Lyrics

The Good Earth

 


 

On The Roof

I know I
Said you can't (even) fly
On your way
I hope you'll be OK

Stop for a while
Talk about it
For a while

From now on
Sooner or later
Sing a new song
Call me when you're better

Stop for a while
Talk about it
For a while

In a while
In a while
For a while
For a while

The High Road

Take a ride
Take a ride and keep on going
Look around
Look around and just keep going
The white lines
The white lines the side of the road
They go on
They go on right to your home

See the signs
See the signs upon your way
On the ground
On the ground is where you'll stay
It's gonna rise
Gonna rise and carry us home
Gonna rise
Gonna rise and carry us home tonight

Now it's time
Now it's time to let 'er go
That's right
Let 'em know just where they're going
It's gonna rise
Gonna rise and carry us home
Gonna rise
Gonna rise and carry us home tonight

The Last Roundup

Out in the orchards
Down by the barn
Someone is calling,
"Come around, come around."

Late that night
Hearing voices
Empty cars
Out on the highway
Slowing down
Waiting for morning to come

Looking for anyone
Down by the water
Nobody's talking
Look around, look around

Late that night
Distant voices
Empty cars
Out on the highway
Slowing down
Waiting for morning to come

Down in the cellar
Over in a corner
Somebody's yelling,
"I'm coming out, I'm coming down."

Late that night
Hearing voices
Burning cars
Out on the highway
On the ground
Praying for morning to come

Slipping (Into Something)

Looking for something
Eyes closed in suspense
Waiting for someone
Does it make any sense?

Only an hour
To make it all mine
Hardly worth waiting
And I don't have the time

Search for conviction
With eyes open wide
Feeling so restless
So empty inside

Plenty of chances
And no one will win
Over and over
And over again
Needing somebody
Needing some help
Slipping into something
And out of something else

When Company Comes

Sit around
Sit around

Let's go

Well alright
Well alright
Let's go
Let's go
Let's go
Let's go
All night long
All night long

(spoken?)

Why don't we ? I know you?
Why don't we ? I know you?
Go low (?)
Low low (?)
Go slow
Slow
All night long
All night long

All night long

Two Rooms

Out from the yard
Out in the dark
Let it go on
Let it go on

Become what you are
Become what you are
Can't be too hard
Can't be too hard

The offer is hard
The right time to start
Time to go on
Right from the heart

Become what you are
Become what you are
Can't be too hard
Can't be too hard

Become what you are
Become what you are
Can't be too hard
Can't be too hard

The Good Earth

You know what the others know
Seven years stay at home
Talk about the old fun
People never listen hard

I can't stay
It's got to be that way
Can't be alone
I guess that you know

Many times I heard you say
Try and last just one more day
Listen to the rain again
Trying hard to understand

I can't stay
It's got to be that way
Can't be alone
I guess that you know

I can't get along
Take me back where I belong
I've been gone too long
Take me back

I can't get along
Take me back to my home
Seven years way too long
Call me up and I'll be gone

I can't stay
It's got to be that way
Can't be alone
I guess that you know

I can't get along
Take me back where I belong
Been gone way too long
Take me back to my home
I can't get along
Got to get back there where I belong
Got to get back baby back to my home
Back to the place where I belong
Can I get back?
O Can I get back?

Tomorrow Today

How can you go home?
Turning back (alone?)
Can't (?) gone outside
???

It's better talking
Right from the start
You get excited
I fall apart
Again

There you are
You won't go too far
Can't pretend
???

It's better talking
Right from the start
We get excited
We fall apart
Again

Slow Down

Hold on
Keep on trying ...
Keep on trying
Slow Down
You can make it
Try and make it
It's so hard
Making promises
Breaking promises
It's alright
It's alright

Got a lot to learn
Got a ways to go
When ya gonna learn
What a way to go

Hold on
Slow down
So hard
Alright

Got a lot to learn
Got a ways to go
When ya gonna learn
What a way to go

Slow down
