you hide yourself away vacation from the pain of waking up feeling exactly the same and all you've ever known your feet hurt when they're cold your fingers freeze just like the heart inside your chest but that's not what your supposed to see that's not why we tell these lies and pray for rain that's how it's meant to be that's not why we change our minds but stay just the same soup and razor blades the sun peaks through the shade your eyelids open but you crawl back in the sheets as tall as you have grown your boot heels still don't know why you won't just take a walk downtown with me that's not what you're supposed to see that's not why we tell these lies and pray for rain that's how it's meant to be that's not why we change our minds but stay just the same you tear me up you tear me up into pieces and you tape me back up that's how it's meant to be that's not why we change our minds but stay just the same stay the same just the same nothing's ever gonna change stay the same just the same nothing's ever gonna change

if the angels can't hear our prayers and the traders can't sell our shares and the faders can't hide our errors will we keep waiting while we keep fading? when I met you in the corn rows at dawn with your golden sweater on and I turned around you were gone you left me waiting I can't keep waiting because the summer's coming fast and the summer's here at last and the winter is gone and past we spend our lives waiting for something that comes but lord knows it never lasts and the summer's coming fast and the summer's here at last and the winter is gone and past we spend our lives waiting for something that comes but lord knows it never lasts for something that comes but lord knows it just won't last for something that comes but lord knows all things must pass

Graceland 06:18
The Mississippi Delta was shining Like a National guitar I am following the river Down the highway Through the cradle of the civil war I'm going to Graceland Graceland In Memphis Tennessee I'm going to Graceland Poor boys and pilgrims with families And we are going to Graceland My traveling companion is nine years old He is the child of my first marriage But I've reason to believe We both will be received In Graceland She comes back to tell me she's gone As if I didn't know that As if I didn't know my own bed As if I'd never noticed The way she brushed her hair from her forehead And she said losing love Is like a window in your heart Everybody sees you're blown apart Everybody sees the wind blow I'm going to Graceland Memphis Tennessee I'm going to Graceland Poor boys and pilgrims with families And we are going to Graceland And my traveling companions Are ghosts and empty sockets I'm looking at ghosts and empties But I've reason to believe We all will be received In Graceland There is a girl in New York City Who calls herself the human trampoline And sometimes when I'm falling, flying Or tumbling in turmoil I say Oh, so this is what she means She means we're bouncing into Graceland And I see losing love Is like a window in your heart Everybody sees you're blown apart Everybody sees the wind blow In Graceland, in Graceland I'm going to Graceland For reasons I cannot explain There's some part of me wants to see Graceland And I may be obliged to defend Every love, every ending Or maybe there's no obligations now Maybe I've a reason to believe We all will be received In Graceland
