Turned Clouds

I’m sick and tired
of picking these thorns from my leg
you’ve got me sitting here
lost in my own head
did it really have to go down this way?
or was there something clever
that I could have said

you know the weather outside
well it just ain’t right
and it’s not that I’m just cloudy and blue
things are gonna change
and I don’t wanna see it rain
on you

well I don’t need no pills to calm down
just need a minute
to put my feet back on the ground
oh the weight of gold is a sight to behold
and so I practice with lead
but maybe that’s the reason why
I’ve got thorns in my leg

but oh, I’ve got something to lose
don’t you say that I am alone
you’ve had your fun
now please won’t you come back home

well I’ve heard you’ve been moving around
yeah two feet be kissing the ground
and I sure as hell know better than most
there’s no sense in beating it down
so let’s roll on down the river
let’s flow right in to the sea
where angels roam, we’ll rustle our bones
back to our home in the trees

and oh, I’ll be leaving soon
don’t you say I’m going alone
you’ve had your fun
now please won’t you come back home…

look around this city
you must be out of your mind
it’s only time now
before it all comes down
right back to the ground

settle down now mama
you better run back home
I ain’t gonna be waking up alone

look around this city
you must be out of your mind
it’s only time now
before it all comes down
right back to the ground
