lifeblood: songs: lyrics: 32 seconds


it's all coming down in 32 seconds
like rain on your blue velvet coat
you run to find cover
you search for another
new shelter where your ship can float

but then the bow breaks and your roof is mistaken
for a brown leather shoe full of holes
you don't know who to trust
and you don't know where to go
and the government is moving too slow

oh no
room to grow
won't you
try not to let
disappointment show
oh no
room to grow
won't you
try not to let
disappointment show

your children are crying and your will is dying
in site you can see no relief
housing is one thing
but a home is another
for that much you'd stick to the streets

oh no
room to grow
won't you
try not to let
disappointment show
oh no
room to grow
won't you
try not to let
disappointment show

newspaper blankets and barrel fireplaces
the concrete gets cool in the fall
you've got a career
and you're making a living
but your riches
are uncountable
you've got pride
you've got character
you've got a name
even
if nobody
knows
oh

oh no
room to grow
won't you
try not to let
disappointment show
oh no
room to grow
won't you
try not to let
disappointment show

oh no
room to grow
won't you
try not to let
disappointment show
oh no
room to grow
won't you
try not to let
disappointment show

it's all coming down in 32 seconds
like rain on your blue velvet coat
even if nobody knows
well you try not to let disappointment show
