I'm a gentleman
We got the sky to talk about
And the world to lie upon

Days up and down they come
Like rain on a conga drum
Forget most, remember some
Don't turn none away

Everything is not enough
And nothin' is too much to bear
Where you've been is good and gone
All you keep's the getting there

Well to live is to fly, all low and high
So shake the dust off of your wings
And the sleep out of your eyes

It's goodbye to all my friends
It's time to go again
But think of all the poetry
And the pickin' down the line

Well I'll miss the system here
The bottom's low and the treble's clear
But it don't pay to think to much
On things you leave behind

Well I may be gone
But it won't be long
I will be a bringin' back the melodies
And rhythm that I find

We all got holes to fill
And them holes are all that's real
Some fall on you like a storm
Sometimes you dig your own

The choice is yours to make
And time is yours to take
Some dive into the sea
Some toil upon the stone

Well to live is to fly, all low and high
So shake the dust off of your wings
And the sleep out of your eyes
Shake the dust off of your wings
And the tears out of your eyes

God Is God Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive

I believe in prophecy.
Some folks see things not everybody can see.
And,once in a while,they pass the secret along to you and me.

And I believe in miracles.
Something sacred burning in every bush and tree.
We can all learn to sing the songs the angels sing.

Yeah, I believe in God, and God ain't me.

I've traveled around the world,
Stood on mighty mountains and gazed across the wilderness.
Never seen a line in the sand or a diamond in the dust.

And as our fate unfurls,
Every day that passes I'm sure about a little bit less.
Even my money keeps telling me it's God I need to trust.

And I believe in God, but God ain't us.

God,in my little understanding, don't care what name I call.
Whether or not I believe doesn't matter at all.

I receive the blessings.
That every day on Earth's another chance to get it right.
Let this little light of mine shine and rage against the night.

Just another lesson
Maybe someone's watching and wondering what I got.
Maybe this is why I'm here on Earth, and maybe not.

But I believe in God, and God is God.

Lonely Are The Free Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive

Lonely are the free
'Cause there ain't that many of them
They don't walk like you and me

They just tumble in the breeze
Lighter than a feather
All together, separately

That's how it's s'posed to be
No matter where they wander
From post to in between,
From here to over yonder,
There's no place for them to land
Lonely are the free

The silent are the strong
Not so much as a whisper
Tells you anything is wrong

You've known all along,
But you can't help but listen
And now the moment's gone.

It keeps you hanging on
Until the stillness signaling
The breaking of the dawn,
Is shattered by the sirens
Singing sacrificial songs
The silent are the strong.

That's all they used to see
A violent shadow passing 'cross
The sun so fleetingly
That if you have to ask you miss it
Anyway you see
Lonely are the free
Lonely are the free

I Am A Wanderer Lyrics

Artist : STEVE EARLE
Album : I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive

I am a wanderer, feet on the ground,
Heart on my sleeve and my head in the clouds.
I own the star above some distant shore,
Wandering ever more.

I am a refugee torn from my land,
Cast off to travel this world to its end.
Never to see my proud mountains again
But I still remember them.

[Instrumental]

I am a labourer, sign round my neck:
"Will work for dignity, trust and respect".
Stand on this corner so you don't forget
I haven't had mine yet.

I am a prisoner pacing my cell,
Three steps and back, my corner of hell.
Lock me away and you swallow the key,
But some day I shall be free.

And I'll be a wanderer, feet on the ground,
Heart on my sleeve and my head in the clouds.
I own the star above some distant shore,
Wandering ever more.

Young And Useless Lyrics

Artist : THIS CENTURY
Album : Sound Of Fire

Just another story 'bout the young and the useless
Used to be a pretty boy, now he's just worthless
Couldn't keep his word, no he couldn't keep a secret
Just another story 'bout the young and the useless

And I say no
No I won't go

You know we're never gonna wake up
A generation in a coma
And I don't care about your problems
You're looking better with your mouth shut
'Cause I've had enough
And no we're never getting out, out
Young and useless

Just another story and it comes in a tight dress
(And I can't take it)
Used to go crazy turning up the music
(No one will ever know)
Couldn't feel the down beat staring at the ceiling
(And I can't take it, I can't take it)
Just another story 'bout the young and the useless

You know we're never gonna wake up
A generation in a coma
And I don't care about your problems
You're looking better with your mouth shut
'Cause I've had enough
And no we're never getting out, out
Young and useless

I won't waste my time with you
And I don't want another you
'Cause this fuse is burning short
And I won't take anymore
Young and useless

You know we're never gonna wake up
A generation in a coma
And I don't care about your problems (oh)
You're looking better with your mouth shut
'Cause I've had enough
And no we're never getting out, out
Young and useless
Young and useless
Young and useless

You're looking better with your mouth shut
'Cause I've had enough
And no we're never getting out, out...

Just another story 'bout the young and the useless

Sound Of Fire Lyrics

Artist : THIS CENTURY
Album : Sound Of Fire

I was seventeen
And stupid
She was pink and perfect

We were almost
Make believe
Innocent and nervous

And you became a drug
(Hey)
And I can't get enough

You are the sound of fire
Burning up the night
(Burning up the night)
And I can't hold a beat
To save my life

So I don't wanna dance alone
I don't wanna dance alone

Into your arms
When time was still
And nothing mattered

You can take my heart
And break it, and shake it
Leave me forsaken
And I just want it badder

And you became love
(Hey)
And I can't get enough

You are the sound of fire
Burning up the night
(Burning up the night)
And I can't hold a beat
To save my life

You are the sound of fire
Keeping me alive
(Keeping me alive)
And I need you
To need me to survive

And I don't want anybody else
If I can have you to myself
All to myself

I don't wanna dance alone

You are the sound of fire
Burning up the night
(Burning up the night)
And I can't hold a beat
To save my life

You are the sound of fire
Keeping me alive
(Keeping me alive)
And I need you
To need me to survive

(I don't wanna dance alone)
I don't wanna dance alone

(Hey, hey)

Don't stop me from falling
'Cause I don't
Wanna play pretend

'Cause I just
Wanna let you in
The world I'm in

Don't stop me from dreaming
You're playing with fire
And I can't hold back

Everywhere Everything Lyrics

Artist : THIS CENTURY
Album : Sound Of Fire

Hey prima donna
Don't you wanna
Come a little closer
Stay a little longer

'Cause I hear your voice cut through the noise
And I wanna hear the words you say
Hey prima donna
Don't you wanna talk to me

She comes and she goes
She's everywhere I wanna be
When she's high she's low
She's everything, everything
I follow her like satellites
Around and 'round she goes
She's everywhere, she's everything

Hey Aphrodite
Don't you see me standing in your sunrise
Soaking up your daylight
'Cause I know your smile will last for a while
But I need you more and more each day
'Cause I hear your voice cut through the noise

She comes and she goes
She's everywhere I wanna be
When she's high she's low
She's everything, everything
I follow her like satellites
Around and 'round she goes
She's everywhere, she's everything

Spinning like a perfect diamond
Glowing in the light, she's shining
Just the way I like it
And I can't fight it
Spinning like a perfect diamond
Baby keep it raining down on me

Down on me (down on me)

Hey prima donna
Don't you wanna
Stay a little longer
And talk to me

She comes and she goes
She's everywhere I wanna be
When she's high she's low
She's everything, everything
I follow her like satellites
Around and 'round she goes
She's everywhere, she's everything
She's everywhere, she's everything

She's everything
She's everything

Money Honey Lyrics

Artist : THIS CENTURY
Album : Sound Of Fire

No I don't got money
But I got the time honey
If you'll wait for me to turn this all around
I'm in debt to you always
As we make the same mistakes
Just know jealousy's no longer in the way

Let's learn to put the past behind us
Let love push through the door and find us
Just keep your heart wide open
So I can fix what's broken
Stay around maybe I can be a better me

We could sprawl across our floor
Staying up until it's four
Make your eyes my entertainment for the night
Make a home to call our own
I know it's nothing yet but we can make it great
Cause we would never be alone, alone, alone

Let's learn to put the past behind us
Let love push through the door and find us
Keep your heart wide open
So I can fix what's broken
Stay around maybe I can be a better me

I can be
a better me
I can be
a better me
I can be
a better me, a better me, ohhh

Just keep your heart wide open
So I can fix what's broken
Stay around maybe

Let's learn to put the past behind us
Let love push through the door and find us
Keep your heart wide open
So I can fix what's broken
Stay around maybe I can be a better me

I can be a better me
I can be a better me
I can be a better me
I can be a better me

To Love And Back Lyrics

Artist : THIS CENTURY
Album : Sound Of Fire

I mean it
Every word of it
I don't know the future but she was never in it
And if she thinks I'm insane
I'll try my best to explain
That's when I'll tell her
I went to love and back

I'm not giving up
I'm just starting over
You're the one I loved
Thought it would last forever
I can't be with you when you want me to
I fell off track
I went to love and back

I mean it
Every word of it
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't over it
And I couldn't wait for the moment you would open up your arms
Open up your arms

I'm not giving up
I'm just starting over
You're the one I loved
Thought it would last forever
I can't be with you
When you want me to
I fell off track
I went to love and back

And I'm not afraid
And I can't forget
All of the memories inside of my head
And I couldn't stay if I can't let go
I went to love and back

Oh, oh, oh I went to love and back

Oh, oh, oh I went to love and back

I'm not giving up
I'm just starting over
You're the one I loved
Thought it would last forever
I can't be with you
When you want me to
I fell off track (I went to love and back)
I fell off track
I fell off track
I fell off track
I went to love and back

Do It To Me Lyrics

Artist : THIS CENTURY
Album : Sound Of Fire

Every time I chase your hips you push me away
Closer to your lips, I want you
Do you feel the same
'Cause I got this feeling
I got this feeling

Oh, you do it to me
Cut me off
'Til I can't breathe
If I could get next to you
Inside of your heart
Oh, you're making it hurt when I try to make it work
If I could be close to you
Inside of your heart
You do it to me

We could be in Paris drunk on love and champagne
Falling for you faster every sip I take
'Cause I got these feelings
I got these feelings
You got me dreaming
I've got these feelings

Oh, you do it to me
Cut me off
'Til I can't breathe
If I could get next to you
Inside of your heart
Oh, you're making it hurt when I try to make it work
If I could be close to you
Inside of your heart
You do it to me

I won't let you down
Come with me, yeah
I won't let you down
I've waited for you here
You do it to me

Waited for you here

Oh, you do it to me
Cut me off
'Til I can't breathe
If I could get next to you
Inside of your heart
Oh, you're making it hurt when I try to make it work
If I could be close to you
Inside of your heart
You do it to me

Oh, oh, you do it to me
Oh, oh, you do it to me

Loud Lyrics

Artist : THIS CENTURY
Album : Sound Of Fire

You got something that I want from you
You got something and I want you
I'mma tell you what I gotta do
I'm gonna tell you what I wanna do

And you can't hold me down

I wanna be loud
I wanna get out
You've got the noise
I've got the habit
Losing control if I have it
I wanna be loud

Red lights and I'm black and blue
White lies I can see through
It's getting complicated
Give me something, novocate it
I can hardly take anymore

And you can't hold me down
No, you won't hold me down

I wanna be loud
I wanna get out
You've got the noise
I've got the habit
Losing control if I have it
I wanna be loud

You got something that I want from you
You got something and I want you
Nobody's gonna turn me down when I'm shouting out
You got something that I want from you
You got something and I want you
Nobody's gonna turn me down when I'm shouting out

Yeah, oh yeah

I wanna be loud
I wanna get out
You've got the noise
I've got the habit
Losing control if I have it
I wanna be loud

Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey!

Dr. Psiquiatra Lyrics

Artist : TREVI, GLORIA
Album : ¿Qué Hago Aquí?

Creo que ya es tiempo de ir con el psiquiatra,
Lo dijeron en mi casa y me trajeron casi arrastras,
Pues cuando llego de noche,
Y me quieren hacer un reproche,
No oigo nada, no oigo nada y corro a la ventana,
Pero del quinto piso el que salta se mata,
Me pongo violenta viento adornos de casa
No estoy loca, no estoy loca, no estoy loca,
Solo estoy, desesperada.

Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me diga tonterías,
Dr. psiquiatra, quiero vivir mi propia vida,
Dr. psiquiatra, yo no le pagare la cuenta,
Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me mi, ya no me mi,
Ya no miren más las piernas,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no estoy loca.

Creo que ya es tiempo de ir con el psiquiatra,
Eso dijo el profesor y me corrió del salón,
Y cuando no llego a clases,
Manda a buscarme por todas partes,
Yo me escondo, yo me escondo no entiendo lo que le pasa,
Primero que me vaya y después que no salga,
Cuatro paredes tristes prisión de enamoradas,
No estoy loca, no estoy loca, no estoy loca,
Solo estoy desesperada.

Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me diga tonterías,
Dr. psiquiatra, quiero vivir mi propia vida,
Dr. psiquiatra, yo no le pagare la cuenta,
Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me mi, ya no me mi,
Ya no miren más las piernas,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no estoy loca.

Yo soy Julieta, y en luna llena,
Me vuelvo loba, y busco a Romeo
No estoy loca, no estoy loca, no estoy loca
Solo estoy, desesperada.

Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me diga tonterías,
Dr. psiquiatra, quiero vivir mi propia vida,
Dr. psiquiatra, yo no le pagare la cuenta,
Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me mi, ya no me mi,
Ya no miren más las piernas,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me diga tonterías,
Dr. psiquiatra, quiero vivir mi propia vida,
Dr. psiquiatra, yo no le pagare la cuenta,
Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me mi, ya no me mi,
Ya no miren más las piernas,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me diga tonterías,
Dr. psiquiatra, quiero vivir mi propia vida,
Dr. psiquiatra, yo no le pagare la cuenta,
Dr. psiquiatra, ya no me mi, ya no me mi,
Ya no miren más las piernas,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no estoy loca.

corriendo por la casa

pantalón de mezclilla
y un sólo brasier.

pobre de mí

¿Qué Hago Aquí? Lyrics

Artist : TREVI, GLORIA
Album : ¿Qué Hago Aquí?

Qué hago aquí?
Estoy justamente donde no quiero estar
estoy encerrada dizque para estudiar
con un libro de historia que habla de crueldades
gente que mata gente para conquistar.

Qué hago aquí? y salgo a la calle
para reflexionar hay un vestido caro,
no lo puedo comprar un niño delgadito
que me pide pan lo poco que yo tengo
se lo empiezo a dar.
Qué hago aquí? y miro a todos lados
no encuentro paz pienso que en la selva
hay más seguridad miro nubes negras
y empiezo a temblar siento tanto miedo
que quiero llorar.

Qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago justamente aquí
qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago si no soy feliz
qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago en este mundo
quiero un mundo diferente
llenito de buena gente.

Qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago justamente aquí
qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago si no soy feliz
qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago en este mundo
quiero un mundo diferente
llenito de buena gente.

Qué hago aquí? estoy en mi casa
sin dejar de llorar mis padres en guerra
sólo saben gritar su foto de casados
no soporto mirar es como ver a un muerto
y me pongo a pensar. Qué hago aquí?
y miro a todos lados no encuentro paz
pienso que en la selva hay más seguridad
miro nubes negras y empiezo a temblar
siento tanto miedo que quiero llorar.

Qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago justamente aquí
qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago si no soy feliz
qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago en este mundo
quiero un mundo diferente
llenito de buena gente.

Qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago justamente aquí
qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago si no soy feliz
qué hago aquí, qué hago aquí,
qué hago en este mundo
quiero un mundo diferente
llenito de buena gente.

Satisfecha Lyrics

Artist : TREVI, GLORIA
Album : ¿Qué Hago Aquí?

Nunca quedo
satisfecha
nunca quedo
satisfecha
quiero más, quiero más
quiero más, quiero más.
nunca quedo
nunca quedo
todos dicen
que no soy medida
y no solamente
con la comida
qué le voy a hacer
si me gusta la vida
y no cambiaré
hasta que me decida
y digo que
no, no estoy dolida.
no es de risa,
no no no,
eh eh eh
qué vas a hacer.
nunca quedo
satisfecha
nunca quedo
satisfecha
quiero más, quiero más
quiero más, quiero más.
nunca quedo
nunca quedo
cuando se es mujer,
hay que ser derecha
hay que cuidar
muy bien la fecha
y no levantar
ninguna sospecha
y perder por tonta
toda la cosecha
o estarás desecha
y yo no quiero
no no no.
eh eh eh
qué vas a hacer.
nunca quedo
satisfecha
nunca quedo
satisfecha
quiero más, quiero más
quiero más, quiero más.
nunca quedo
nunca quedo
prendo el televisor
en busca de distracción
cambio otro canal
las noticias ¡qué horror!
y veo como dos
se llenan de emoción
la chica satisfecha grita
ah ah oh
y yo que nunca tengo
tanta satisfacción
no lo entiendo
no no no.
eh eh eh
eh eh eh
eh eh eh
qué vas a hacer.
nunca quedo
satisfecha
nunca quedo
satisfecha
quiero más, quiero más
quiero más, quiero más.

Album : ¿Qué Hago Aquí?

Por qué se fue, por qué murió
por qué el señ or me lo quitó
se ha ido al cielo
y para poder ir yo
debo también ser buena
para estar con mi amor.
í bamos los dos al anochecer
oscurecía y no podía ver
él manejaba, iba a más de cien
prendió las luces para leer.
había un letrero de desviación
el cual pasamos sin precaución
muy tarde fue al enfrenar
el auto volcó y hasta el fondo
fue a dar.
por qué se fue, por qué murió
por qué el señ or me lo quitó
se ha ido al cielo
y para poder ir yo
debo también ser buena
para estar con mi amor.
al vueltas dar yo me salí
por un momento no supe de mí
al despertar hacia el auto corrí
y aún con vida lo pude hallar.
al verme lloró, me dijo adiós
allá te espero donde está dios
él ha querido separarnos hoy
abrázame fuerte porque me voy.
al fin lo abracé
y al besarlo se sonrió
después de un suspiro
en mis brazos quedó.
por qué se fue, por qué murió
por qué el señ or me lo quitó
se ha ido al cielo
y para poder ir yo
debo también ser buena

No, no, no sé...
no sé, ¿qué voy a hacer sin él?
si no puedo estar con él
y no quiero estar sin él.
Sé que nunca voy a querer
como lo quise a él.
no, no, no, no...
Sé que nunca voy a sentir
tanta magia dentro de mí.
y sé muy bien que tal vez
no lo vuelva a ver mas que en mis sueños
que reservo para querer (para querer).
Sé que amarlo no me hace bien.
no debo estar con él.
no, no, no, no...
Sé que mi manera de ser
no es justamente lo que quiere él
y sé muy bien que jamás me llegara a querer...
y sé muy bien también
que se olvidará de mí...
Pero no sé, no sé
¿qué voy a hacer sin él?
si no puedo estar con él
y no quiero estar sin él
Pero no sé, no sé
¿qué voy a hacer sin él?
si no puedo estar con él
y no quiero estar sin él...
no, no, no sé, no sé...

Cosas De La Vida Lyrics

Artist : TREVI, GLORIA
Album : ¿Qué Hago Aquí?

I wake up to me very nervous,
in my quarter there is a shade,
he is a face thief cusca that approaches
and that touches I to me I say
to him does not take
allara my stock market over
there to me its sight is dangerous
says that it wants another thing.
if it wants something but that the
awakener brings roses suddenly
to me wakes up to me in the opportune
thing and with fury
I burst it against the
floor in a second.

things, things, things, things,
things of the life, things that happen to us,
things that you do not enjoy, things that escape

to you. of a single jump I rise is
no soap and vain they are not
going to give the 7 to me and
quarter will arrive behind
schedule at the work finally I
arrive at office the head whom that
sees and it shouts, raises the quarter that
puts to me yet and a
notebook. it tweaks
to me by back and I do not think to leave,
and confucion did one to me me
para the heart that we have relation
or looks for positioning

things, things, things, things,
things of the life, things that happens to us,
things that you do not enjoy, things that escape to you.

and I leave walking tendre that
to look for work I
watch for all sides in the
corner are tacos and
ahunque almost knows
to dog the taquero sees me ugly so
that I do not bring money,
but it says a secret to me I can pay
to you with a single kiss, the taquero bigoton,
of trancazo callus I put legs in
action and me subi in a truck.

things, things, things, things,
things of the life, things that happen to us,
things that you do not enjoy, things that escape

to you. in the school the professor
wants all the lesson that puts
MB to me if it is that I behave well,
says that to happen I must
experiment in the sexual education
and it wanted to help to me is going
to me to reprobate then I do not
teach anything I am wanted
to escape I am frightened, that dira sucks,
that dira people, wanted to find
to alguin different. the advice who
I give them, podria not to be better,
takes care of either their situation,
by or of the nation

things, things, things, things,
things of the life, things that happen to us,
things that you do not enjoy, escapan.cosas
things that you,
things of the life,
things that happen to us,
things that you do not enjoy,
things that escape to you.
things of the life,
things that happen to us,
things that you do not enjoy,
things that escape to you
things of the life,
things that happen to us,
things that you do not enjoy,
things that escape to you.
things of the life,
things that happen to us,
things that you do not enjoy,
things that go away to you.

Mañana Lyrics

Artist : TREVI, GLORIA
Album : ¿Qué Hago Aquí?

Tu,
con tus ojos
con brillo de luna
y tu boca envidiosa
que no da, que no da
que no da, na-na-nada
tu,
con tu amante
y amigo el viento
que alborota tu cabello
y revela todos tus sueños
revueltos, reveldes locos
y enamorados
de ti, de mañana y del deseo
de lo que quiero ser
y mañana,
si hay mañana lo seré
Y mañana, mañana, mañana
si despierto
al despuntar el alba
iré a buscarte
a alguna parte
para confesarte
Y mañana, mañana, mañana
que salga el sol
y estemos los dos
enamorados de la mano
te diré que hay mas mañana
Y mañana, mañana, mañana
si tu me dices que
no sientes nada
te diré que no me importa
todavía hay mas mañana
que otra ves...
Tu,
que me miras
sin pizca de nada
solo logro arrancarte palabras
y enloqueces mis sentidos
con tus formas cruel destino
el de no poder ser viento
y enredarme en todo tu cuerpo
oh,oh,oh, tu sabe dios
que es lo que te dió
para provocar tanto amor
sabe él si alguna vez
tu magia me haga bien
y mañana,
si hay mañana
lo sabré.

Le Diré, Les Diremos Lyrics

Artist : TREVI, GLORIA
Album : ¿Qué Hago Aquí?

Dicen por ahí
que tu madre habla mal de mí
que yo no soy una chica
buena y distinguida,
que no te haré feliz.
dile a tu mamá
que mi madre habla de ti igual
y los dos enamorados
igual de destrampados
hacemos una pareja genial.
hay mucha gente
que dice que me mientes
la misma gente
que envidia mi suerte
y yo les digo
con una mirada y sin palabras
algo que les deja
la sangre congelada.
les diré, les diremos
que nos dejen en paz
les diré les diremos
que nos dejen soñar
les diré, les diremos
que se pueden guardar
todo lo que piensan
de esta pareja perfecta.
les diré, les diremos
que nos dejen en paz
les diré les diremos
que nos dejen soñar
les diré, les diremos
que se pueden guardar
todo lo que piensan
de esta pareja perfecta.
dice una amistad
que sin carro
no se puede ya amar
nunca le hablaron de rincones
cubiertos por la noche
ni la húmeda y dulce realidad.
hay mucha gente
que dice que me mientes
la misma gente
que envidia mi suerte
y yo les digo
con una mirada y sin palabras
algo que les deja
la sangre congelada.
les diré, les diremos
que nos dejen en paz
les diré les diremos
que nos dejen soñar
les diré, les diremos
que se pueden guardar
todo lo que piensan
de esta pareja perfecta.
les diré, les diremos
que nos dejen en paz
les diré les diremos
que nos dejen soñar
les diré, les diremos
que se pueden guardar
todo lo que piensan
de esta pareja perfecta.
